We went out tonight to an indoor amusement park at a mall. We went for the mini golf, but when we got there, the temptations of the bounce house and the carousel were too great, so we did those. Then my stepson wanted to try the hurricane simulator, and we bought caramel corn. We went window shopping at the Lego Outlet and Build-a-Bear. Then we decided we'd spent enough, even if my daughter was nagging to ride the train and my stepson wanted to try the roller coaster simulator. I just took the continuing demands in stride and kept saying no till we got back to the car, and the whole thing was fun overall. But my boyfriend always gets so impatient with the clamor of demands, and he ended up in a bad mood by the time we got home, ready to take a running leap at the wall headfirst. Why can't he understand that kids will be kids and just shake it off? Is there anything I can do to make it easier for him?
