December 23, 2002 - Monday
Harry's mother was home from work today and picked up the boys from their respective daycare. When she got home she brought both outside onto the driveway and both were crying. I'm not sure why, but it seemed like a good idea to go out and change the dynamic. Right away I took Harry off to the stream where he and I had been throwing sticks and watching them float over the weekend and right away he was happy. I probably spent the better part of an hour alone with Harry and, as we've been discovering with the weekend divide-and-conquer strategy, it's just amazing what a little focused one-on-one time can do to attitudes. Tonight it lasted all evening.
