I am a broken record

    And it's not even difficult child this time, though most of it is related to her.

    I think I'm just going to make some recordings:

    "I don't want to hear about difficult child's lack of, or inconsistent, 'effort' in class until her IEP is being followed."

    "I do not want to hear or read difficult child's journals. I live it."

    "The light switch works in both directions."

    etc, etc.

    OMG! I thought it was just me! If I get ONE MORE CALL from the bus driver and matron about difficult child 3, I'm going to explode!

    "We just thought we'd call so that you can hear what she's doing!"

    "What do you want me to do"

    "Well, we don't want you to do anything...we just wanted you to hear what she's doing"

    "Well, what do you want me to do?"

    "Uh, nothing...we just wanted..."

    Aside from the difficult child "repeats":

    "Don't bug the baby when she's playing by herself"
    "Don't take stuff from the kitchen without asking" (they take the shredded cheddar out of the bag and drop a good handful into the bottom of the fridge)
    "Stop screaming"
    "Don't answer the phone without checking with me"

    Is it against the rules to order them to not inhale or exhale?
