I hate you Mommy
My son only said those words to me once. You would think I would be crushed and end up a sobbing mess at the sting of those words.
He was somewhere around 5 years old and at that selfish stage, when kids think they are always right and that parents are there to serve.
I’m not sure what started the argument, but I remember him stamping his foot, pointing his finger at me and with venom spitting out the words.. “I hate you Mommy”.
