Moments

It's been a rough evening. Abby has been particularly whiny and grating on my nerves. After sometime of this I put my head down into my hands.

Abby: Mom. Don't cry.
ccap: Honey, it's EXHAUSTING when you're like this.
Abby: It's exhausting BEING like this.

And then, later when she sees me being slightly exasperated with Jack:

"I think it's hard being a parent. I don't think I want to be a parent."
