Hi Fellow Spineys,
I just need to vent a little bit.
My 7 year old daughter broke my heart today. She screamed that I never play with her anymore and all I do is lay on the couch.
This was so upsetting to me!! I think this in my head, but to hear it from my kid, who is usually so empathetic to my situation, it just killed me. I cried for an hour.
Our day started with me getting both kids ready in the am and going to karate, where for 1 hour I sit/stand and am totally uncomfortable the whole time.
Then, we get home, trying to make my breakfast/lunch (they ate) and they both decide to do crafts, but of course they need help every 2 minutes and my lunch is burned.
Hubby finally comes home from work but they continue to bug me. He has a home project that must get done, but he tries to help.
After I finally eat I take them and the crazy dog on a nature hike. Forgot the "less pull harness" and came back home with knees and back aching. The kids and dog had a great time.
As soon as we get home daughter wants me to play a game and I begged off for a few minutes with my heating pad. Thats when she yelled about me just laying on the couch all the time. Hubby was livid and ordered her to her room and then had a talk with her.
I can understand she's frustrated because I'm not playing 24/7, but she's a kid and has no idea how much I suck it up to do what I do with them. I know she was sorry, but still, it hurt my heart. If any of you are still reading at this point, thanks for listening.
