By HFP alumni parent, Silvia Selvatica (children nearly 8 yrs and 6 yrs).
I have been feeling a lot of throwbacks to my early days of parenting and my years as a stay-at-home parent. It can mess with my head or make me feel grateful- that I don’t, on top of it all, have an infant keeping me up all night. I just have anticipatory grief and homesickness in my (deep) sleep. Not sure which is more brutal.
My heart goes out to new parents navigating this and that. Heart and power to you!!
