and wishing I never had to but easy child/difficult child is just a pure difficult child tonight. I know this is minor compared to many of you with difficult children over 18 but I need to get this out so I hope it is o.k. I am posting here. husband, difficult child, and I came home from difficult child's wrestling practice and on the way picked him up some Wendy's to eat (husband and I had eaten earlier while waiting for difficult child). easy child/difficult child usually has class til 7:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays so we didn't pick anything up for her. When we got home she asked why we didn't pick her something up. We told her we would have if we had thought she would be home. She was whining and complaining so much husband said he would go out and get her something after he sorted laundry (which I thought was way beyond nice on his part). Then she was watching tv (at a loud volume). During all of this I was trying to get difficult child to get up into the shower-nothing major just teenage delaying. She asked if I wanted the tv off while I tried to get him up and I said fine because the volume was so loud anyways. She ended up turning it on again and when I calmly asked her to lower the volume she screamed that it was too loud in the house and she couldn't hear it (not true at all); she was screaming like she was so incredibly angry. I did tell her to please lower it or I would need to shut it off because I couldn't stand the noise. The next thing I know the remote hit me in the nose full force; she had thrown it at me. I ended up with the biggest bloody nose I've ever seen in my life and that includes difficult child's gushers when he was younger. I screamed and started crying (still hurts) and ran into the bathroom so I could be over a sink. By this time husband and difficult child who were upstairs when it happened knew what had happened. Next thing I know she is complaining to husband because I got blood on her shoe (how could I? geesh). husband couldn't believe she had the nerve to complain and sent her out to get her own food. She's been gone about 45 minutes so I'm not sure where she went. I'm guessing that she is upset about something else but that does not excuse her throwing the remote or acting that way. I know she didn't mean to hit me in the nose but this is ridiculous. Of course, now there is blood all over my new sweatshirt, the carpet, the chair, the floor, and the sink. husband is ticked and difficult child is beyond ticked. I'm afraid he is going to try and start something with her. Thankfully I was able to get him to bed after my nose started bleeding. He is telling us he is going to beat her up or stab her. Great-that's all we need. I think we were able to get him to understand how bad that would be. And here is my whine... MY NOSE HURTS!!!!!!! and...I'm feeling sorry for myself tonight. Thanks for listening. I'm not sure yet what to say to her when she gets home. She has been doing really well lately and overall acting very maturely. This just came out of left field.
