Just take deep breaths…

After a tear-filled good-bye to our neighbors, I got in the van and this was my conversation with Sammy.

Sammy: Mom, are you crying?

Me: Yes.

Sammy: Why?

Me: Because I’m sad.

Sammy: Why?

Me: Because I’m going to miss our neighbors.

Sammy: Oh. [Long pause] then you might want to take some deep breaths.


We often practice breathing techniques with the children to help them calm down (things like “Make a dragon noise” or “Blow out the birthday candles 10 times”…which probably is a bit like lamaze, now that I think of it!)


 And so I begin this adventure…one breath at a time!
