I had a feeling this was an impulsive statement he made on Tuesday. And I'm glad I had not acted yet on his suggestion to invite over the boy he's complained about for four years. I've been trying to talk to him tonight about the ramifications of blurting out whatever pops in your head like this but he's very distracted. If he wasn't crawling around on the floor he was wandering around the house with ideas of a dozen other things he needed to do rather than his homework. Then when I get stern and suggest consequences for his non-compliance I get dirty looks and whining and other strange vocalizations. I'm putting him to bed an hour early tonight. He's driving me nuts.
