I've heard how kids will often be one way or act up more with their primary caregiver (me). My husband doesn't seem to buy this theory and just makes me feel worse about things that have been happening with our adopted son. I basically feel like my schedule is my son's schedule between getting him off to preschool, taking him to swimming lessons, speech therapy, occupational therapy and gym classes. I do all that I can but I seem to be the one who gets the brunt of all the attitude. I hate you mom, or just leave me alone mom. Sometimes its as if he is a 14 year old teenager with hormones! I try not to let it get to me, knowing that a lot of times its pure impulsivity taking over and he can't help it or doesn't understand what he's saying. But, day after day of this gets so tiring and is just wearing me out. My husband says that he feels like his son and his wife don't get along. I can't blame him for making a statement like that since a lot of time we are arguing or I'm trying to get my difficult child to cooperate with something. Does someone feel my pain? Know where I am in all of this? At times I just want to run and escape it all but that's never an option, obviously, because I love my difficult child beyond words. I truly think he IS my difficult child and somehow through all the struggle we will both be stronger people. Thanks for reading and listening. I'm really thankful for this site and knowing that there are others out there who go through what I am going through each and every day.
