Raising my voice


It's the one thing I've always known I didn't want to do. I see those parents in the street shouting at their child or remembering how mum used to bellow at us, I didn't want to be like that. I mean, there must be other ways. Right?

I don't remember being yelled at by Nannies and Granddads, or neighbours and friends. But now, I'm starting to wonder if you just have a totally different dynamic with everyone else compared to your main caregiver.

You see Kairi just doesn't listen, no matter what I say she just totally ignores me. It like she just stares me straight in the face and decides not to listen and it drives me insane!

Daddy, Nanny, Auntie Vic, Friends she listens to all of them, they only have to ask her once (daddy maybe twice), but me I have to raise my voice (and most of the time she still won't listen) and it breaks my heart, because I don't want to shout. And at the end of the day, I feel like all I have done is moan at her.

It's been much harder since Naminé is here, before I had all the 1 on 1 time with her she wanted, I did everything's with her and was always praising her, but jot I feel it's always 'be careful of Naminé' 'don't stand inter sofa' 'you'll fall on nano em 'don't take that off her. 

I just wish we could have the happy times again, the times where she feels like she has my attention (which is because she does!), the times where I don't feel like I'm being a nag (which is because I'm not!) and the times where we're happy together.

I hope those times come back very soon, I love you my sweet princess. Mummy will try not to raise her voice anymore, I hope you learn to listen soon!
