I love Halloween but this year I am really glad it is almost over. difficult child has been up since 5:15 this morning. At that time he began saying he wanted to trick or treat now! He has been manic like all day long. I am not sure he has stopped talking or singing the entire day! He has been a total difficult child driving us all crazy! He has been rude and disrespectful the entire day. I can't even explain just how off he was and the consequences we gave him did little to help. About the only time he was good was when we were trick or treating. He ran into a someone from his school who is also a difficult child. Apparently they are friends at school. difficult child's school is across town so we were surprised he ran into someone he knew. Turns out the child's grandparents live about a block and a half from here. We met them and exchanged numbers because difficult child's friend goes there every weekend. Who knows, maybe difficult child will now have someone to hang out with in the neighborhood. It was funny to watch the two of them because difficult child is super short; only 57 inches and the other boy is super tall-way taller than husband (not that husband is tall-only 5 feet 7 inches). How did everyone's difficult children do with trick or treating?
