She’s had a hard time lately, at school, at home, with all the no friends she has, this have been tough.
There have been constant reminders and singing of that song we both hate “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and that has been met with lots of whining and complaining that I’m an asshole parent. When really, like all asshole parents, we are just trying to do the best we can with what little help and resources we have. But kids don’t get that. Kids want and they take and they want more, and oh, what a world! What a world this is, where you can’t always get what you want.
So things have been tough but they’re getting better, and clearly the kid is alright. She still has a belly full of laughter and a mouthful of smiles and a heart full of love for her asshole parent.
We are lucky girls.
