It's hard to be good when you feel yucky

I think I've figured out a bit of why Tennyson has been so quick to go to tantrum land lately. He's had a pretty good cold for a week or so and now his ears are hurting.

I know I have struggle to be pleasant I am not feeling well. It's understandable, although still not acceptable, that he would be very frustrated when I tell him it's time to stop doing something that has been distracting  him from how yucky he feels.  It helps with developing a game plan that will work for everyone. Poor Tennyson.

I'm always so grateful for tender mercies of insight like this.
