I know you are in bed, listening to the footsteps up above, and all of the voices. They are milling around and it scares you, but it’s okay.
Put on some music so you can’t hear them anymore. There! 🙂 That is nice. It’s just you and me now.
Now get out of bed. It’s just us. We’re going to pick out some clothes that we like. Should we shower? Nah. You showered just a day or two ago. Okay, so let’s go to the restroom and use the toilet and sponge bath your armpits and brush your teeth and brush your hair. Then get dressed in these clothes that you like.
After we’re ready for the day like that, we will have to go upstairs. We could place a little tissue paper in your ears so the sounds don’t intimidate you (there’s going to be a lot of commotion up there). You won’t be alone, love, I’m right here. I’m not leaving.
We have to take your medicine then and eat breakfast. Then, we will head out to a store for the one recipe you’re going to attempt for tomorrow’s dinner (tonight’s dinner is being made by other people we’ve never met).
See? It won’t be so bad. Before you go to the store, it is safe to look around. These are ALL people you love VERY much. It is okay to take a minute to greet them and ask how they are doing. Smile. It’s okay to feel love toward them. But then leave before the commotion overwhelmes you.
You’ll be fine! I’ll be right there with you. ❤
