You know sometimes I cause trouble just by being the mom. I don’t know exactly what I did tonight but something happened to cause a lot of tears.
Lots of tears but very few words – at least not to me! She has been on the phone for hours but to me – well lets just say pulling teeth is a whole lot easier than getting her to talk – even wisdom teeth!
I don’t even know how I caused this particular incident – it seems to have begun before I even got home from work. I just walked in to a kid visibly upset, asked what was wrong and got tears. And the cold shoulder. And the silent treatment.
So when I told her “no” she could not stay out past 11 tonight I shouldn’t have been surprised when I went from being a horrible mom to being the worlds most horrible mom. Oh the joys of parenthood.
I think she liked it that I offered to drive her to Saskatoon anyways so she could go to her track meet Saturday – even if I am horrible. Maybe the trip will be long enough so she will talk. We can have really good days and then days like today.
