Hell hath no fury like the mother of a child who has been critically injured by evil people who need to be locked up.
The more I find out (because I am doing investigating myself) about exactly how H came to end up in the condition he is in, the more determined I become to make sure that the law enforcement and legal systems do their jobs properly in this case.
A commenter pointed this blog post out to me, from another mother-who-writes – someone like me – about the guilt she feels that her teenage daughter now requires inpatient psychiatric care. She wonders where she went wrong and how she screwed up. Just like me.
I really, REALLY wish I’d gotten my act together and figured out a way to attend this weekend’s fantastic Mom 2.0 Summit in Houston. The schedule looks just amazing, with many of the most innovative digital strategists in the country speaking, all of whom just happen to also be mamas. My friend Heather, with whom I’ve been working on a very exciting project over the past few months is one of the keynoters.
Anyway, I definitely want to try to make it to this one next year – with my nursing babe (she’s due July 31) along for the ride. This year – over the next few days – I’ll be watching for some live Mom 2.0 Summit blogging and tweeting from the lucky folks who are there.
