so difficult child had his psychiatrist appointment yesterday and we decided to add another dose of risperidone for the am. it took 7 hours there and back in the car and 2 hours in the appointment. so it was a long day. difficult child was up bright and early this morning at 5 so i gave him his medication and breakfast and then got the other kids up and off to school and walked him down as he is on a modified time table and i have to stay with him... so at school we got in and he started whyning because he wanted a juicebox. i had no juicebox as i never bring one, he is only there for an hour most days. he pouted the rest of the way to class and then flopped on floor refusing to get up and refusing to take his boots off. after some gentle proding from the EA he took his boots off and got his book out of his bag, only to turn around and throw them at EA. teacher comes out and asks him if he's having a hard day, he yells that he hates her and she should get away from him. she says 'gee, i hope you cheer up so we can see you in class today.' and goes back into the classroom as she doesn't have time to deal with difficult child, she has 9 other special needs kids to look after. so he picks up his book and throws it again. i told him to cut that out or he is going to have to go back home. please put your shoes on so we can do our journal and go to the gym. he throws his book again and screams something i didn't catch at me and starts screaching and plows down the hallway at top speed yelling about how much he hates me...so i chased him and caught him. (haha...little bugger, i'm still faster than you; reminder to self hit the gym before he gets any bigger...lol) so i carried him back and told him get your shoes on, we are gonna go home and have a quiet day and he runs into the classroom and sits at his desk. teacher says 'hey difficult child, i'm glad you are joining us.' so of course how dare she right? he picks up a stack of paper off the cabinet beside him and throws it up in the air so paper is everywhere. i say 'no difficult child. that's not alright to do even if you are upset' and he hit me in the face with his book. so at that point i just grabbed him and said, "that's enough school for one day." and "Sorry." to his teacher. his ea helped me get our coats and his boots into his backpack and he was screaming bloody murder the whole time and needed to be restrained. every single teacher in the school poked their head out of the door to see what was happening. i was leaving in high gear and the new principle(first day on the job too) came running out and followed us outside where difficult child was trying to kick me in the face and offered us a ride home...lol. he was probably more upset than i was, he kept asking me if there was anything he could do. i just said, it's okay. it's not the first time i've had to grab him and go, and he just does this, there is no answer. i knew i could never get him into the car and have him stay buckled so i carried him over my shoulder kicking and screaming all the way home. construction workers laughed at us. old people stared. the joys of parenthood.........it took him about an hour and a half to calm down once we got home, and he's still blaming me for everything and hates me. it's funny, when they said he may become irritable from his medications getting uped this was not what i pictured. i feel like i could have handled it better but i'm not sure what i should have done. i'm not taking him to school tomorrow.
