I am currently, completely stumped on what to get difficult child for Christmas. He is slowly transitioning from the hospital back to the Residential Treatment Center (RTC), and probably/hopefully will be full time in the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) by Christmas - but he will probably be one of a handful (or maybe the only one?) that will not be allowed a visit from family. Furthermore, I have no idea what to even get him for Christmas. I mean truthfully, he doesn't need anything, and after all he has put me through he should get nothing - but - you all know - that is not the way a mommy heart works. His first Cmas without his family, at age 18 - that really stinks. It is hard enough for me with my sister dead, my parents out of town, and difficult child in ID - I can't imagine how icky he will feel. So anyway. Not to belabor the point. I feel like I should get him some thoughtful gifts - but I can't think of one thing except an itunes gift card. He is in a Residential Treatment Center (RTC), so they don't allow much of anything, but it is a group home so there is a lot of outside activity, etc. He has more clothes than he needs, and he does not like to read. Any ideas? I know there are a lot of you who have been in this same boat before or now so thanks in advance.
