Life is Hard When You're Six
The world was unkind to my daughter this morning.
She was forced to take a shower.
Her hairbrush went missing... again.
The cereal she was served was disgusting.
The orange juice was too warm.
The milk was too cold.
She remembered that popcorn chicken day at the school cafeteria was yesterday.
The straw that broke the camel's back wasn't the strange discovery of her toothbrush in the cats' water bowl, but my refusal to let her brush her teeth with it afterward.
Life is hard when you're going through pre-pre puberty.
