Today Tigger tried to manipulate me into taking him to Kmart by saying he would cut himself if I didn't do it. He had just had an altercation with some young teens and was edgy and nursing hurt feelings. I wasn't worried cause we were in the van and all he had was a plastic knife and fork from McDs. Eeyore tried to get out of doing homework by saying he needed to go to the hospital. When I started packing up his homework to come with, cause after all you wait for hours in the ER and we needed something to do , he 'changed his mind' I am grateful for the calmer house with Kanga gone and the boys making huge progress, but I still really, really hate parenting difficult children.
