for difficult child to start driving us crazy! Some days I'm so tired of dealing with an 11 year old who thinks he is about 16 and acts like he is about 4 or 5 years old. I'm tired of the constant rudeness, posturing, and inappropriate behavior along with his refusal to be redirected by just about anything. Right now I'm feeling guilty that I'm so glad his sleeping medications have kicked in! There was one bright spot-he did realize he had pushed too things too far at one point. I had stopped decorating the tree because he was such a pain (that is putting it nicely) and sat down on the couch. I was complaining about my dry hands and he went and got me some of his lotion (for him to share his lotion with me is huge) and he apologized for his actions. Ahh-tomorrow is another day!
