I’ve faced a difficult question today.
My 5 year old came to me and asked me why his dad does not care about him. First of all, how do you even respond.
He chewed pass his nails this time and through his skin because He’s always thinking. .
When I have to leave for a little while he asks me if I’m going to come back.
I looked my baby in his eyes and said to him, I’m sorry son. I love you so much. You will always have me and I will do everything I can for you and your siblings. He gave me a hug and walked away.
My tears fell when I was alone again. How can I keep my baby from hurting like this?
My heart hurts for him tonight and I wish holding him could make all these questions, fears, and pain go away and never come back.
