|That's me, but with a laptop.|
So it is that we have spoken about the lack of consistency we show to our children, how much they are prone to break and not respect their own property (still more than other children I have observed, but still too much for my own sensibilities). And I pointed out the lack of consistency from my wife. She has concurred and that is something else to work on.
|Kinda like this, I guess.|
You know, I can't find images of children
interrupting parents' conversing...
Now, take the initial guilt and bad feeling that I felt from a complete stranger telling me to "get lost bitch" (kind of her to use a female slur) and apply that to the situation with our children and you see my own difficulties in making a change. Take the anxiety of the Boy and realise that it comes from Tilly and you begin to see the size of the task before us. And also why things take so long and have yet to make a real positive difference. It might also explain why we are in a sexless marriage and why this is likely to continue for some time yet despite the break, for guilt(?), in January this year. We've hit seven months without anything sexual, a week with kissing being part of any routine at all (and even then we can go a day or two without) and almost seven years since we actually had what most people would consider normal sexual relations. We have a mountain to climb.
