was loving his comment he made to difficult child (even though he can be a bit of a difficult child himself). Yesterday we had a beautiful day at the beach (Lake Michigan) with my sister in law and great nieces and great nephews. As we were walking away from the beach difficult child wanted something (can't remember what) and I said no. difficult child started whining and I told him yeah you should wine you are so deprived. difficult child responded that yes he was and my great nephew apparently disagrees. He told difficult child how luck he was to live in a nice house, have things that we bought for him, that we took him places and did things with him. Today when difficult child started complaining again I brought up how he should be thankful for what he has and he told me that he wished his cousin had never said that and I should just drop it. Hmm-makes me think a nerve was struck!
