And for today's trick...Tink will come out of her room in tears and tell me that she does not feel safe around me. Because I told her to pick up her Barbies. And when she yelled at me, I hissed through gritted teeth that it is NOT OK to talk to me like that. THEN she called her useless father and told HIM that she did not feel safe around me. That SOB lives ACROSS the FRIGGIN STREET from me and he would not come and get her or even come over to give a hug and tell her that it would be OK. She she is crying that she misses her dad, telling him "I love you more", and now I can't hold it anymore and start bawling. And I don't even know why. Because my kid has found a new way to manipulate me. Because she called her father for help and he left her hanging. And because I do not know what to do with her anymore. Occupational Therapist (OT) went fine today, and we spent the afternoon in the pool. We get home and she is fighting me tooth and nail because I told her to stop calling her one friend and begging her to come over. This kid is another one. She tells Tink she will call her back but then never does. So TInk calls her over & over. I am so angry at the world right now. I am sick of people mistreating my kid, and I am sick of my kid mistreating me. Oh wait, NOW she is in my bed because she is afraid of robbers. God help me.
