We're back home and I thought I would update you on difficult child's behavior at the visitation and funeral. The visitation was on Thursday evening. Inside of the funeral home difficult child was very appropriate. At one point he went outside with our permission to play games (on his gameboy). We were all impressed that he did so well. However, we found out later he was really bothering my niece's husband outside instead of playing games. My one sister in law was very upset about it. We weren't thrilled but actually thought for difficult child he did better than expected. When he was bothering the husband it was difficult child's way of "having fun" because he loves the guy. However, for difficult child that means constant bothering and play punching etc... At the funeral things started out fine. Mostly in the first pew was husband's mom and children. One niece, who was delivering the eulogy, and me (I was doing the readings) also sat in the front pew with them. After about 1/2 of the Mass difficult child decided to join us. He was very fidgety, rude, and talkative but at least did all of that in a somewhat quiet mode. At that point I thought about taking him out but husband figured he was cause a bigger scene while we took him out and he was probably right. Overall, things went better than we expected, not great but not horrible. He decided to save the horrible stuff for this morning-argh-enough said for now.
