Childish Revenge

Revenge ... that state we get to when things do not go the way we want.

With my son, I am learning that this is almost a daily event.

Yesterday, I got upset when he turned the computer off while I was working on it. I was more upset that the work got lost than anything else, and I am learning to manage how I respond when upset.

Patrick, on the other hand responded as you would expect a sixteen month old child to. He headed to the bookshelf and started ripping books off the shelves (I've got to move the First Edition and Signed books onto higher shelves).

Today, when I took the clicker back, another book got tossed across the room ... the one I was reading at the time (John Carter in flight) ...

I have got so much to learn.
