difficult child has always been "stuck up my fannie" as husband puts it. She's always asking where I'm at, following me around, checking on me under doors, cries for me when I leave, checks on me from other rooms, on me like a hawk if I'm trying to talk on the phone.....just NEEDS to know I'm close by & "OK", along with making sure I'm not paying attention to anyone else She has also never liked when husband gives me a hug, touches me (rubbing my feet turns in to a meltdown). Anyway...husband's hours have been drastically cut & he's at home more. I opened my availability at work....sometime husband has to get difficult child off the bus. She FREAKS! This past weekend...we both only had to work a few hours on Friday & had the weekend off. She flipped out over us being in the same room! What the heck!? Oh....we took her to her first Special Olympics bowling practice....she didn't want us to watch & would throw herself on the floor & start to explode. We watched from behind the popcorn machine...hiding for 2 & 1/2 hours! OMG....what's up with this child.....any idea why it's getting worse & not better???? Thanks for listening. by the way...I feel bad for husband. He knows how much she smothers me (as he puts it) & doesn't want to add to it....so, he backs off. I know it upsets him.
