do your kids ever say anything to you that just cuts deep? harrison did this tonight and it's like he knows just how to hurt me when he's upset at me. of course, i'm trying not to take it personally and i know he's only 5 but it reminds me of how i hurt my parents many times with my words. i rarely considered their feelings, it was all about me. it's so hard to see myself in him, the parts i don't like about myself, and wonder "how do i fix this???" "how to i help him keep from making the mistakes i made/make???" i'm completely at a loss tonight!
those of you with just wee little ones don't know this yet but it HURTS!!! even though i know he loves me, it killed me for him to go to bed upset. he would not come around, he would not even say a word, i could not reach him. a lot of prayers have been offered up tonight for my sweet boy...who IS usually sweet.
not looking forward to the teenage years, that's for sure.
