I Feel Guilty That I Don't Feel So Guilty
David had a really, really bad Autism weekend. We managed to see a movie in between his tantrums and outbursts (thank goodness he behaved there) but other than that, it was pretty awful. Anna had friends over most of the weekend, which was a godsend since it kept her busy. That left me free to deal with David repeatedly ignoring me, screaming uncontrollably, throwing toys, punching walls, kicking the cat and slamming me in the head with a Lego set hard enough to make my scalp bleed.
Yesterday, they were off from school and it was a work holiday for Peter but not for me. He decided he'd take the kids Sunday night and all day yesterday, returning them to me this morning.
Oh, thank God.
By Sunday night, I was just wrung out. Thank goodness I'm not much of a drinking woman, because this weekend could have driven me to drain a bottle or two, let me tell you. By the time Peter showed up, I was ready to tie a bow around David's neck and say "Here! He's all yours!!" I needed a break, and I needed it badly. I kissed the kids goodbye, shut the door with ill-concealed glee and sank into my couch with a mug of hot cocoa to mindlessly watch Food Network for the rest of the night. Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.
I feel kind of guilty that I was so glad to have them go. These are my kids. I should be treasuring every single minute with them, I know. But the truth is that being a special needs Mom is hard sometimes. In fact, it's just plaintoohard sometimes and you have to have a break. I took mine and I feel a million percent better for having had it.
Except for when I feel guilty, of course.
