My in-laws had been planning to spend a few days with my kids at their place, which is about four hours from where I live. They were all excited about seeing their grandkids. Today was the day. Well, my son had other ideas. He simply refused to go.
"I don't want to go. I'll miss my home, and I'll miss Mama," he told them.
My mother-in-law spent a lot of time trying to convince him to go. He wouldn't budge. We decided not to force the issue. They got my daughter, but not my son.
Now, I was expecting that boy to take off for the pond. I figured the whole thing was a ploy to go turtle hunting. But do you know what? The kid surprised me. He stayed home all day and played with me. He didn't even go running off to his friends's house.
What's up with that? Does this mean I might actually still be wanted? I think I'm in shock!
