I gave in to difficult child 2. I just gave in. He has been so disrespectful the past 3 days, even hateful. Not just to me, but hateful to everyone - but very disrespectful to me. Well, I told him he could not go to the football game. I told him he was disrespectful and when he learned to respect me, then he could go. Well difficult child/easy child 1 was going to the game - even though she had her 1st dose of Remicade this week, she was sick for 2 1/2 days, she still insisted on doing what she needed to do on a daily basis. I did her chores on her days she was sick, but the others she worked extra to help me and her dad. She DEFINITELY deserved it!! difficult child 2 doesn't see it that way. He said he was sorry and that he wouldn't do it again (yeah, right) and even gave me a hug. I didn't hug him back and he got mad at me (that was one thing he would'nt do for me the other day when I hugged him and it was okay then). I just didn't feel like hugging him back! Isn't that alright?!?! He began the pity party for himself. I am so tired of it! difficult child/easy child 1 went outside and came back in to get something she forgot and I told him to get out of here and go to the game. But he needs to rethink his attitude (yeah, right, again). I shouldn't have let him go, but I needed a BREAK!!! I have NO ONE to send him to! I got a break from him- sent him to the game. And this morning - his nasty attitude is all over again! UGH!
