He and the neighbors had a little mishap on the lake today with the small sailboat we recently sold them. Actually a couple mishaps…everyone is fine physically. Suffice to say we put peroxide in his ears tonight in an attempt to kill bacteria from the lake water.
I had the boys today and Jaxon wanted to see Papa on the sailboat so I loaded them in the car and we drove over to the lake….just in time to see it coming out of the water on the trailer with the 3 of them dripping. I didn’t mentally freak out. when Robbien gave me a brief rundown of their 2 hour adventure, I did a cursory glance of everyone and I genuinely felt very calm. On the way home I didn’t do any catastrophic thinking…I didn’t think about how they (he) could have been injured, what if he had died, any of my typical OMG OMG anxiety thoughts. This is big! This is very big!
It happened…everyone is fine…I’m glad I wasn’t with them…move on!
Good Night, Dear Diary.
Until next time….
Congrats for not freaking out. Sounds like growth. For me, it’s just emotional exhaustion. I don’t panic much because that would require too much energy. Sometimes when I panic, think, “Hooray! I’m getting my energy back.” But it all turned out good for you and I’m sure they were all relieved at your reaction.
