I still can’t believe we are in LA. The weather is so nice and the attitude here is so different it’s as if I am dreaming.
Amelia is still having mixed feelings about the move. Some days she cries and gets made at us for ruining her life by moving. She had a lot of friends in New York and we shielded her from all the bullshit we had to deal with.
But most of the time she is happy and enjoys our new city. We went to Inside Out last weekend and I learned a lot about dealing with emotions from that movie. I also cried like 20 different times during the film. If Amelia cries about missing friends or New York I just let her have those feelings and try not to make her “cheer up” or “get over it”. It’s hard watching her cry, but Inside Out really helped me see the importance of sadness.
I hope you enjoy your week and her are my linky links of the week!
