      • this means that for the rest of the week, there will be no more over nights and unfortunately for him his family won’t be able to provide him transportation to and from the place he rented so he won’t be back this vacation until this weekend

        • he went up stairs to throw a tantrum and then was put off that no one went up there to witness it
          • I was up there to start with, but when he got going I told him that he was free to be miserable and miss out on all the fun if he wanted and I went down stairs
            • you want to punish yourself? knock yourself out
            • told everyone to ignore it, don’t feed into that beast

          • and my son doesn’t see that right now because my son doesn’t like my dad’s rules so they don’t get along right now anyway
