I find myself wanting very badly to revive my old Hercules blog. I have this overwhelming compulsion to put my parenting strife into words again, and this is not the place for it. But I shouldn’t give anyone false hopes. Because the thing about raising Rio is that it’s an incredibly demanding, time-consuming job. And he needs me more than ever right now. Don’t worry, we’re pulling through. It’s just . . . damn . . . I never knew a kid could be so hard while he’s still so young. Sorry for the random personal rant, but I’m a bit consumed by all of it these days.
