It was jacs 13th birthday today. While it was something to celebrate it is incredibly scary also.
While I have reached another one of those milestones…. Which start with no more nappies. no more children at the feet. No more children in primary school. I no longer have any Tweens!
The scary side of things is realising that at 11 we had to acknowledge we couldn’t deal with her mood swings alone anymore. She was simply too big to pick up and put in her room.
Every year she gets taller and stronger. Her meds waver a little more, she is a little more reluctant to comply with meds, resistant to increasing doses.
There is no way to know what the future holds. I can merely do my best to try to keep her on the path and hope she doesn’t wander far.
