Parenting is a struggle. It's been hard for me at every stage, from one kid through the fourth. The fourth is just an extreme challenge right now. Everything turns into a screaming tantrum. And it goes on and on. She is currently on the floor screaming for who knows what reason. This morning is was a fit at the grocery store because she wanted to eat all the oranges and I said no.
Yesterday we found out that her processor wasn't working. No idea how long it had been that way, which is my fault for not checking more frequently. So now she is freaked out by the sound all over again and is fighting wearing it. That's right, people. It's not all sunshine and roses when you get a cochlear implant. It's hard work.
My other girls have also been exerting their strong wills lately. Seriously, I don't think I will survive parenting with my sanity intact. I guess it's payback from my childhood. Sorry, Mom and Dad. I know I wasn't a very easy kid either.
I know that I will have a good day again sometime. I'm sure of it. Sometimes life is just hard.
