We all have bad days, we all have moments of mass emotional explosions, we all need time to ourselves. The little ones don’t always understand that.
My daughter had gotten out of bed for the 4th time that evening. She thought it was a game. How far down the hallway can I make it before Mum or Dad sees me? Then when they do, how fast can I run back to my room before they catch me? This is an ‘game’ we play EVERY DAY!
