At the time, I just didn’t like her a whole lot.
I’m sorry for those that are offended. There are times for every one of my kids that I love them, but I don’t really like them. This probably happens more frequently with Bubbly. When you have a child with significant emotional special needs, it is impossible to like them all the time. Dang people, it’s impossible to like ANY child all the time. If you say you do, well, as my Ghanaians friends would say…
You are a liar.
Since I published that post, the one that elicited so many emotions from so many, we have taken Bubbly back to therapy twice. We have talked to her teacher endlessly. We’ve put new coping mechanisms in place for her. We’re all a little happier again, albeit a little more tired. But, it’s what we do. Because even when we don’t like her, we love her lots. And when you love someone, you exhaust yourself to find ways to fix it for them when they’re struggling.
who wishes the world would just calm down a bit.
