the IT city, the I.T. Baby


October 23rd, I’m told I’m hated

The three year old has been surly. I understand Threenager now. I’ve been yelled at, kicked, cried at, and otherwise had to listen to the wailings of a kid who can’t calm down once the anger starts.

I was getting on her case about throwing things and she said she didn’t care so I doubled down and got that she hated me. That was a new one.

The 24th involved multiple unplanned underwear changes, feet stomping, and a bath that couldn’t be avoided.

Been a bad few days which are probably just going to get worse with the addition of trick or treating, dark mornings, colder weather.


I’ve also been apologized to and told that she always loves me. So there’s that.
