On the way into the house today, difficult child not only carried in his backpack from the car with-o argument, but he also offered to carry in a heavy aluminum ladder I've used for my murals, which I left out in the driveway. I have the worst cold in the world, so maybe he actually felt sorry for me. I don't know and I don't care. It's just that he did something nice with-o being asked!!!!! I know this sounds silly to some of you, but he was such a jerk over the weekend it's wonderful to see he can come through sometimes.
