Mature

Your six year old is more mature than you are. She has a better grip on reality too. Of course, she’s not eating prescription antidepressants like they were Skittles, and washing them down with vodka from a plastic bottle. Just because the pharmacist gives you 60 pills at a time, that doesn’t mean you can swallow them all at once. It’s too late to try to convince me you’re fit to take care of your daughter. When we asked you where she was, and you said, “I don’t know, but I’m sure she’s fine,” I lost my faith in your parenting skills. Congratulations, your daughter has to spend her birthday with a family she’s never met before. One thing I can guarantee you, she will be safer this weekend than she’s ever been in her short life.
