We were at my in-laws this afternoon to see father in law for his birthday. While we were there difficult child was acting like his normal, annoying self. Wants to be the center of mother in law's attention. Gets annoyed when she wants to sit and talk with husband and me. Keeps telling me that he wants to go home. When are we going home? I told him that if he wanted to walk home I would give him my key to the house and he could walk home. No, that's not what he wants. He wants ALL of us to go home. husband tells him that we're not ready to go home. Finally he plops himself down, practically on top of mother in law, and says he wants her to scratch his back, but he doesn't say it as nicely as that. That's keeps him mostly quiet for about half an hour. Eventually he pulls her slipper off of her feet and throws it across the room. I say, "difficult child, stop doing that!" That completely sets him off. I have to learn that he's joking around and I have to be nicer to him. On and on about how everything is my fault. mother in law tries to get his attention, but he just looks at her and and says, "Stop!! I'm dealing with mom." So, husband and I say it's time to go home. He says that he's not leaving. husband, easy child and I pack up and leave. About 10 minutes later mother in law calls to tell me that difficult child is walking home. He told her to drive him home (we live around the corner and down the block from them, so it's a realatively short walk from there to her) and she said no, that she would not. If he wanted to ask father in law if he would drive him him, that was fine, but she wasn't going to. So, he walked. He gets in the door. I was reading a book. He walks in and says to me, "You can't even say hi?" I looked up and said, "Hi." That didn't go over well. He then started in again about how I have to learn to let him joke around and I have to learn to be nice. Everything was about me and how it's all my fault. The best was when he said to me that if I didn't learn to be nicer to him he was going to start cursing at me and then dad would be mad at me because dad would know that it's all my fault. Does he think that I take that as a threat? I laughed.
