Well, the first bout of crying came first thing in the morning. She decided to “borrow” flowers from the neighbours to put at our altar. Obviously, I have to find an opportunity to drill good values into her and there we started off on a tug-off war of words. Her excuse, “I don’t want it…God wants it!” See? why I don’t want her to be like me?…I take out my PMS guns at the first sight of trouble and she took out her God guns now! My ammo against me!!
Breather…an intermission of 2 mintues flat before the next tantrum begins…
This time obviously she’s sad, the holidays have started for all her friends in the building but she still has a week more to go.
“I want to stay at home and play with Joshua (her best friend
ever since he moved next door–he “hates” purple so G “hates” purple too, which by the way was her fav after pink.)
“You need to go to school to learn…”
“But I know everything…I know snake…I know Platypus..No, I don’t know Platypus because they didn’t teach me that in school…but I know everything.”
Well, all the way to school I got the silent treatment.
After school took her to the library to try and make it up to her somehow. Happy happy finally!
But how long do you think the rainbow stays…there we go again.
Rivers of tears suddenly and I had no idea what was happening…
“Are you hurt? What happened, sweety?”
“I don’t know what to draw on the card. I am making it for you.” Awww…my heart melted…put her on my lap and tried asking her what she would like to draw…caterpillar, house, funny face?
“No…ok..SMILEY FACE!” Tears wiped, snorts cleaned and we are ready to go. She back to her card and I back to my laptop.
2 mintues already?…Intermission ends—second half begins…
“I coloured the smiley face with the pencil…now I can’t see the eyes and the SMILE!!”
The circus continues…
Well, enough is enough…I needed to vent now I figured and got onto the blog. Hahaha…I am going to sip on ginger tea now while G is finally taking a nap and you guys read the story of my piss off day…not that I don’t appreciate it. Do come again and listen. Its truly therapeutic!
Urrghhh…not enough ginger in the tea…
