Now that we have some downtime, or rather self-imposed free time, I can now update the things that have been bothering me lately.
We finally told Lola. I think out of all the people we told, she was the one who took it best. Though her actions showed just how upset she was, she never made anyone feel that she’s the one to take care of. It was quite a relief to see the matriarch of the family taking things the rational way. It was just a bummer that Marga wasn’t there. It would have been better if she was there to reassure Lola that she’s okay, in spite of what happened.
I don’t know how to go about this really. I do know one thing though: I have stopped being responsible for her. This decision made her responsible for herself. It’s a complete change of pace to see her actually step up to the plate. So I guess our little girl is now a lady. What a way to become a lady though.
Dylan… well. He continuously surprises me every day. I don’t think he surprised me this much before. The support, the care… it was like he fell all over again. Though there was admittedly a huge rush of family drama yet again, I believe he has become more graceful than I expected. This time, he was handling things, and not letting me handle him.
Will update more later.
