Very hard

I had a lot of trouble getting Veronica to sleep tonight.

She did not want me to go. SHe wanted me to hold her hand until she fell asleep. Well, she would prefer that I hold her hand and not stop. But she didn’t know what happened after she fell asleep, so I knew when the getting was good.

Anyway, I don’t like to indulge this preference of hers. I was trying to leave. I picked her up, before the meltdown, and took her to daddy in teh living room.

“She’s having a hard time. She could use help.

She said “Very hard”

It’s hard sometimes.

She did not accept the daddy substitute. I had to hold her hand til she slept.

It happens.
