Daddy is drinking and Mommy is mad

How a child views your drinking……

Daddy is sleeping late today because it is Saturday, his day off. I can’t wait for him to see my dance costume. Mommy says I can’t wake him up though, I have to wait and for me to go outside and play.

I hear Daddy coming down the hall and I run to him, Daddy are you ready to see me dance. He says he has a headache and doesn’t feel good. He needs some coffee and he will feel better. Mommy is in the kitchen and the sink makes that gurgle sound again. She tells Daddy he needs to fix it. He yells he will do it tomorrow. He is going to a football game today with friends.

I run into the room and ask Daddy if he has time to see me dance before he has to leave and he says sure. I run and get dressed in my tutu. I yell for Daddy to come watch me and then I start dancing. He isn’t watching me, he is rubbing his head and Mommy is yelling at him. He can’t go to the game, he needs to do stuff around the house.

Daddy jumps up from the chair, grabs his keys and runs out the door and slams it shut. Mommy starts crying. I don’t know what to do, run after Daddy or make Mommy feel better. I go to Mommy and tell her I’m sorry and ask why Daddy is like that. She says he loves me, he works hard and just needs time with his friends. We spend the day together, Mommy and me. I don’t see Daddy before I go to bed.
