Snow day today because of the unexpected snow fall from the Nor'easter. We were supposed to get a dusting. We got a little more than three inches and our district closed because of hazardous road conditions. It's only 10:00 am and difficult child has been going since 7:00 am! He wanted to go out and play in the snow. I told him to wait until 9. He kept bothering me. I walked into my room to make my bed and I closed the door on him. husband asked what was going on and I told him. He asked me why I was not letting him go. Really, what this the fight I wanted to pick? (deciding which fight to pick has always been one of my biggest problems). I thought about it and I decided that husband was right, so I let difficult child go outside. easy child then decided that he wanted to go out. I went out in the back with them so I cold shovel the deck so we could open the door. All of a sudden easy child said he wanted to go inside because his stomach was hurting. difficult child was all over him. "You're such a wimp. Just stay out with me and play. Why do you have to ruin everything for me? You only think about yourself." I told difficult child that if he wanted to stay out he could. No one was forcing him to come inside, but he refused because it was "no fun" without someone else out there with him. Now he's bored. His Xbox isn't working, and he's bored of the games on the computer. He has nothing to do. Then he asked how easy child was feeling. I told him that he seemed to be feeling better. I think the problem was that he was just hungry and after he had a cup of broth he seemed to be feeling better. That started him all over again! "Why does easy child get something to eat? Why can't I have lunch? You give easy child EVERYTHING!!" I told him that easy child didn't get lunch. He got a cup of broth to see if that would settle his stomach. If he wanted some broth I would be more than happy to make it for him. "NO! Broth is DISGUSTING!!" Oh, good Lord! It's going to be a looonnnggg day.
