Who's the Captain?

My son is having one of those days....therefore so am I.

First he refused to participate in his weekly gym class that he typically loves. Go figure!

Then, he walks around all morning with an angry face.....for no specific reason that I can ascertain.

We've had a touch of spring fever here for a few days, and it's been a welcome change of pace weatherwise. However, because of that, Seth is dying to take a speed boat taxi ride from a local dock that we spent much time visiting last summer. He adores steering when the driver permits, and I'm happy he is happy and relaxed. I love boats rides and being near the water, but today just wasn't warm enough, so I couldn't indulge him.

Add that frustration to his already being moody, and it's not been a fun day with captain Seth.

Sometimes I wonder who is in control of this ship. It can be difficult at times to accept the fact that my time with Seth is either fun or not fun, depending on his state of mind. Sometimes he is very agreeable to even coming along on the simplest errand with me, and other times, like today, not much pleases him.

He wound up taking a nap, which is no doubt what he needed. So, hopefully we can all have a pleasant dinner, since we have a friend coming over tonight to join us.

As a 40+ mom, I have to say that I find it a particular challenge accepting that Seth's moods often dictate what we can and can't do. On a weekend, it's disappointing to feel stuck in the house because he needs some zzzzzzs. At this stage of my life, part of me wants to do what I want to do. Oh well.....This too shall pass, as my mom used to say. :)

I have come to accept the fact that Noa rules our house now. My husband and I were just talking about it this morning. Everything revolves around her now. Even he is just feeling like Noa's Dad instead of old self. Guess Daddy's wonder who is Captain, too!
