My oldest will be in highschool this year
was responsible for making sure
and Inhalers were with him
and they were kept in the school office
not this year
they are with him.
when he remembers to grab them
I throw the epipen trainer at him
your throat is closing up
you didn’t realize something you ate had nuts in it
quick quick what do you do?”
and then he groans or yells back depending on his mood
and demonstrates his skills for me
Have I prepared him well enough?
he’s been reading food labels for several years now
Have I remembered to tell him everything he needs to think of?
I know, I know
Let go and let God.
but I’m mom
and if anything ever happened to him because of something I failed to prepare him for…
for both of us
