    Well, difficult child is going on his fourth week of work. He is getting overtime every week. He works extra shifts if they ask. He has not called in sick, and was late only once because of a severe t-storm and hail. He likes his job. He likes the people he works with. He seems happy and content with life. I should have had his teeth fixed years ago if this was going to be the result.

    Whyme---next I hope he finds a "nice" girl!!!
    Thanks Suz, jusduit, Lisa, and Star.
    I am very proud of him. He is doing an awesome job at work. His self-esteem has improved immensely. He is nice and cooperative at home---most of the time. He even gave up his chance to go to Disney because he didn't want to lose this job---that's a biggie for him!!!!
