You know I sometimes look at you and Bean like a glimpse down the road for me and my, uh, Spirited Child. Yesterday i got a text from a dear dear friend with a toddler who is looking that way (came into the world turned up to 11 and hasn't let up since) asking me if reading parenting books that deal with the same issues across many ages made me feel hopeless, like it will only get harder and harder (see: heroin?). i knew what she meant and texted back "Chapter 16: Juvie." All of which is to say, yeah, i feel this, and as always, i appreciate reading your writing about these feelings.
