My SD is sweet and loving and caring and optimistic. She has had behavioral issues (defacating and urinating on herself, lying, extreme attention-seeking behaviors), but I know that it stems from her parenting and I really don't blame her for it. I know logically that her birth is not her fault. I know rationally that she has done nothing wrong. Sure, she's snuck snacks and used my makeup and lied about it- that's annoying, but typical for a kid! She hasn't done anything that's atypical for an 8yo kid. Honestly compared to most kids she's truly amazing.
This post was a comment I made on another blog post.
I am super annoyed with my DH and have a massive tension headache migraine. Today while we are in the middle of a project at home he says out of the blue that his DD and GKids are visiting our area for the day. They live several hours away. The GKids want to come by and see our dogs.
