Today was my youngest's birthday. She turned 12. I was up at 3:30am so I could get up and ready to leave to pick up her friends. They were all meeting me really close so I was lucky. Picked them up, surprised her with breakfast, and then took them to school. Made a supper SHE picked out and spend WAY too much on her present (a leather motorcycle vest). She is snotty opening her present from me and daddy and doesn't even say thank you, even though she hugged her grandma for the present (that I Bought because she can't handle her freaking money) and her brother and sister for the cards (once again, that I bought). I baked her the cake SHE likes that no one else cares for.
I sit her down and tell her that it hurt my feelings that she acted like that. An hour later, I tuck her in and ask her how her birthday was. She told me it was TERRIBLE. I felt like screaming at her. All this work PLUS the huge party she got and her birthday was terrible???
I'm sorry but why am I the one who feels bad????
Normally she is very well behaved and a wonderful child.
