difficult child had a sleepover at his Gram's last night. This morning I asked easy child if he wanted to go to sport camp today and he was all over that. So, he got himself ready to go. He'll be there from 9 - 3. difficult child comes home from mother in law's house in a really good mood. I showed me this game that he's trying to create on his computer (which I have to say, I was really impressed with. Alot of thought went into it) and while he was showing me I was asking questions about it. Some times he would answer with, "You know Mom, that's a good idea," so we made a list of things that he wanted to change in his game. We spent about an hour doing this. He had lunch, I had lunch, I watched a something that I had recorded on the DVR, and then I asked him if he wanted to go and get some ice cream. I thought that would be a nice mom/difficult child thing to do. We go to the bank first and then hit Baskin Robbins. We're eating our ice cream there and talking about whatever comes to mind. We were almost done and I suggested that we get some ice cream to bring home for easy child. I could tell that he didn't like the idea, but my thinking was that it's something that I would do it it were easy child with me and difficult child was somewhere else. I get easy child's ice cream, but difficult child refused to wait in Baskin Robbins with me. He insisted that he go to the car, which I was fine with. We're driving home and he said something about mom/difficult child time and I said to him that I just took him for ice cream/ Didn't that count as mom/difficult child time? He replied that the only reason I took him was so that I could get ice cream for easy child. Never mind the three containers of ice cream that easy child can have at any time. Nope. I took difficult child for ice cream so that I could ice cream for easy child. Sigh. Even when I try I end up making a mess of things.
