    Unhappy Heard my frist " I don't love you mommy"

    She had a rough evening, starting with breaking ornaments on the tree.. then go straight downhill from there. I finally just gave up , warned that she had ONE more chance , then I was putting her in bed early. A couple minutes pass and she decides to get up, and pour her apple juice on my carpet.
    (have never seen her behave this way, I honestly think she was just really tired and grumpy)

    BED TIME.

    So I put her in bed explain she won't be getting out (this is about 40 min early). She throws a fit, once she calms down a little I hear " come say good night to me mommy". I walk in say goodnight , I love you, and what do I hear back " I don't love you mommy, your mean", She rolls over and goes to sleep.



    Got alcohol?

    Ah, I'm sorry! I don't look forward to the day I hear that too. Just remember she doesn't mean it and you're most likely right, she is tired and grumpy. We all say things we don't mean, children included.

    Hugs Mama

    (Hugs) They sure know how to crush our hearts!

    J never tells us that he doesn't love us. Instead he has always said “Why do you hate me??“. Which makes us feel so horrible.

    Big hugs, mama! I think we all hear it eventually. David has told me he hates me before...she'll probably be a whole new girl in the morning.

    Oh man Hep, that's a heart breaker for sure Obviously she doesn't mean it and likely doesn't know just how much it hurts to hear those words. We all say hurtful things when we're young, right?

    Aw Hep...Jake says it all the time, I've becomed accustomed to hearing it. Sometimes, it breaks your heart but others you know they're just trying to express their feelings.

    Doesn't make the first time any less painful, but you know she loves you. *hugs*

    When they say your mean, it just means your doing a good job as a parent, IMO.

    Oh I've heard that one! She went thru a phase of it at 3/4ish.

    I responded with the syrupy sweet 'Sometimes you may feel you dont love me, but I will always love you.' Very satisfying because it's the 'good mother' response but you're also telling the little buggers that you dont really care and you know they will get over it. Bwahaha.

    Sometimes I would beg in a semi joking voice, 'M! Please! Can we talk about this?' Made her kind of laugh and she would say 'No!' all satisfied, and it made me laugh too. Cracked somebody up in the Quarter Master one day also.

    I know how you feel. My DD2 told me a few days ago “You are breaking my dreams!“

    Which I take to mean I am making her very very sad.

    She doesn't mean it.

    ((((HUGS))))

    You know she loves you more then anyone else. You did the right thing following through and you know....studies do say that parents who set rules and boundaries have children who are closer to their parents.

    Doesn't make it hurt any less. I have no doubt she'll have a new tune tomorrow.
