No Surprise

Daughter announced last night that she's not going with me today. She's staying here and going to the gift shop. She can't leave her friends. She belongs here. I asked her to find the list of reasons to stay and reasons to go that she'd written with Therapist. She refused. I knew it wasn't an argument I was going to win, so I just held her. She stayed attached to me for a while.
I chose not to argue with her. I know and she knows that she can't stay home. Having voiced her protest yesterday my prediction is that today she'll wake up eager to go and be very helpful as I gather the things that I need to take with us. I hope my prediction is accurate.
