Earlier tonight when I was out of the house, Tom and a certain 11 year old girl came to loggerheads over something. She got angry….
Girl: That’s it! You are NOT my father! You’ll have to find a new place to live!
She then spent some time in her room, at her father’s suggestion. After nearly an hour she acquiesced and offered this by way of apology:
Girl: I’m sorry I was mean to you Dad. I still love you, but I just don’t know about this whole PARENT THING.
what’s a mother to do….???
