Woke up this morning and a form for football pictures lay on the kitchen counter. Asked difficult child, when are pictures going to be taken (thinking I would have time to select which package to purchase). Today! Well, difficult child had a game yesterday and didn't shower afterward. In fact hasn't showered since Sunday...you can about imagine. The not showering has been a persistent issue with him, but Basket B so far. I did tell him if he didn't shower I wasn't going to buy pictures this year. (Payment is due at the time they are taken, otherwise I don't think they even take the individual photo) I guess it was too much of a transition for him because he refused. I had to leave for work, left in tears. I've had a picture of him in his football uniform since grade 4...this year may be the end of the line for football anyway, he can't stop smarting off to the coaches and is rather small for his age. (yes, I am convinced the ADHD medications stunted growth...) I'm sad.
