“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or a duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift." Kate DiCamillo

My son wanted to do something.
I told him we definitely, absolutely weren't going to do that thing today.
And maybe we weren't going to do that thing for a very long time.
And then we went out for a while.
And we did the thing
that I said we were
not going to do.
And now he is out telling his friends what we did.
And I am at home thinking
"How in the heck did that happen?"
I think I made a huge mistake.
I hope I am not going to be paying for it for the next three years.

Probably you will. They NEVER forget! The joys of parenthood in action.
It doesn't matter the age of our children we still get talked into things.
Sometimes they have a way to get you to do the thing you don't want to do. It's ok. We've all done it. :)
"How in the heck did that happen?" We have all asked ourselves that question. Parenting is a challenge.
Not ever doing is a sure sign that you will be doing. Try to stand firm and say perhaps, someday. Loved your ending, but I hope it doesn't happen.
I enjoyed our little visit yesterday, & think I know that "little thing". Hope it doesn't turn into a big thing for you, Carol.
Oh boy. Parenting isn't easy. Hope all ends well!
