Such a frustrating weekend here due to difficult child. He has been in a demanding and ornery mood. He flies off the handle at the least little thing. If he doesn't want to hear something he'll just scream at me to shut up. He tells me how much he hates me and in the next breath is begging me to play a game with him. He doesn't give difficult child or me a moment's rest. I'm at the point where I seldom feel like doing something with him. I usually make myself play(not right after he has been a pita) and about 2/3 of the time regret it. He is just constantly is making noise and doing things to bother husband and myself. Of course, he is also getting on easy child/difficult child's nerves and then a lot of yelling between the two of them ensues. husband and I managed to have some fun despite difficult child. We tag teamed naps this weekend and today went for a walk in the arboretum. Unfortunately we brought difficult child along who wanted to leave a few minutes after we arrived. At one point he started trying to walk on my heels. We stayed about 1/2 hour and will go back next week with-o difficult child (the colors here are beautiful right now). Then we took him for ice cream (husband really wanted some) and as we left he immediately stops bothering us about getting more food. I know I'm rambling here; I'm just so worn down by difficult child right now. He always wants us to be doing something with him. He really needs some friends but just doesn't have any. O.k., enough of my vent; he just has me so exhausted.
