Dimensions are one of the mysteries that our scientist have right now, by what they are watching on the quantum level, they are almost sure that there are other dimensions other than the ones we observe and feel.

I'm glad I have a whole posse of moms who have my back on this one!

The only rule I have? I really try hard not to let her in on the feelings, unless I can do so in a way that addresses the behavior and not the child.

Although this child has an ego that's so incredibly secure that she believes I adore her every waking moment - even when she's got direct, tangible proof to the contrary.

I used to say, if my daughter had been my first child instead of my third, I'd only have had one child. I can TOTALLY relate.

Betsy, it's refreshing to hear you ask that question, can I love my child but not LIKE her?! Right now I both love AND like my two children, but a few months ago, I wasn't sure about liking one of them at all. And my stepdaughter is a whole other story! Doesn't it seem like the more spirited your kid is, the more you have these mixed feelings?! I think it's good when we can give ourselves permission to admit to "less than perfect" emotions, maybe even laugh about them. And share them with other moms who completely understand! Thank you!

AAHH!!!! Thank you for writing this. I'm sending it to my partner (Karen) immediately. My stepdaughter came out to visit us just after Christmas, and we've both been just totally shell-shocked - Cheyenne is 6 1/2 now and she has NEVER been ANYTHING like this. We've had people tell us it's the age/stage/whatever and we both understand that there's a lot of other factors too, but I can't express what a relief it is to hear from someone who's actually going through it Right Now. Thank you. Thank you.

What a refreshing post to read this morning, thank you! I had a rough night with my 2 1/2 year old last night and was feeling pretty guilty about being so upset with her. I just might have had my worst parenting night EVER! I was actuall pretty insecure about how I was feeling. Just knowing that someone else feels this way too makes me feel so much better.

I have so been there! Well, I am so THERE. I totally understand. Sometimes, we, at least I do, feel somewhat conflicted about how my kids are acting or what kind of people they are being at the moment. I hope it is normal to feel that way and it sure made me feel good to know that you have been there too.
