It’s okay to cry… but who has the time?

I’ve had some very well meaning advice as I work my way through this period of grief.

One of the most common has been that ‘it’s okay to cry.’

True.  It is… but not, apparently, when you are a parent.

This was my afternoon….

“Mommy, why are you crying?”

“Mommy, why are you sad?”

“Mommy, he hit me.”

“Don’t touch me… Mom, he hit me again.”

“Mommy, are you still sad?”

“Mommy, are you done crying now?”

“Mommy.  I’m hungry.”

Mommy… I SAID I’m hungry!”

It may be okay to cry but I’m not sure I can schedule it in.
