difficult child 2 was with us at a restaurant tonight when out of the blue he stood up and said "C'mere Mom, I wanna show you something!" and disappeared around the corner. At first, it didn't register with me that he'd left the table because I was talking to husband and the other two were making noise. Then suddenly I had this weird panicky feeling and jumped to my feet and raced around the corner. difficult child 2 had left the building and was in the front courtyard of the restaurant -- he had climbed to the top of an 8 foot wall and was proceeding upward attempting to scale the 12 foot high archway over the entrance!!! He was very happy about his little trick and thought I would be amused -- of course I was hysterical and yelled at him to get down immediately while patrons were walking by looking concerned... And staff was peering out the window of the front door to see what was going on. husband was about ready to flip out over this, so I took the opportunity to underscore how important it is that we -- HE -- realize that difficult child 2 cannot control himself, and we need to treat him like he's a 2yo again with regard to supervision and safety, otherwise someone's going to get hurt. We also cannot get sooo angry with him, as hard as it is not to, because he cannot control himself right now. Period. husband volunteered to take difficult child 2 home to spend some time with him (we arrived separately) so the other kids and I could finish our meal, and that was very good of him and tells me his (husband) Paxil is working. When we got home, they were out back playing in the pool together.
