Im seriously about to scream....
I am sitting in my bedroom, in tears, Because Apparently, I have to be PERFECT all the damn time.
Im getting Judged by my roommate. Im MY home! Im sure I am overreacting a bit, But at this point, I just need to get this out.....
This evening, My daughter was playing, and while I was Actively engaged in what she was doing, I had my feet propped up in my recliner. My daughter (As usual, she is 4, and just like I was as a kid) decided that she wasnt getting enough attention, and literally threw herself into the floor. This happens at LEAST 6 times a day.... Its totally normal, and I did it when I was her age. she takes after me completely. However, My Roommate looks at me and said
"She is Bored out of her Mind, Maybe you should Play with her, Or Invite Another kid over."
Uhh, What? So I tell him that she is looking for extra attention, Just like I did as a kid, and she does this several times a day. I went on to say that I am going to talk to her Pediatric Therapist next week, because if she is already throwing herself in the Floor for attention, Im kindof worried about how she will act when the baby is born, and she will get less because I will have to devide my time.
He said "Really, shes bored, she has nothing to do All day except sit there and stare at you"
To which I reply "She has full time access to a computer, Tablet, Games, as many toys as she could ever want, the telephone to call/facetime whomever she wants, and the tv. Every Day. She will do this in the middle of playing. Its not Boredom, Its attention sick. When she has Full time attention, she doesnt do it."
the response? "Let me know what her therapist says. Guarantee its boredom"
WHAT. THE. F#$&.
First off, you have no right to judge me and my parenting skills. (Anyone remember how he parented his kids when they were here for 2 weeks? Oh thats right, he DIDNT. I DID) Second, I know exactly what My child is doing and why, because she is doing EXACTLY what I did at her age. and third, If you have any kind of problem, that is NOT how you bring it up to me in my home that I so GENEROUSLY allow you to live in WITHOUT PAYING RENT.
Im seriously peeved. Im sure the pregnancy isnt helping much, But this crap has to end!
