    Since difficult child had to spend over night at the psychiatric ER back in March his behavior has been almost exemplary. husband kept insisting that he's a changed kid. One night in the ER was enough to frighten the heck out of him and all of our troubles were over. I wasn't quite ready to jump on that band wagon.

    It appears I was right. Over the last week or so I've started noticing a general up tick in his temper. Quick, angry outbursts. Cursing. Whining. I told husband this afternoon that it's just a matter of time before were right back to where we were in March. His reply was, "We better not be."

    I have to say that the honeymoon period lasted longer than I thought it would.

    He has an appointment with the therapist next week. I'll have to give her a call and let her know what I'm seeing.

    I'm sorry Bunny. I hope it is just some external stressor, and he will improve. Hugs.

    He has two Regents exams coming up at the end of the school year and they are starting review for them already. I don't know if it's that, or just the end of his trying to be better behaved.

    After this afternoon, I can definitely say the honeymoon is over.
