I mentioned in my post about difficult child having no shame that I think something else is going on with him. He just asked me something and it's somewhat along the lines of why I think this. Not a perfect example but you should get the idea. The windows in the house are all open and the birds outside are having a good old time. There's one in particular that you can hear (no idea what kind it is but you would all recognize it if you heard it). difficult child asks me what the sound is. Um, what sound? (Tv is on, dogs moving around, birds chirping, traffic.....take your pick) He said "the bird". Me - Uh....it's a bird. difficult child - Oh, ok. What???? These types of things happen with him all the time. No one can have that little common sense, can they?
