Dear J-

Well, everyone has survived the day that mom went back to work, though not without quite a bit of angst and frustration. You try to do fun things and they’re not fun for everyone, so make the most of it and cut the visit short if it isn’t going well. Don’t starve (or let them undersleep) the kids if you value your own sanity. Be willing to let transgressions go; bullying doesn’t accomplish anything but resentment. Be willing to laugh at your own ridiculousness and don’t predispose yourself to losing your temper just because you think you should.

Laugh a little, and grab the moments where you can. Live.
