You know where else that is true?
|...here's a hint.|
You work and work and work at making your child behave in a manner that resembles a human being. A small, wild, nose-picking human, but at least a human!!
And then they go and have all kinds of medical dramz, and maybe you feel really sad about it and want them to be happy. Maybe the routine is all thrown off. Maybe you are so fracking exhausted from worrying about them that you let things slide. Things you would normally NEVER let slide. You give them the distinct impression that they are completely and totally in charge of everything.
|Ignore ALL the rules!!!|
Hopefully it gets us somewhere. Because seriously? Parenting is exhausting shit, but it is ten times more exhausting when your child is behaving like a manic sociopath.
|Sure, it's cute NOW, but just wait til she leaves for the Horn of Africa.|
