Maybe it's the stress of this past week at work...or finding an old picture of me taken during the camp session where the CSA happened...or just realizing that my kids are growing up....but....
I was listening to music on my iPod when "Puff the Magic Dragon" came up. I hadn't heard that song in years (and it always made me sad). By the middle of the song, I was sitting in the living room bawling and trying to hide it from the family.
Earlier today I watched "Toy Story 2" with my kids and just about lost it at the part where the girl forgets Jessie and gives her away.
The common theme here is the loss of innocence...which needs no additional commentary from me.
