OMG, NO! difficult child actually called me and H to ask if Monkeyboy could come "tay with us for a few days". I was so thrown off that I asked why! In the background I can hear MB crying and yelling into the phone how "Messed up his family is", meanwhile his mother is saying, "No, no"....it was pure havoc. I was stunned and had to hang up and call her back. Of course, the answer was no, but can you even believe it? H went from 1 to 10 in an instant listing all the reasons why NO was the answer. My God, it felt good to be on the same page. Then my friend called me and told me that difficult child called her and BEGGED to stay there with MB. Can you just believe the gall of this girl?? I am appalled and soooOOOoooo glad that my friend didn't miss a beat and said, "No way". Her daughter is the same age and a friend of difficult children, so difficult child was appealing to her to ask her mother (my friend). Whew. What a mess. I am still wondering if difficult child will even come home tonight. But you know what? I'm freaking tired and don't really care at this point. I'm going to bed. It's been a long day.
