Ladies and gentlemen, I am a struggling single parent with a significant disability. I do not strike my child. I do not call my child names. I do not excessively yell at my child. I try not to embarrass my child. I provide ALL the basics for my child. I provide some of the luxuries for my child. I hug my child. I kiss my child. I say 'I love you' many times a day(even through text messaging if she's not with me) to my child. I encourage my child. I have real conversations with my child. I do the best that I can for my child.
My Kid has repeatedly asked one of her friends to come over for sleepovers or just to hang out and has been repeatedly told 'My mom said no'. The most recent time has been to work on an upcoming school project. And my Kid was told that this girl could only come over if there was another one of their friends coming too. There was never a reason given and I thought something was up. So I told the Kid to talk to her friend and find out what the problem was so that we could get it cleared up. I picked up the Kid from school today and found out that the reason her little friend could not come over is because of ME.
I am WEIRD. I don't spend enough time with my Kid. And because my Kid (who has long hair) got head lice last year that makes me a BAD MOM. So because I am a weird bad mother this girl isn't allowed to hang out with my sweet adorable Kid.
Out of respect for my own Kid, I can't even call this woman (whom I've only met maybe 3 times in the 6 years my Kid has been going to the same school as her daughter) to tell her off!! Where the hell does she get off placing that kind of judgment on someone she doesn't know??
Am I doing things like this??
Or worse yet, something like this???
You have got a lot of damn nerve talking smack lady. And if I was such a weird and horrible mom how is it that my Kid has good grades and is well liked by everyone she has ever met because she is such a funny and wonderful little person???
Today I am saying YES to being pissed right off!!
