It’s Settled…

My mom finally said at about 6:30 or so that she didn’t really want Jason to go up to North Dakota with them. Now, I don’t agree with part of her reason – she is worried about what people will think if he acts up, one aunt & uncle in particular because they made a comment on his behavior when we were there in July. Want to know my opinion on this? “BITE ME”. He’s nine. If he isn’t a saint, too bad. He can be a bit rambunctious at times, but he’s NINE! He was bad about listening when you would tell him to do something this summer – matter of fact, it was driving me crazy. He has been better lately, thank goodness. So I don’t think she shouldn’t take him just to make them happy. On the other hand, I want *her* to be happy and keep things as low key and calm for her as possible. Obviously, if Jason isn’t going I am not going. I was thinking about it this evening though, and I feel some closure already – I guess because when I left there on July 10 I thought of it as our last goodbye. And sad as this is, I know there will be problems among the siblings, and I don’t want to deal with it. I think my dad still wants Jason to go, but for now he is staying home and so am I. I will still probably have to do some work from home if the boss says ok, but otherwise we should be ok. I am doing a lot better tonight than I was last night. Thank you again for your well wishes.

It’s a shame that your Mom is afraid of Jason acting up. She shouldn’t be worried about pleasing others or worried what they’d think of her grandchild. Good or bad, happy or sad — he’s a kid for crying out loud!
