03 ¬ Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold.
I'm not a fussy person. Well I don't think so. I can usually tolerate most things and if I don't like them then I ignore them or look the other way. I try to avoid conflict because it's messy and not worth wasting time over. But there is one thing that irks me to no end. Badly enough that I have to sit here and journal about it. I can't stand it when people question me as a parent. I try not to let magazines bother me or the media either. They attack everything and I am able to dismiss it . . -- but NOT this. They were critiquing Reese and I as parents. Does this person even had children? More than likely, no.
We do not drag Ava around. She does come before our work and that's never been questioned. Because I refuse to have babysitters unless in extreme situations in which case I stick to family, but even THEN I don't like it. I feel better knowing that Ava is under my or Reese's care. I don't want other people holding her or teaching her things. I want to be that person and because I would rather have her with me and work at the same time does not make me a bad father. If anything it's something I think most should be doing.
Why am I defending myself? This is lame and I'm stopping now.
