I’m usually not good at resolving conflicts. In the dating environment, I would just run away. At work, we’ll try to figure out the ‘right’ way and usually the ‘right’ way wins.
With Cate, usually the only way that wins is to compromise
Last night I was trying to convince Cate to fall asleep sooner as she complain that she can’t fall asleep.
Tony: “If you fall asleep, tomorrow we’ll head to the trampoline right after breakfast”
Cate: 5 minutes later she is gone.
Tony: After the trampoline, I get to head to my favorite French restaurant, Petite Pontoise
Cate wants to head home and rest afterwards
Tony wants to walk around Sacre Cour
Cate wants to help Tony cook and film the entire session and pretend the moose and kitty finger puppets are actually cooking
Cate will be meeting her babysitter in Paris tomorrow, she falls asleep in 5 minutes after her head hits the pillows
Tony sitting in bed and staring out at the full night view of Sacre Cour, I am the luckiest guy in the world
