Uninvited?

28 08 2015

A niece of GM is having a naming ceremony on Saturday for her baby daughter and the mostly functional family have been invited to the late afternoon party. GM received this message when she was a work, 24 hours before the party.

“Hi GM. How are you? I’ve been meaning to speak to you about tomorrow and Little Miss, it’s been playing on my mind for a few days that it’ll be too much for her. There’s going to be loads of kids and people she doesn’t know and I’m concerned about how she may react. I know that when she’s stressed she lashes out and may become violent towards the other children and I really don’t want that for her, the other kids or you. What are your thoughts on this? Xx”

GM struggles to get beyond the intense feelings of rejection, hurt and quiet despair to formulate actual thoughts.

GM and LML ‘chat’ as they walk to the park …

“where daddy?”

“he’s gone into town LML”

“where daddy?”

“he’s gone to town sweetheart”

“where daddy?”

“where is daddy?”

“town .. where lolly?”

“nursery darling”

“where daddy?”

“daddy went to town”

“where lolly?”

“lolly is at nursery today”

“where going?”

“we’re going to the park love”

“where …”

This continues, on an anxious cycle, for the entire 20 minute walk.
