OK! I'm blogging again while we are in a holding pattern here on the playtime front.
My son wakes up and asks me to play with him. Simple enough.
I say, "go to the bathroom and then I will play with you." Again, simple (I think).
He adamantly refuses. He doesn't have to go. His yelling over the complete unfairness of it all woke his sister, his ally. (She doesn't have to go either!)
So the allies are playing nicely together (a minor miracle in itself) and I will play online until someone acquiesces. (Or until I have to clean the floor!)
