I dreaded coming home last night to a house without MD. He is away on business and I was going to have to be home alone with Devin and Mikayla. This did not use to be a problem when the kids were younger, but now that they are teenagers they are a little tougher to deal with.
I will have to say last night went rather well. To my surprise ........ NO ARGUMENTS. Devin actually did the homework I asked him to get done, shared the computer with Mikayla, laughed and smile. We even wrestled on the floor tickling each other. It was strange and nice at the same time. There were even no arguments about going to bed and even better no arguments or yelling about getting up in the this morning. All things were blissfully wonderful in the MD house last night!
I have no idea why Devin behaves poorly when MD is home, nothing is really different other than MD backs me up when asking Devin to do something. When Devin disagrees the war starts.
I only wish it would go this calmly every night or at least more often than not.
