So both boys are playing summer basketball. They have 3 tournaments and lots of practices, including practices at 6 o’clock in the morning. It was my younger son’s first time this morning, then he goes to school. So it’s a hour practice then he showers at the gym, then comes home just in time for his dad or me to take him to school. We thought we would let him try it this morning because not a lot was going on at school. Funny, as soon as he got home, he took a 3 hour nap! LOL!
What is it? I just can’t seem to be able to finish a conversation with my older son without an disagreement. It’s driving me bonkers!! I’m hoping it’s just because he is 17 years old and wants to make his own decisions.
I believe he thinks I enjoy not getting along, but I can’t stand it and yet I will stay my ground when needed. The odd thing is that my younger son watches and seems to learn from his older brothers’ mistakes. When we are having our disagreement the younger one just get really quiet and then will ask me questions after the fact. I actually asked him for his opinion yesterday just to make sure I was clear in what I was saying.
Everyday I’m asking for wisdom and guidance on how to get to the heart of the matter with both of them.
It’s a peaceful Friday night here. The older is out with his girlfriend having dinner and the younger one is spending the night with his friend, watching the Heat game. You would think they would be at home doing lsp ceramics with their mom. Actually I’m watching the Heat game also.
