difficult child asked me today why I seem like I'm mad at him. Hmmmm...lets think about this: He got angry at me because I was parenting easy child He hit me. He threatened to beat the cr@p out of me. He pulled a knife and threatened to kill himself. And to top it all off, he comes home from school today and complains that he missed the party they had in his Italian class this past Friday because he had to spend the night in psychiatric ER and tells me, yet again, that it's all my fault because calling the police while he was brandishing said knife was unnecessary. Gee...I can't for the life of me figure out why difficult child is not my favorite person right now.
