It appears wee difficult child has iced his own cake AND added the cherry on top. Everyone who knows him has commented that he is FAR worse than he was. He has escalated every day and is even regularly hitting husband. Most recently, he was starting to get rough with a cat, and we took the cat away. (He wasn't hurting the cat, but he was escalating, and we were getting the cat outta dodge before he got there). In retaliation, he turned off the movie husband was watching. husband, who is at the end of his rope, too, swatted his butt. Pretty good swat, too. And then it was REALLY on. Wee difficult child hit me, hit husband, went after the cat, then threw about 3/4 of the stuff in his room at me as we were confining him to his room. This is pretty much how he's been for the past month. IT STINKS! Just needed to vent.
