Where is My Car?

November 4, 2013

It seems that we are always discussing Dad’s car.  He is ready to go north and needs his car.  Explaining that the car is in his garage up north is very confusing.  How did we get here without his car??  Who is using his car up north??  Did you sell my car??  Did my son take the car??

Explaining that we don’t need the car until spring when we go up North will sometimes calm him down.  Reminding him of the snow up north may help.  But then again any explanation may make him angry.

Sometimes I can change the subject.  I take him for a walk.  We go to the store.  He helps with dinner.   Other days, he won’t let go.  Those are the worst days.

    That is so true about the variance in days as to what you can do to change the subject. Sometimes my mother gets unbelievably stubborn on one topic and all I can do is walk out of the room. Other days, all it takes is for me to point out a picture on the wall or a cloud in the sky and we’re off to a whole ‘nother conversation.
