SD sick

she’s sick and extra whiny and of course I expect it because all kids get like this when they’re sick. She expects me to come to her beck and call like her dad does and I’m just not ok with it. I can’t stand being around her when she’s like this. Expects everyone to drop everything to do something for, won’t ask for anything, wants everything handed to her on a silver platter, talks to you however she wants. I’m not allowed to get on to her for it either because she’s sick and not feeling good so my boyfriend becomes even more of a doormat for her. It’s like having a little sick tyrant running my house and I’m already sick of it. I don’t even want to be in the same room as her because I’m getting so annoyed with her. I know it’s because she’s not mine and I don’t have the same feelings towards her that I would if my 1 year old was sick. Really just venting because I can’t express being frustrated to anyone. And of course I’m taking care of her and doing everything I can to make her comfortable I’m just annoyed.

It is posts like this, and memories of pulling my hair out when my skids were young and sick, that made me understand why my mother gave us "southern cough syrup" when we were kids.  Bourbon mixed with honey and lemon juice.  Stopped our cough and knocked us out for hours.   Pretty sure that would not be considered "good parenting" these days!   Smile

I am dealing with the same crap. Extra clingy, extra extra, annoying sick 4 year old. Clinging to mom. I was up ALL night. She wants to be tucked in. She wants water. She had to use the bathroom. She want to sleep on the couch. She wants mom on the couch with her. She wants me on the couch with her. She wants the tv on. She screams and whines. I’m over it. I may be annoyed and jealous because GF is attentive and affectionate towards her. Giving cuddles, love, and attention. Something I feel like I’m having to beg for lately. I’m trying to be patient but I’m over it. I feel crazy to even feel this way. She’s 4 right? But also I feel my feelings are valid.
