for kt could have been a "tad" longer. My daughter stood in my kitchen yesterday afternoon & proceeded to inform me how crappy my marriage was & why. This statement was beyond all I could take ~ I blasted the young lady. "How dare you judge me & my 20 years of marriage - how dare you? You're 14, have a great deal to learn of relationships & you have absolutely no right to comment on my marriage. None!" I proceeded to ask kt just how many months we've gone with-o some kind of crisis in this family over the last 7 years. "I can tell you kt, I have it in a journal." "How often have husband & I had any significant break from crisis/behaviors/emotional breakdowns/antics?" My kt shrugged her shoulders & at least bowed her head in shame. "How many couple do you think survive this type & level of stress?" As parents, we love you unconditionally. We have adopted & parented you through the good (not much) & the bad. We have spent countless hours teaching, finding you all the help we could possibly find & in the process losing track of ourselves. You will not stand there in your 14 y/o know it all attitude & judge husband & myself. Okay, ladies, I'm not proud of myself. I don't care anymore ~ I've taken enough from all sides. I just don't want to do this anymore.
