I got word today from DSS social worker that difficult child#1 has been placed in permanent foster home. Permanent only meaning NOT hot-line homes. So she will have a room there and will sleep at this same house each night. Services are beginning tomorrow with a psychologist going to the house tomorrow. Apparantly, this psychologist makes home visits to this foster home as there are other foster kids she sees. She does individual and family, if there are issues that need to be addressed. There will also be a medication. evaluation. scheduled. I feel better knowing that something has begun...difficult child#3 is out of control tonight...wouldn't eat dinner, called difficult child#2 a hole, threw the ping pong paddles downstairs and wouldn't pick them up. He was sent to bed. I know he is up there watching tv. I wanted to lie in bed and read The Explosive Child, but I know I should go up there and turn off the tv. And i know there will be an explosion. Help!! Oh, and you ask what husband is doing??? He would be lying on the couch watching that stupid motorcycle show, the name escapes me at the moment. And difficult child#2 in my room with me asking me to play jenga...Calgon ,take me away!
