DDD is home for her third day. She has had a bad head cold and a low grade fever. She was all ready for school this morning, just not quite 100% yet, when of course difficult child said just the wrong thing (a perfect button pusing comment, as he planned) and she burst into tears. His constant harrassment can be too much most of the time, but today instead of exploding at him, yelling or storming off all that came was tears. She was just pitiful. So...one more day home with me. I feel for her, especially when she is not feeling great. I guess I am coddling her, but a coddle once in a while is okay, right? Especially when difficult child can be so cruel.
