    Thank you, Cara, for this because it's nice to know I'm not the only one who has these panic attacks. Reading your blog was like seeing in written form the running dialogue in my head. After I put my oldest in school for a brief moment the dialogue changed to reflect all my worries about her being at school and wondering whether I'd made the right decision (we decided that we didn't). This worry is natural. We love our kids.

    You make me smile, Cara! I knew I had to read this when it was titled "Cara's Weekly Panic"! Don't sweat the small stuff--I have failed at most of those things and more, but I am still here kicking. You are doing just fine! (Plus, when it comes to making people smile, you are definitely NOT a failure!)
