If I describe my moods, I might sound like the child: Difficult, defiant, quick to lose temper, sometimes inconsolably sad, often jumpingly happy, withdrawn, outgoing, inconsistent.
I’m a contradiction come alive. I can change as quickly as the weather in fall, and then change back again, and then off again. Like a child.
The trouble is, and it’s more trouble for my wife than for me, we already have a child. We need to be stable and consistent to help mold our daughter’s character and behavior.
