Anyway. Apparently SS was watching scary videos all night last night at a friend's house and ended up getting picked up by BM at midnight. He told us this while eating dinner. So we told him no watching scary videos on his tablet anymore.
Well he didn't listen. He asked DH to take him back to BM's and said he heard thunder and it scared him. It is clear skies. DH told him he needed to sit in the living room and get off his tablet. We watched a movie and SS got up and said he was ready to leave. DH asked why and SS said he heard it was supposed to storm so he would rather not drive around in the rain. Where is he getting this information? I don't know. DH told him it was going to storm late tomorrow, and they would be fine. SS then proceeded to mope and whine.
DH decided to just take him to BM's. I'm annoyed because we changed plans so that DH could spend time with SS on his birthday, and he just up and caved to SS. While I get that kids want to be here or there for certain reasons, it's ridiculous that he is driving him back after four hours.
I guess the good news is I get DH to myself tonight. I just feel bad that DH wanted SS here and because he hates being the bad guy, he just brought him back.
I really hope that this weird stage is over soon. I would feel better if he was old enough to actually understand things. Especially how his dad feels. It's not like DH can say "How would you feel if I told you I want to take you home because I don't feel like having you here?"
Sometimes I wish it was more acceptable for kids to be held accountable for how they make other people feel- and not just when they hurt other kids, but their parents.
