easy child had his graduation on Saturday and a BIG family party today. difficult child decided that he only wanted to go to the family party. We were cool with that. He'll get to see everyone. But........he didn't show. So, as husband and I left for the airport (Dad had to go back to work), we called difficult child. Called to say that there is still an hour or so left of the party... you might want to go and see your brother. His response was that He was at a birthday party and couldn't go. My answer was "Well, enjoy your birthday party. Bye" Click. I received a text message "Why are you so rude to me?" husband's answer was to call difficult child.... where difficult child decided to tell husband that we don't include him in anything. Four calls from me about graduation and at least that many from husband and his Aunt called offering a ride... and no one includes difficult child?? husband said "I'm tired of your excuses"... which led difficult child to calll husband a Big (part of male anatomy).... Fine, whatever. We continue to the airport. When we got to the airport husband had a text waiting for him. It said..... "I hate you. I hope you are happy with your fat wife. Sister and I hate you both and want nothing to do with you. I hope you are happy with easy child because we will not be there when you are older. I hope you are happy with your pride son". This is so difficult child. He doesn't do something.....feels guilty about it..... and lashes out at everyone else. And to pull in his sister and brother into the mess is just so like him. husband has decided not to call back or respond. He's in San Diego for a long time. He'll just sit back and see if difficult child calls him. But, on the happy side of life (where we are going to focus) easy child had a great graduation, the party was fun....even for our June/january weather. (a whole whopping 58 degrees for a BBQ)... There was a lot a good times this weekend. husband got his ticket changed to a direct flight! So, difficult child can kiss our seat-end if he thinks we are going to worry about his rant. Thanks for letting me vent.
