difficult child knows she's going to the TBS soon, but not exactly when - she was snooping on my mother in law's phone last night and found our texts about packing. We were going to tell her everything this afternoon because there's a mandatory school event this morning, and we wanted to avoid drama with her there. So she knows it's soon, just not HOW soon. Based on her reaction last night, I'm fearful for these next few days until she leaves. Last night she was very upset, going OFF about how awful and uncaring her family is, threatening to do whatever it takes to get kicked out of the school, etc. She is probably really going to freak out when she learns she's leaving first thing Tuesday morning. I know there's a light at the end of the tunnel, but these next few days are, I predict, going to be absolute hell. CPS visited my home the other day to talk to husband and difficult child, but I had to be gone to pick up my son from an activity. CPS worker said that she does have to make another visit to meet me and the boys and make sure everything is kosher. I am SO ****** that my boys have to have anything to do with this. Apparently along with the accusation of abuse from 10 years ago, she also made a threat against my sister in law (her aunt whom she'd been living with for the past 5 weeks), and that also was a CPS trigger. My sister in law is coming back home from being out of town tomorrow, and we're planning to get together next week to talk about difficult child's time at her house. She didn't share a lot with me while difficult child was there, but she did say that some of her behavior was horrible, and that there were some very disturbing things difficult child did that she is unsure if they were just for show or not. My curiosity is piqued as to what these disturbing things are. So anyway, keep us in your thoughts through the next few days. I admit I'm somewhat afraid of how difficult child is going to behave once she finds out that Tuesday is The Day.
