SD hurt my baby
My absolute worst nightmare became a reality this evening. SD smashed my 11 mo finger in the door so badly I thought I was broken. His finger was so squished it looked mishapen until it started swelling. We’re very lucky it isn’t broken. His finger getting smashed though is not the nightmare I’m referring to unfortunately. No. My nightmare is SD purposely hurting one of my kids. I know what everyone is gonna say. How can I be so sure she did this on purpose? She told me she did. I was trying to find out the time frame of when she was aware that she’d hurt him because did she tell me he was hurt? No she didn’t. I wanted to believe it was an accident and that she didn’t tell me because she was afraid of getting in trouble. Of course I understand why she wouldn’t want to tell me, but for her to have known his finger was there and close the door and hold it on it while he’s screaming bloody murder is crossing a line. I should have been there immediately. I’m so disappointed and upset with myself for being distracted and brushing off the crying for a minute. I absolutely hate that I wasn’t right there for him. What really gets me is the reaction I got from my fiancé. Not only does he think me grounding her through tomorrow was too harsh he actually told me he thinks she “just said she did it on purpose” because he doesn’t believe she’s capable of something like that. This is the same girl who not even a week ago hit my son her baby brother because he pulled her hair so hard he cried. I don’t know how to feel besides upset and now scared for my kids.
