So we live just north of Boston. Thankfully our family and friends were not directly affected. I was home when it happened but locked myself in the room to watch. We try very hard to keep from seeing things but its hard. We watch hockey, we watched the game Wednesday and after a very touching national anthem they rolled photos. By the time you get the remote to change channel he's seen stuff. You walk my a newspaper stand there are pictures. His older brother is 9, we have told him more. I need him to hear from me, then the school yard. One of the victims is from our hometown where he still goes to day care and both grandparents live, you can't drive by without seeing news crews. Oh look mommy tv people. We don't tell him why they are there and we told oldest to keep his mouth shut. Plus DH and I are different. it rocks you. I had to put on my brave face and go back to work in Boston Wednesday. My office is 1.5 away from the site and pretty much low police presense except at train stations but it just feels different. We had no regular broadcast tv for over 30 hours it was hard to escape. Thank God for cable and on demand and DVRs so then DH and I getting most our news on line and hard to filter and so many images out there.
My little one just seems on edge. he's been whinny and clingy sleep issues. Don't know if he is feeding off us. I'm trying my best but when you wake up and everything is on lockdown its hard. People talk as much as I try I can't keep him in a bubble I can't. I know he doesn't understand what's going on. He had a nightmare ast night about a bug. He had an issue in the car with my dad over a bug and again at lunch over a bug. Could be coincidence could be he just knows something bad happened just not what and this is processing...
