Today I ran across a Blog Entry from 2 years ago referencing my then 5 year old as "difficult", "unrulely", "disrespectful", "Jerk", and "messy".... SO yeah, I understand that my child falls into these categories but to see it in writing and to have someone that is supposed to be family putting it out there for the whole world to see was quite heartbreaking. The writer even said that she would "NEVER allow her son to act like that" and that she would feel "bad coming home after work every night".... You know, my life is difficult enough dealing with my own demons (ADHD, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)) but I also have my own child's demons to juggle on a day to day basis (ADHD, Anxiety). We are a bad cocktail waiting to explode and some days I wish we had it easier. BUT GD I F-ing TRY! I don't have the perfect child who raises his hand and does everything he is told and walks a straight line. HE IS different. And most days I love him for his differences. He's a good kid if you look past the hyperactivity and impuse issues. And I'm a good mother if you look past the mistakes I've made and stress that I'm under!
