A craptacullar day

Today was so long and emotionally draining that at the end of it I almost took the wrong baby home with me. I got the stroller loaded and reached towards my friend’s baby and only stopped trying to pick him up when she asked me what I was doing. C was looking at me the whole time with a look on her face like “uh Mom… I’m over here…”

The funeral was a horrible, horrible experience. No one should ever have to bury their 18 month old child. Hearing the parents wail was truly heartbreaking. Many, many tears were shed at that graveside.

After the funeral I went back to work.
One of the biggest projects I work on during the year consists of getting all of the program registration forms to our congregant. Through no fault of mine we were two weeks behind schedule this year. Today was the day we had to collate and mail all of the components of this big mailing. It was a tad much to deal with…

This weekend we are moving on to happier things. C’s first birthday party is on Sunday.

  • What a horrible day. I can’t imagine.

    I hope the party is a huge success. Happy Birthday to your little girl. 🙂

  • It sounds like it has been a very rough and exhausting week! Funerals are not fun and I can’t imagine what the family must be going through. I am a religious person and I believe we will see our families on the other side, we will be joined together again.

    I’m so sorry for this hard time. Sometimes life doesn’t make any sense. Good luck with the Birthday on Sunday- I want to see lot’s of pics!

  • Oh dear god, I finally caught up with your blog and this is the worst thing I have ever read about. I am so sorry for the family and for you and for everyone. This is awful.
