....no one wants to play with him! When people don't "play by HIS rules" (and only he knows what they are) he throws his temper tantrums and stomps off or throws things or breaks things. He's screaming the whole way home "I don't like you any more!", "You're not my friend anymore!", or some other such nonsense. Then the next day he can't figure out why that same person won't play with him! But there is something to be said about his perseverance, he just keeps knocking on doors seeing if this kid or that kid can play and they lie to him but he keeps trying. It has been a crazy summer already with our dog, Bandit, getting mauled (he got stitches and staples out last week and is doing GREAT ), getting a new puppy, Princess Peabrain, who chews on everything (including us ) but is as cute as they come, difficult child acting like he makes the rules (as usual), trying to get a house warming and easy child 2's b-day party set up before difficult child completely destroys his room (not likely), and 2 "bored" pubescent easy child teens acting like difficult child's! Oh well! So much for looking forward to summer! Now I am the one counting down, only I am counting down to school <u>starting</u>. Seven weeks! Only God knows if I am going to make it!
