I had posted that we had been meltdown free and jinxed it. Granted it was a relatively minor meltdown, but I could almost feel myself shutting down. Just felt instantly tired. difficult child argues with me non-stop. Everyone says "oh, that's what kids do." I know that. I have a 15 year old easy child. I do know the difference between typical teen behavior and difficult child behavior. She argues absolutely everything. It's exhausting. She uses such a nasty tone of voice, she yells, and she doesn't stop. She goes on and on and on. If I try to ignore her, she becomes more angry. If I leave the room, she follows. If I tell her to leave the room, she screams and cries and stomps and slams doors and hits and kicks the doors and walls. She was in this mode all day. After I took her and one of her friends to see Meet the Robinson's. I even let them get a drink and popcorn, which I hate to do cause it's so overpriced at the movie theaters. I finally left this evening and went walking with a friend and when I came home, difficult child was just as happy as a lark.
