The roller coaster ride with difficult child is driving me batty these days!! He has some great moments-very cute ones at time but then he does something that makes it difficult to hold on to the cute times. We hadn't really seen difficult child much since Tuesday. Wednesday he was at camp and then husband and I went to friends' for dinner. He was asleep by the time we arrived home. I drove him to camp on Thursday which was his overnight, and then we picked him up Friday to take him to respite. I was really missing him. He called two of the nights and was so sweet. When we picked him up yesterday we took him and one of the other boys from respite to the batting cages. The two were so funny to listen to in the van. The boys were talking and suddenly the other boy said that he goes to therapy (just out of the blue). difficult child said so does he. They both agreed they hated it because they make you talk about feelings and what is going on in your life-lol. Then the down side. difficult child gets up this morning and plops himself on our bed. He didn't want to go to camp and when we told him it wasn't a choice he started elbowing me (of course, his excuse-my leg was in his way) and then bashing his head on my leg. When I told him he was at "stop the world" I was called all sorts of names. Then he didn't want me to go with him and husband to camp because he was mad and he tried to block me from going out to the van and then wanted me in the back seat. Since I didn't feel like more arguing I got in the driver's seat and husband sat next to me. The fact that I was driving calmed him down a bit. Seriously, this is so frustrating. husband and easy child were just saying how cute difficult child was at times tonight (and he was) but I'm having a hard time seeing that side of him (again he was rude and disrespectful tonight and at one point threw his dirty socks in my face-I know not the biggest thing in the world but right now I am feeling so frustrated it made me crazy even though I didn't react). Thanks for listening-just needed to get this out! I need to start holding on to the good moments more-somehow-because right now I don't much want to be around him.
