Why is it that the day that I NEED to write my son decides all his toys are boring? Ok well he thinks that every day, but today it happens with tears.
Tears because his legos aren't fun.
Tears because he played with his cars yesterday.
Tears because he doesn't want to color.
So I said to him, "Well if you don't like your toys that much, I am going to call Santa and tell him he doesn't need to bring you any toys this year because you don't like them."
"But I do want new toys for Christmas!"
So I say, "Then show me you enjoy playing with them!"
It didn't work.
Should I resort to TV to get my work done? I really don't like resorting to the TV.
I decide to compromise.
"If you go play with your toys for a half hour you can watch TV for a half hour." I said.
So he comes in my room 2 minutes later and says, "Look, I made this yesterday." as he holds up a lego car.
Seriously. I don't want to know what he did yesterday! I want him to play with his toys today!
Why didn't I send him to preschool this year again?
