Most of you know, my 98 year old mother is living with me. She has cancer and some senile dementia. She has been losing weight and the doctor has made it clear to me that I need to be sure and get her to eat. Tonight, difficult child 2 BBQed hamburgers and hot dogs for us. She had a hamburger and ate about two bites so I took it in the living room so she could work on eating it there. I had to go to difficult child's house for a few minutes and when I got back the burger was gone. I doubted if she ate it but she swore she did and I looked in the trash, etc. and didn't find it. Later, I went into the bathroom. Our toilet doesn't flush unless you hold the handle down extra long. She had tried to flush the burger down the toilet. (I tried to put a mad icon here but it's not working). I was livid! If one of the grandkids had done that I'd have whipped their behinds. Now I know where the difficult child-ness is inherited from!
