Parents have to fear while they smile
Just me—I get to bitch and moan and admit that I’m scared and the situation sucks and I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Parents can feel those things but they don’t get to show it: they have to appear confident and happy so their kids aren’t scared. Damn do I have a newfound respect for parents. I don’t know how they do it. I’m barely doing what I have to for myself. They are incredible.
