Five times this Christmas break Tony has broken something and needed immediate medical attention... preferably the E.R. or admission to a hospital room -- in his opinion of course. He'll never move that part of his body again. Long intense crying fits, filled with curse words and accusations.....
and within 20 minutes of the occurrence it's completely fine.
He's almost 14 and the screaming accusatory sobbing fits whenever he as much as stubs his toe (which is basically what happens tonight) have gotten me to the point of extreme cynicism. I can't really be sensitive and caring when he is cussing me out and throwing things at me...... and I know that the pain will be forgotten in a few minutes.
Anybody else ever feel not so nurturing?
