difficult child has been having meltdowns lately about where I put his clean laundry after I fold it. I've always placed it on his bed for him to put away, but for some reason in the last few weeks that's not what he wants. He wants me to throw it on the floor. Ummm...not going to happen. So, this morning I asked him why it was bothering him that the laundry was on the bed. He says he doesn't know, it just does. I told him that I was really not keen on the idea of putting clean laundry on the floor and did he have any ideas about where else I could put it that would work for both of us. He couldn't come up with anything so I told him to think about it. Later, after school, he asked me to come into his room (this was after a MAJOR meltdown about something totally different, so I really was not in the mood to deal with him, but I put on my happy mommy face and went anyway) and he told me that he cleared off a shelf on the book case and could I put the laundry there? YES!!! We worked it out! Maybe I'm not as bad a mother as I think I am!
