I feel like a may jinx myself by saying this, but is appears that difficult child is doing a little better. She actually got up on her own on Saturday and Sunday. And it was before noon on both days. I know for some parents that would be crazy, but for difficult child it is a huge leap. And, I heard her laughing with easy child yesterday. A real laugh, not a forced fake one. It brought tears to my eyes. I think finally getting rid of those 2 classes has helped. And, as weird as it sounds, I think being away from IOP has helped as well. While I liked having the therapists right there, and having her see them 3x week, I think being with the other teens and their issues was becoming too much. We are dealing with some anxiety and frustration right now. We put in an application to adopt a horse, and she is super worried that we will not be approved. And, she of course already told everyone that the horse was hers. So, she was super cranky last night, and a little snappy with me. I talked to her, and she calmed down, and then asked me to tuck her in and sing to her. (Major anxiety) So, I did, and she went right to sleep and woke up in a great mood, and went to school without an argument, and was ready early enough to have pancakes for breakfast. Fingers crossed that this trend continues. I sure miss my happy girl.
