Sometimes

Sometimes....

I just want to get out of the house, hang out with friends, maybe go to a museum.

Sometimes....

Mr. B just wants to stay home, watch TV, and do some fun, hands on science things.

Sometimes....

Our days for wanting these things fall on the same days. Like now. Sigh...

I guess it's a good day to dig for martian rocks, build a scale model of the rover, Curiosity, and just chill at home. Though, I really did want to go to the museum. But that's our life. Sometimes, we both want different things at the same time, and it's ok to give in. I could have pulled the mom card. I could have forced him to go. And for what reason? Because I just wanted to? You know what? I'm perfectly content just sitting here at home, too. No harm done at all. All too often I see parents just force their kids because they can. I'm told I'll spoil him, or ruin him, by not putting my foot down at times like this. But am I really? Or am I showing him that I can respect his wishes at times, and teach him to respect mine, too?
