We’re home and Tommy is screaming at us. Doug is insisting that Tommy go get the tools he left outside. Tommy doesn’t want to go back outside. “I am NOT going back outside today! I can’t stand the bugs and I am not going back out. I’ll do it tomorrow and that’s it. You don’t love me. It’s my life and you shouldn’t be allowed to tell people how to live their life. Sigh. I guess I’ll have to be really fast when I go outside. I’m sorry Mom. I just didn’t want to go out. I shouldn’t have said that stuff. I’m gong to look for bug spray.” All this in one breath as he went from total rage to calm and content. My life is a never-ending roller coaster.
