When my youngest child calls those words at me down the stairs - my inner response is usually one of irritation, or anger or resignation.
But if that is what you're thinking, you probably don't have a kid with the gaping holes in her attachment like mine has.
At least, I think it is mostly the attachment troubles that are at the root of most of her manipulative behaviours.
For my daughter, the good morning almost never seems to be a genuine greeting. More, it is a throwing down of a gauntlet. Sometimes I get the sense that she is angry or annoyed that I am up and downstairs, possibly spending time with someone other than her.
A big chunk of it could be all in my head too - I know that and I want to work on it some more except that sometimes I also just don't want to have too.
Deeply moving and thoughtful post, huh?
