My daughter hit me today.
Right in the face. Knocked my glasses clean off.
It’s the first time she’s hit me since we started the diet. We’ve been off it for about a month.
At home, when I am shopping and preparing food, we still follow it. But when we’re out and about, or she’s with other people, or my husband is shopping, we don’t.
I know it’s not necessarily related. She’s tired. It’s the first day back at school after a long break. Vision therapy makes afternoons challenging. I understand that correlation isn’t causation.
And yet… we’ve been off the diet for a month, and my daughter hit me today.
Sometimes you don’t realize how strong a force hope is, until it starts slipping away.
