These are the words my darling difficult child has decided are cool to use nearly 10 times daily. I know, I know, somewhat typical bratty kid stuff, but boy does she know how to hit the nerve. You know the one, that Mommy nerve that is still raw from dealing with all the other difficult child-ish carp she is handing us lately. I have been in tears so much lately, I think I need an IV. Errrgghh! And now, yes, we have school refusal. Can this school year be over with NOW? At last week's meeting with-teacher, all agreed, taking Track away would be last resort, and only if she is also having issues in the track program. She is perfect in track, no brainer there! Behaviorist comes out on Monday. I have major mixed feelings, scared because I know behaviors might get worse for a while, relieved that we might actuall find a way to make this family stay together. Cause as it stands now, easy child and I will be leaving again very soon if things don't improve in the next few months. I can't take all the passive aggressive/full on aggressive behavior much longer. Poor easy child is back to sleeping with me, she is having nightmares every night now. Last night she said she dreamed a giant monster was trying to kill me. I reminded difficult child yesterday that if she touches me in anger, crisis team is called into action. She tried to debate the subject with me, I just walked away. School is a nightmare. Her attitude is so bad she got to spend yesterday morning recess with the assistant pricipal. Punishments don't seem to matter, rewards don't seem to matter. Some days it doesn't pay to get up! Sorry, bad several weeks. Going back to my corner now.
