My princess was invited to a birthday party this weekend. I was extremely hesitant to let her go because I knew the kids were going to be outside most of the time. She had been coughing a little, every day this week. I knew that after running outside for a few hours it would get worse.
I know that I can’t put her in a bubble to protect her from the world, so I decided to let her go. I made sure she left with all her medication and left my number with the adults in case of an emergency.
As much as I would like to keep her away from all things harmful, I can’t. I know a day will come when I have to release her into the world alone. To prepare the both of us for that day, I think it was a good start to allow her go to the party. I must let her go so she can learn to breathe on her own.
