Today at the bowling alley, difficult child thanked me for getting cheese curds for him. I replied, "Well, sometimes I am a good mommy." He said that 95% of the time I am a good mom. I am pretty sure it is a lot less than that but o.k. Tonight, it is 9:30, he should be sleeping. Instead? He is demanding that I go get him a snack because he is hungry. I told him when I was 12 I was making supper for 6 people, he can surely handle getting himself a snack. He is old enough to find snacks on his own. I believe in an open kitchen - if you are hungry, do something about it. He is about ready to call Child Protection (if he knew there was such a thing) on me for not feeding him. In his anger, he kicked in the air and hit his toe on the door frame. Seems like that is my fault for injuring him and causing him to "bleed like crazy". Now I am suppose to get him a snack because I injured him. Not going to happen! Wonder how long 5% lasts? Probably until he falls asleep!
