Ok well it actually started last night. Manster and I took his friend R's mom out for her 40th birthday to a sushi place. It was R, her mom T and older sister J. R likes to instigate and manster is highly sensitive, sometimes a bad combination. Anyway, R sat next to me and manster was upset and they fought till manster gave in like always. I didn't think it was a big deal. But R and I shared a meal and overall it wasn't as bad as those restaurant outings used to be. Well on the way home all I heard was how I liked R more than him, I shared food with her, made comments about how nice she was, etc. which he takes and insults against him somehow. I guess most kids, especially our kids are pretty self absorbed lol. He was mad and let me know it. This morning he started back on it. How I obviously like R more than him, he hates sharing the people in his life, life is so unfair to him etc. A real meltdown. As we neared school (this was in the car) he pulled it together because he didn't want anyone to see him cry and make fun of him. A lot of days go by and I question whether he really has AS and then days like today remind me. I'm scared as I think about his navigating the world some day. But all I can do is take it one day at a time and give the rest over to my HP.
