Middle Boy has now flopped himself on the floor outside the door to my room.  He is holding Sophie and crying. 

She keeps running into my room/he chases her there.

I asked him if he needed something, because he keeps coming in my room. 

He asked why I was kind to him when he wasn't kind to me.  Why did I want a hug after we fight? 

I asked him what he thinks making up from an argument looks like.  How should it work?  What does it look like?  I told him we could make up from a fight in whatever way he thought it should be.

He had NO IDEA.  He said he had never seen anyone apologize after an argument so he didn't know.

I told him to think about it and let me know.

He said he was sorry he hurt me and he said all of those unkind words.  I forgave him.

Prayers for forgiveness and learning.  Wisdom and grace.  Mercy and loving like Jesus loves us.
