squeeze them till their heads pop off??? I swear.......you can't say anything to or around difficult child without him arguing about it in some way. Last week he got 3 stitches in his finger. The next day, he somehow ripped one and flat out told me that he just pulled it out. Ok fine. Tonight, instead of taking him back to the ER to have 2 whole stitches taken out, I just did it myself. (Between difficult child and husband, I have quite the collection of suture removal kits.) husband wasn't home when I did it and when he got home, difficult child told him that he got his stitches out and that I had done it. husband made some comment about it and I replied by saying that there were only two and it was no big deal, blah blah blah. I then made the mistake of commenting on how difficult child had ripped one (accidentally was implied but obviously I should have said it)and had already pulled it out. difficult child immediately went into denial mode. "I didn't rip it, something else did...it fell out on it's own...blah blah blah blah blah" When I replied that I was only repeating what he had told me, he denied THAT and got mad and stomped off saying that he wasn't going to argue about it. Excuse me??? YOU started the whole thing, you dufus! How convoluted is it that you refuse to argue an argument that YOU started!!!
