Backtrack

there are times when i wish i have not been a mother. as a mother i suck. i don't know how to pacify my daughter. to the point, she now raises her fists to me. she no longer says 'i love you'. no longer makes drawings of hearts, or mommy and daughter together. perhaps it is wrong to say 'my'. it is just wrong to possess her this way. better not expect.  i do not deserve anything.
