This new year brought an emotional rant from MK. Yesterday we caught her in a lie. She went into "drama mode" and let her dad have it in a verbal rant. I must say, as dad's go, my husband is an awesome one! He handles MK so well when she looses it.
During her rant she explained that she didn't feel we were very good parents because we choose not to do the things she wants us to do. She said she wasn't choosing for us to blame her for the lie, we were choosing that!
She is sick and tired of us. When my husband asked her why, she said because of all of the stuff we do, and she isn't making it up, it is true. She told my husband he knows what we're doing wrong and she wasn't going to tell us again! Apparently, nothing we do is working for her, like when we explain things she is confused. She asked, "What do I have to do to make you happy?" and he told her "You make me feel happy all of the time" and she said, "Well obviously it's not enough!".
Bless her heart. She is so mature sometimes, so emotionally immature sometimes, and so funny it hurts almost all of the time!
She went on for some time until she curled up in her dad's arms crying. She's so dramatic, it's almost unbelievable that she is only 7... she really sounds 14.
Outside of that, they started back to school today, and boy what a relief for all of us. Having them home all of December was tough!
In March, Layla is going to Horse Camp during the day, and MK is going to spend some quality one-on-one time at home with me.
I love these girls. There isn't ever a dull moment in this family!
