parenting is hard
Parenting is weird. Had a particularly rough afternoon/evening with the 6yo. Just, like, 0 listening and no awareness of the context of the family, which is no less hard for how perfectly developmentally appropriate it is.
Bed time culminated in a giant fit so my wife took the 6yo to bed and I went with the 9yo. Had a bit of a cry, then, because I was so tired emotionally and physically and all I wanted was to read The Hobbit to my kids.
