I Had Time With The Kids

I spent time with the kids last Wednesday. At first it was awkward but I just acted like, and really felt like, all was ok. My son had a new Jacket and an Ipod and was trying to make it obvious to me that he had it but I didn't make a big deal of it. I don't feel it is right to punish unacceptable behavior whether it is at one house or the other.

Anyway, not much happened till dinner when my daughter brought up the subject of what happened. Luckily it did not get out of control but it is obvious my son is unhappy he does not have his xbox and no real time frame of when will get it back. Only when he brings his grades up to a B or better is what I tell him. Unless their Father will implement some substitute punishment I have in mind will I give it back. That's a subject for another day. So we ate and ran a few more errands and I took them home because there just wasn't much else to do in that little town on a dark, cold fall night.

No one was home there so I hung with the kids for a big and they seemed they didn't want me to leave. My daughter clung to me and we cried but I believe that if their Father or his fiance would have been home I would not have gotten that moment. I'll take what I can get.
