Grey is a colour. Not everything is black & white. Grey is allowed. Big gulp, so is not liking your kids. I love them all but sometimes I just don’t like them & I don’t have to. It’s okay to not like someone you love. I’m not sure my parents taught me that but boy, as a Mum, I so get it. I’m trying to teach my kids that. It’s important to understand that whilst I love them even when they’e being horrible, nasty or just down right shitty, I don’t need to like them. Nothing will make me lie to my children. Black & white isn’t a world I would choose to live in. We need grey, I need grey. I told my youngest I didn’t like him. Not because I wanted to hurt him but because only he can decide whether he cares or not. He needed to know I don’t like his crap behaviour. Not everyone is going to like every one. Nobody owes anyone an explanation.
