today the prompt over at what if we all cared is…

chocolate covered

*****

I wish I had some chocolate. I’d make chocolate covered strawberries! They are delicious! And our kids love them! The littles I mean! Come to think of it so do I!
Anyone else like chocolate dipped strawberries?
Actually, chocolate covered anything, now thats my cup of tea!

Courtesy of darina…she put this song in my head!

so darina, one of our littles, she is six, she’s been singing this song, this nelly song all day. And now its in my head. And now I cannot stop humming it. So I thought I’d drive you all crazy too, so I put it here. Enjoy.

i wish

i wish i can just feel like a kid. i feel so responsible for everyone and everything. i wish i can just let things go. just be a 12 year old kid. that sure would be nice.
do kid things. have fun. not worry. just be. just be free to be me. no fears no worries no responsibilities.
maybe one day it will come true for me. eileen is working with the adults on it. so i am hopeful it will.

Back then versus right now

do you know who I am?
do you know who you have?
yes, i say meekly
its you, mary
yes, I know you
We’ve met before
about 10 years ago
when you were an inpatient
in the psych ward
oh damn do I have to remember that time?
that time you were so mean?
mean to my child parts?
that time lexi wanted to cut
with a lid off of a lip gloss?
and you counted to 3
said it so meanly
took the lid away from her
told her you would not stand and watch her do this to herself
you didnt care about the pain she was in
Oh no you didnt care
and today, today you were so different
you were kind
you acted nicely towards us
treated us with respect
treated us like a human being
as if we’d only just met
and you didnt know our history
today, today you were the kind of nurse
I wished you were back then
when we were in so much desperate emotional pain

she makes me happy

it is allie. eileen makes me so happy. i love her gentle voice. i love her calming presence. i love her for a lot of reasons. today we forgot to bring our new book. lexi emailed her earlier to tell her. i know liz needed to talk today so we wouldnt have gotten a chance to read the book even if we’d brought it. its ok. we can read it maybe next week. i think it will be a good book, its called wherever you are, my love will find you. that is what i think about eileen. even when we’re apart, i know she loves me. i know she’s thinking of me. i know because shes told me before. she says she thinks about us during the week. she has told me that when certain things happen in her life, she thinks about us. thats so special. it makes me feel so good. i love her so much. i dont care if its wrong to love a therapist, i just do and i dont care if i shouldnt. she is like a mom to me and that is why i call her my heart mom. she is my safety. she teaches me things. she has taught me lots. she never lets me down. she always tells the truth. i love her for that. i dont like being lied to and she never ever lies to me. right now i feel so lucky that she came into our lives. i feel like hugging carol anne and saying thanks carol anne for searching for as long as you did and finding us such a great therapist. it is the best thing that could have happened to us.
allie, age 9
