I told Kye to go downstairs and find his bathing suit so we can go to the Y tonight.
After a while he resurfaced from the dungeon and proclaimed,
"So......... Mom, I not a very good looker, you are way better at it--maybe you can find my suit".
I am not sure how much faith I have that he really tried. He did however find a game he wanted to play. So now he is playing tanagrams on the family room floor.
My dilemma is whether to encourage him to look harder or bask in his compliment :-).
I think he needs to give it one more try.
