We have a play date this afternoon! I know, traditionally, the play date is for the kids but this one is as much for the parents as it is for the kids. I’m trying to manage my expectations so I can manage my anxiety over this whole thing.
- Today, I am hoping Monkey will walk into a new house without tears.
- Today, I am hoping he can find some enjoyment in playing with some new friends.
- Today, I am hoping my nervousness about how he will do won’t show.
So, my job for the next hour is to be calm, cool and collected. That’s realistic, right?
Quick, someone toss me some coping skills!
