You’re Right Baby, It’s Not Fair

It was emotional.

For both of us.

For the first time in her 4 years, my daughter cried because I couldn’t play with her because of my arthritis. I knew this day would come, when she became more aware of my condition and how it was so unfair.

She wanted to play. I couldn’t.

My shoulder had been strapped up for two days and I was in agony and had to go to bed, with her dad at home to guide the ship. But my girl always wants her mum. She has slowly gradually learned about the word ‘Arthritis’ over the last year. I’m her mum and she knows I get sore legs sometimes. She always hugs me and is so amazing and gentle.

But today was a little bit different.
