Aside from talking about mommy issues, Liz has always been a strong advocate of mental health.

Naturally, she decided to discuss the fact that her son Luca had started to show symptoms of anxiety. So, she decided that it was important to write a blog entry about a time in her son's life that was particularly challenging.

One day, while she waited with her son for the school bus, which was running late, she saw something.

Her son Luca had grown anxious, but after the bus got there, he got on it and went to school. But this left Liz feeling a little worried after witnessing what appeared to be her son suffering from some serious anxiety.

Over time, Liz paid closed attention to Luca, whose anxiety seemed to increase more and more.

Liz decided that one of the best ways to cope with this situation was to write about it on a regular basis. Meanwhile, she hoped that Luca's anxiety would lessen as the Christmas break approached; but it actually didn't.

A few weeks had passed and when it came time to wait for the bus again, Liz's concerns resurfaced.

Her son had apparently reached a critical point with his anxiety. Even as the bus pulled away, she noticed that he was crying. Obviously, she wasn't going to stand there and do nothing. She knew she had to act fast.

The next day, Liz came up with a nifty idea that involved her son's wrist, a pen, and a kiss.

She grabbed her son's wrist and gave it a kiss. Then she used the pen to mark the area where she had kissed him near a vein. In it, she decided to draw a little heart, and it was the sweetest idea that she had come up with so far.
