I found myself giving advise the best I could to a friend who's baby was born 9 weeks early this week and is currently being cared for in SCUBU (special care baby unit), getting stronger every day but it'll be too soon to tell if any other problems will present for some time. I said to her mum to pass on from me that she can't worry about what might be and to concentrate on what is. That there are too many variables in 'might' and it'll be crazy making to worry about all of them. That she is strong and will cope with whatever crosses her path, good and bad. That worrying won't change what will be and to enjoy every minute of her little family as it is today, grab every moment and hold on to it as tightly as she is desperate to hold that tiny miracle that is her baby. xx
Now is choosing the best middle school which meets moo's needs now, trying not to put too much emphasis on the impact that decision will make on secondary schools yet. Who knows where we'll be in four years so what is best now is what is important.
