My mother suffered a stroke in February of 2017. Since then I have attempted to balance her appointments, and medical needs with the demands of school, family, work and my personal life. I do this not because of any loyalty to her, but to lessen the stress felt by others in her life. Our mother/ daughter relationship died many, many years ago, so to those who respond to my lack of emotion, "That is your mother", this is why;
Because my first memory of you is being told that you would allow a promised spanking to “slide”.
Because you are a liar who demands honesty from others.
Because you blamed others for everything that went wrong in your life.
Because you placed your burdens squarely on my shoulders.
Because you listened to find fault instead of listening to care.
Because I was always wrong and you were always right.
Because you were adamant that we weren’t friends.
Because you ripped the collar of my favorite dress when you slammed my head into a wall.
Because you had a chance to do it all over again and you refused to change.
Because the list goes on.
I happen to think that young children look ridiculous in long pants. Queen Elizabeth happens to agree with me.
I don't know. We probably won't cut the Little Ones hair until he asks us to cut it, or until I am tired of combing it.
Even though The Older One is considered a "big boy", he fails to meet steps 2, 3, 4 & 5. Size alone should never be considered a factor when transitioning into or out of a Child Safety Seat.
I don't condone the physical or punitive discipline of children, and that includes spanking. If it is unacceptable for a man to smack his wife when she does not adhere to his wishes, then spanking a child who misbehaves should also be a criminal offense.
