Wee difficult child goes to summer camp with a few kids that went to his private school. *** Today, one of those kids decided to tell several campers what a monster he was at the old school. She described, in detail, how he behaved there, and then suggested that perhaps his brother, the Marine, should just blow him up and rid the world of him. *** difficult child calmly told her maybe his brother should blow her up and walked away. *** OMG - you guys, this is HUGE. HE WALKED AWAY. *** This happened just before the group was leaving for today's field trip, and camp staff punished them both by not allowing them to go on the field trip, but after they talked to him and the little girl and the younger counselors who witnessed it, they realized that even tho he said what he did, it was pretty monumental that he didn't take matters further. *** They apologized for not letting him go on the field trip and offered him a reward for handling it so well, even tho what he said wasn't necessarily good. They also offered to catch him up with the field trip, but he asked if he could just go play on the playground with another group of campers. The girl was suspended. *** Me, the non-crier, is fighting some tears!
