    difficult child managed to get to school on time for 3 days in a row, and then we had the holiday break. And, now I am super stressed out that tomorrow is going to be back to square one. And, I just do not want to deal with it at all. I am being selfish. I just want normal mornings were she doesn't putz and sabotage herself.

    Oh, and she is back in a wrist splint. We went to the ER today, and they think she may have a hairline fracture. So, she is in a bad mood. Ugh. Here is hoping for a great morning. Holding my breath.

    I dread the school morning after a holiday too. I said can you please just get up and go to school tomorrow but it won't happen. There will be begging and crying and crawling and kicking of walls and banging of chairs ... me begging, him crying and crawling around and banging stuff. I wish we had other options for schools that understood these kids.

    I'm sending good thoughts for a stress free morning. I hope that it goes okay for both of you.

    Remember what we told you last week. If you can get her in the car and she refuses to walk into the building, call the guidance counselor and have her escorted into the building. If she refuses to leave the house call the school and see if they can send a truancy officer over to collect her and bring her to school. I know this is stressful, but you have to be strong.

    Not selfish at all! I think it's perfectly reasonable to want a nice normal morning. For all our issues I guess I'm grateful that q would rather keep his school routine than even stay home to watch his precious sports! Lord help me if he is sick though. He just hates to miss the bus. Would be nice if there was a happy medium!
    Hope this morning is going well. Looking forward to your update!

    This morning went pretty well. She was ready on time, and didn't put up much of a fight. Was dragging in the morning, but that is more typical teen. I did have to pick her up during her last period this afternoon. She said her wrist was really hurting her. And, all she has then is her online history class. We go to the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow. I am hoping it is nothing major. Although she says it hurts more this time than when she broke it back in March.

    Great. Man, I hope her wrist is nothing too serious too. It's bad for any kid but some of our g'sfg can be totally thrown off all around with things like that.

    Buddy, I can already tell she is in a funk. She has been a little snappish, and just blah. And, whiny. I think the whiny is what grates me the most. Whines that her wrist hurts. OK, then ice it. "I don't want to. It doesn't work" -because you need to leave it on there for more than 5 minutes. So, then I say, take some ibuprofen. "It doesn't help"- Well, no when you only take 2 a day, it isn't going to do much. Sigh. I have never been able to tolerate whining. I think difficult child is resigned to getting a cast. I asked her what color she would get, and she said neon green like last time. (because that is what the horse would recognize.!?)
    I just wish she were more of a talker. easy child will chat your ear off as to what is wrong. Not difficult child. Here is for good news tmrw.
