Despite what Buddy has shared about our visit, Q was actually a great kid. At first, he did what I consider to be typical teen stuff like, "quit making comments" and "if you do that, I'm just gonna keep doing it". There was a HUGE difference after she gave him a Ritalin "booster" after we ate. He was an absolute joy while we strolled the mall. He and difficult child 1 got along great! It was interesting to watch the two of them together. It was awesome! I have "strongly" suggested she get Skype so the two of them can chat. I had kind of filled my boys in on some of Q's issues ahead of time and as we were driving back to the hotel, they both commented that Q "wasn't that bad" (meaning his behavior). I had to chuckle because what they saw while we were eating is exactly the way difficult child 1 gets so we are used to it. Now, Buddy on the other hand, is a hoot! Her and difficult child 2 DID get along great. He really enjoyed interacting with her. Buddy's stress showed but it didn't interfere with the fun we had. I was glad to see her loosen up while we were with her. We talked about some other activities we can do once summer comes. I am really looking forward to doing more things together now that there are "people" attached to the posts!!!
