Nothing can prepare you for the day your daughter tells you she doesn’t love you. Since before she was born, I did everything I could to avoid this day. I gave her a beautiful name, breastfed her, and continue to give her all of the love, attention, and cuddles she desires.
I thought maybe some day (maybe when she’s 14 or 15), we’d get into a tiff. And she’d get so angry with me because I wouldn’t let her pierce her naval.
“It’s my body!” she’d scream at me with tears in her eyes. She’d turn on her heels and run to her room feeling defeated and full of anger.
