husband and difficult child were going to help easy child with some football practice today. I told the kids that their dad was putting fertilizer down on the guess, so they could all go up to elementary school to play. They would have alot more room there. difficult child announces the doesn't want to go and if they can't play here, he doesn't want to play. That part I'm not surprised about, but I tell you that because it goes into the next part of the story. Before husband puts the fertilizer down he was doing some yard work that was going to take a while. I had finished doing the things I wanted to do, so I told difficult child that if he wanted to grab his mitt, we could go out in the back yard and have a catch. This is the thinking I don't understand: he tells me no because we won't be able to play later. I replied that I wouldn't be able to play later anyway. He said that is he would rather not play at all because he can't play later. I don't get it. Why wouldn't he rather get to play than not?
