A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Mommy, me hate you.

Mommy, me hate you.

Today at the Y we were struggling to get out the door to get home for lunch. Porter decided he did not want to work as a team and get his coat on, and Jack kept screaming about wanting to stay and play. So, I finally just sat down on a bench and Porter actually came to me, but he wanted me to give him food, not put his coat on. I said I would give him something after he put his coat on. Well he did not like that idea very much and said, "Mommy, me don't like you. Mommy me hate you!" Generally I just ignore him when he says that or I say, "I'm sorry to hear that." BUT TODAY, I said, "Well Porter, sometimes I don't like you either." Which actually broke the tension between the two of us and things were fine after that. Unfortunately a woman heard me say it while she was walking out the door and started to giggle and said, "probably a little too honest, just too honest." Now, I'm assuming she was talking about me saying that to my child, but she could have been giggling about the whole conversation. I guess I will never know. I do know that I love my kids, but sometimes I feel like being honest with them about my feelings helps them understand that it is okay for them to have the feelings that they have....
