The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”
What a wonderful mother. I am hardcore sobbing right now.
Watch the full video. It’s fantastic.
I missed a couple days of the blog challenge but I’m just going to keep going in order.
PROMPT #2: My heart is breaking
So I’ve mentioned before that my mom has been suffering from memory loss issues. I live too far to take proper care of her, but I try to come down as often as I can. My husband went out of own with my car (his truck overheats on long distances), so I wasn’t able to come down this weekend. My sister was also busy with her patients (she’s a therapist) and her newborn, so my mom was home alone.
Mom decided to climb a ladder but fell off and hit her head on the tile floor. My sister came down and rushed her to the ER. I braved the distance in hubby’s truck. She had a laceration and puncture wound on her head. There was sooo much blood. They stapled the wound and took a cat scan.
She’s banged up but she will be fine. I’m staying with her so I can change her bandages and monitor for any change in behavior. I don’t know how long I will be here. I’m supposed to go out of town on Thursday but now I don’t want to.
My sister and I are both wracked with guilt. We don’t have the means to be with her 24/7 yet but there just seems to be crisis after crisis.
I just want her to be safe. It really does break my heart.
