Some days I wish I could just hide away. Who to start with? easy child or difficult child? I guess difficult child first. He is being a pain in math at school. I had to laugh because the teacher he has for that class isn't really very good at all. She doesn't get it. She leaves a message that we should tell difficult child to come to math ready to learn. Ummm, yeah I'll get right on that! Sheesh, if it were only that easy. On the way home he was so mad at me he told me he wasn't going to talk to me for two days. All I could think of is please live up to that promise. Of course, true to form, not even a minute later he is asking me questions. Then he was really upset about a consequence I gave him and he came over to the dinner table to tell me when he turns 13 he is going to kill me. It's not the first death threat ever but it's always a bit unsettling. Now on to easy child. I feel so bad for her right now. She has a good friend who is a boy who suddenly is mad and stopped talking to her. Also she thinks her supposed boyfriend has a part in spreading some rumors about her that aren't true. Unfortunately husband found this all out when he picked her up yesterday and she was crying. She asked him to not tell me so I have been trying to act like I don't know. He told me not to betray her confidence but he is concerned and felt I should know. She just layed in bed last night and after school today. She hasn't done any homework. She was going to skip cheering the game because her supposed boyfriend is one of the cheerleaders. We told her she had to go to the game. Then she got there and no one else was there to cheer. Apparently she missed the coach saying last Thursday that they weren't cheering at this game. She also has decided not to try out for basketball cheering now because of all of this. She is so stubborn that once she makes up her mind on something that's it. My heart is just aching for her tonight. She tries hard to be a good friend to the friends she has and she doesn't deserve this. Thanks for listening, it's just been a very frustrating day.
