Change in dynamics

First off, I have been texting and talking with Boy Oneder this morning and although last night was a rough one, he is feeling better today. His throat still hurts, but he says it's more bearable now.

Aside from worrying about my boy for the last 2.5 days, I have noticed something very strange...

The house is a calm and quiet place. The weirdest thing about that is that Boy Oneder is by far, the easiest child. He is quiet and self-sufficient and he is such a great help with Threepeat. So why is it that things are so much BETTER here without him? Don't get me wrong, I love that boy dearly and have missed him to pieces, but the family dynamics have changed and it is just so different. I would have thought that having Middleman or Threepeat out of the house for a few days would have made a HUGE difference, and that having Boy Oneder gone would be, if anything, more difficult...but it's not! LOL Middleman and Threepeat are usually at each others' throats, while Boy Oneder is the laid back one, but since he's been gone, Threepeat and Middleman have not fought ONCE. There is harmony and peace in the house.

I know, it sounds awful, but it's true. I wonder if any of you have ever had a kid go away and noticed a difference in the house?

I miss him and can't wait to have him back tomorrow, but if I could bottle up this tranquility and save it for his return, it would be fantastic!! Pin It

My next sentence was "Don't get me wrong, I love that boy dearly and have missed him to pieces, but the family dynamics have changed and it is just so different."

You know what I meant Kate.
