myself by writing a good post about easy child. I am very excited for her that she made cheerleading but this morning her attitude left me very hurt. She was running late (as usual) and got upset that I reminded her (nicely) about the time. She had a major attitude. Since we got near her school at 7:30 (the latest time I like to get her there), I decided to drop her off at the gas station on the corner. She demanded I take her to school. I told her with that attitude I was not driving her to school. She had to walk less than a block and a half. She complained it was too cold (it was chilly-30 degrees but she knows the drill about leaving on time). She screamed at me that I should just head towards my school. I said fine she could walk from there (about 3 miles) and started off. She said she wouldn't go to school. I told her choice but if she gets kicked off of cheerleading for unexcused absences not my problem. She yelled for me to stop so I pulled in at a Panera kiddie corner from the gas station (obviously I hadn't gotten far). I told her she could walk from there. She flipped out! Yelling, screaming and saying horrible things. Then she started kicking the back of my seat repeatedly. I told her in a bit I would be starting off for my school and wasn't turning around. She then yelled that I was the worst mother ever (I'm used to this from difficult child and her once in awhile) but then she said she doesn't know why she was ever put with me and wished her birth mother hadn't picked me for her mom. She slammed the door and took off. I refused to let her see how hurt I was. It broke my heart but no way would I let her know that. She really didn't have far to walk (she sometimes walks there for lunch) but I felt like she was trying to bully me into taking her with all of her hateful language. I refused to be bullied but it did hurt. At least she didn't see my tears. Thanks for listening, I needed to get this out. I'm not sure how to respond to her when she gets home this evening.
