difficult child will be spending another day at in-school suspensions this week. He apparently popped a child yesterday. It happened because my difficult child said the child sounded like a hillbilly, and the child replied to difficult child that he looked like one. So difficult child hit him lightly and the child replied that it didn't hurt so then, of course, my difficult child hit him harder. Argh! difficult child was upset though that he got an in-school suspension when apparently some kids had been picking on and hitting him earlier in the day and nothing happened to them. husband will follow up with the principal today. I'm so glad the week is at an end-his year at school had been so good until this week. We still have one more week to go before break-I'm crossing all body parts he makes it through!
