Particularly when your 12 year old is attacked coming home from school by a stranger and a (we hope fake!) gun pulled on him. Totally traumatised and we have spent hours spent at the police station (We have kept it out of the news) He is strong and totally insisted on my not meeting him to take him home today... until he walked in the door, I was very, very nervous!
An awesome school librarian I know died suddenly and the above child has also just told me one of his teachers due to give birth in a few weeks with her first child, lost the baby last night. He is very sad about that too.
I'm hoping the next week has a lot better events in it!
