Tales of Parenthood

Thursday evening I was in a bitchy mood and when I'm in a bitchy mood I pretty much take it out on everyone. Yes, high maintenance that's me.

Duncan was getting really whiny about Cal climbing on him and after about thirty minutes of whining and yelling between the two of them I snapped and let Duncan have it. Being my son, he has a bit of a mouth on him and he smart-mouthed back at me. I did the mom thing and sent him to his room. Power!

He comes back out approximately thirty minutes later with an envelope and a chinese lantern type thing he made in school. He hands them to me and leaves. Oh, he's looking really contrite and sad while he does it too.

On the outside of the envelope is written:
To: Mom
From: Duncan
I'm Sorry
I open the envelope and find a note and a dollar. Here's the note:
Dear Mom, I'm sorry that I miss talked to you Mother. I should not have done that. and to apoligise I giv one doller. my chineys wind sock and I'm sory I'm sory I'm sory I'm sory I'm sory
Breaks your heart, doesn't it? All was well after that and I apologized too for being so bitchy. He even said, "Why are you apologizing? I was the one who talked back?" I explained that I was not in a good mood and shouldn't have taken it out on him. I gave him back his doller and chineys wind sock too telling him they weren't necessary for the apology that the letter and a hug were enough. Yep, power.
