That child of mine has me so livid with her that I can't see straight!!! It's taken me over an hour to calm down enough to type. She was pretty well behaved after school, but deteriorated quickly after dinner. Impulsive, whiny, not listening. A real PITA. She had Daisies tonight, so I took her against my better judgement. She promised she would pull it together and not act up even if some of the other girls were. She lied. We weren't there five minutes when I had to pull her. She wrote a bad word on the blackboard!!! (Three letter word for donkey) Then I had to listen how one of the other girls tattled. And a few other girls said the word. I had already told her that her behavior is what I care about, not the other girls... by the way, she also hates me & will be running away (insert hobo icon here !). "I" have embarrassed "her" by removing her from her meeting. She was sent right to bed and there will be no tv tomorrow or dessert through Saturday. And, if she likes writing this word so much, she can spend her afternoon writing it out repeatedly.
