difficult child 1 has been trying really hard to be nice to his siblings. To the point he comes across as fake and it is grating on me. It sends my hypervigilance skyrocketing. The other kids are to young or to autistic to notice. They think it is wonderful. He hasn't been all peaches and cream though. difficult child 2 still came to me to tell me difficult child 1 was pretending to kill him. difficult child 1 has had to write several apologies to Elsie today as well. And he has taken all day to do his chores and they still aren't done yet. He keeps having to "help" his siblings with something or other.
