“You are the expert about your child.”
Have you ever been told this? I know I have. And after 15+ years there were times when I may have actually started to believe this. But today??
I call BULLSHIT!!!
After 15+ years in Riley World I am in awe at how I can still do things wrong. So…SO wrong!!!
Call it a weak moment.
Perhaps the amount of food and drink I have consumed this past week have overtaken any brain cells I had left.
I only know that I cracked.
More like...shattered. Under the pressure. Beyond repair. And now…
Now I will have to live with the consequences of my lapse in judgement. The side glances (because I am ignoring all eye contact with Riley), the incessant scripting, the constant questioning until the STUPID (Don’t say that word!) Beauty and the Beast Special Edition DVD arrives from Amazon that I ordered waaaaaaay before Christmas but never arrived and they are now going to ship another one on Monday and I "accidentally" told Riley that the mailman was bringing it and it should hopefully arrive by Friday because now that Christmas is over in Riley World he started making his birthday list on December 26th and I...just...couldn’t...take him talking about his birthday wish list since his birthday is still 5-1/2 months away every single time I saw him. Every. Single. Time. *sobbing*
|The DVD in question.|
After 15+ years in Riley World you want to know who the expert is?? Riley. :D
