Me, My Kids and Irene
I’m really ticked at Hurricane Irene. My family is taking our first real vacation since our oldest daughter was born, and now it looks like Hurricane Irene is planing to hone in on our territory. I started to talk with my daughter about it because I don’t want her to be too disappointed if our plans to visit Storyland are cut short or shortchanged by a hurricane. For the first time in her short life, she expressed a little bit of trepidation about a storm. I convinced her it would be fun to navigate by flashlight and listen to the rain on the skylights, and she was easily redirected. But I realized I was ill-prepared for the possibility of a real preschool freak-out. This article from Bright Horizons will be a big help if I need it.
