I do all of these things
that is why I feel so hopeless. She helps me with everything. She makes coffee in the morning, spreads the peanut butter on her toast, helps me switch loads for laundry, helps me sweep, shovel, picks her clothes, chooses dinner.
But the moment I have to do one thing on my own, her whole world falls apart and she will lay on the floor screaming about how nobody loves her and she doesn't love mommy.
I take time every single morning to have it just be me and her and I play whatever she wants. She always finds a way to ruin it. This morning we were just talking and snuggling in bed like she wanted and she punched me IN THE FACE. In the middle of a sentence.
