Can you see it? That tiny lump on the finger that is creating so much fuss and drama in our little household? No, I’m having trouble seeing it too. But it’s there requiring my full attention just around dinner time when multitasking is at its peak. Funny, we had spent the day with friends at the beach and it was hardly mentioned.
But that’s only the fingertip on the iceberg. Daily there are invisible bruises that generate volumes of homework procrastination and require much attention. Bright pink bandaids are applied to scratches that don’t exist because I asked for the bedroom to be cleaned. And if there is a chance of stern words because my poppet has been naughty, no doubt an ailment will appear that needs a kiss.
It’s sweet but sometimes they just need to toughen up … ‘Darling, it’s only a flesh wound!’
Does your child find imaginary sores that require much love and attention?
