Today difficult child has been in rare form. She goes from one irritating behavior to the next. She has been bugging her sisters nearly nonstop, and being really obnoxious to me: talking back, hitting me, punching me, etc. easy child 2 loves playing dress up. difficult child purposely ripped the sleeve on easy child 2's Cinderella gown, with a huge grin on her face as easy child 2 burst into tears. She keeps chasing easy child 1, swinging at her, throwing things, squirting her with water. I gave easy child 1 a stack of books and told her to lock herself in my bedroom. It's going to be a looooonnnngggggggg summer.
