Disillusion

Kinda feeling at a loss for words.. I’ve never seen Lilly this upset or mad, whatever you want to call it before. She is 5 years old and to see her this frustrated/crying breaks my heart. She keeps telling me she doesn’t want to go to mommy’s anymore. She doesn’t like it there. There are a list of other things she went off on……. My jaw has hit the floor.. I’ve never wanted this kinda life for them. I never thought I would have these conversations with my children. They shouldn’t have to go through this… This isn’t the life I wanted, nor the life I wanted for my kids…. I guess I had this disillusion of the 1950’s relationship/life where everything is on the same level. If there is a problem the both of you will work it out. I thought I had that… This whole thing makes me mad and heart broken. I don’t like seeing my children like this.
But tomorrow is a new day and we can take baby steps. 

Really?

So as I was picking up my oldest from school. I found this little girl standing in the middle of the parking lot crying and lost. I guess at some point the mom picked up the little girl’s sister, packed her up in the car and drove off…. Yes.. She drove off and left this little girl there. Lucky enough we were in the school parking lot, so we went back to the main office and got her mom’s phone number.
When the mother finally showed up, she had this “whatever” attitude and didn’t say “thank you”or anything. Not even to the main office people. So she grabbed the little girl and walked outside. I then gathered up my kids and started walking out to the car. There I see the mother yelling that the little girl for getting lost.
Last I checked lady… You drove off and left her there! Didn’t have a choice in the matter. Now I’m not one to tell people how to raise their kids. But I know an idiot when I see one and I had to say something.. “Rather than yelling at your child for something she couldn’t control. Maybe you should be telling her that you love her and that your sorry. Make it up to her for YOUR mistake. Step up your game as a parent. If you can’t do that. Maybe you should take a look in the mirror and not take it out on your children for your failings.”
I’m just saying, just a thought haha. God I hate people sometimes.
