When snuggling with your child, you may be moved to tell them that you love them. If it happens that they are then moved to tell you to be quiet, your instinct may be to say something like, "You be quiet, jeez." or "I birthed you, dammit. Why don't you love me?". This is a normal reaction to rejection. And you are more than in the right to then hide in the kitchen and eat the last cupcake.
