One evening I saw this note near bedroom door and the door was locked with the girl inside. All this because I asked her to write few extra lines.
And today she is at home with her appa. Her school is closed today and the cashew nut enthu cutlet in me volunteered to work from home but she replied with a strict NO. She added “I want appa to work from home” just to break my already broken heart into million pieces.
She thinks I exist only to make her drink milk, eat vegetables, do homework, wash face in the evening, brush teeth in the night et all..
Her frequent questions to me…
why does everything has to happen in your way?
will I ever get my free time? (especially when she just enjoyed all the free time and I ask her to write)
why should I listen to you always? why can’t you listen to me today? (Just to clarify listening to her means letting her watch more TV)
Don’t say anything now. I know what you are going to say. (When I call her name out to drink milk or do homework)
and she has bestowed me with the names as evil mommy, mean mommy and what not..
All these in spite of having
ample only free times on weekend, watching half hour of TV every evening, amma reading book to her at bedtime, buying her reward for all petty things (okayyy may be petty for me but not for her), spending quality time with her by making crafts or playing games.
where am I lagging? I am not denying the fact that there are “you are the best mommy”, “I love you sooo much” moments too but somehow today the negative force is dominating my mind.
The last words I heard from her today before leaving to work is “Go away…” because I gave her a glass of milk to drink after breakfast :(.
