Does anyone else have a child they never see? A kid who gets up, goes to school, goes to a friend’s house or the mall or a sporting event after school, comes home at bedtime and disappears into her room? She’s never been in trouble anywhere, she’s getting straight A’s in school, I have no reason to think that she’s taking drugs or hanging out with a bad crowd (I know the kids she’s at the mall with). But I never get to see her, let alone talk to her, and that can’t be good.
Just a phase? Maybe we’ll go back to being friends someday, the way we were when she was younger? Frankly, I miss her.
