Well, I've been eagerly looking forward to the end of the school year because I am just so tired of the homework headaches and difficult child 1's health issues that impact school and I just want a break. And NOW.... I'm starting to panic because in 8 calendar days, I will have all three home for the summer!!! This panic was brought on by a huge fight easy child had with difficult child 1 last night, and I'm just envisioning more of the same... God, please grant me the strength to keep everyone busy and cooperative this summer! It all started innocently enough... the two were horsing around and laughing. You know, like "normal" siblings are known to do. But as usual with a difficult child, things changed quickly and suddenly there was an escalation and apparently difficult child 1 stuffed one of his dirty socks in easy child's mouth and then held her nose closed. I was in another room, and because I'd just heard them laughing, I wasn't going to get involved -- and frankly, I'm tired of being the referee... So once easy child got free, she was understandably enraged and started to chase difficult child 1 (who is still laughing, so I'm thinking, they're still horsing around) into his room where she pummelled him as best an 11yo who's almost as big as her 15yo brother can do. Then she came out and started screaming at me because I "never do anything about difficult child 1!!!" I'd love to put easy child in a day camp or some classes, but she's been very resistant to being signed up for anything. She wants complete freedom to do nothing this summer (which I think for her means watching TV and playing video games). I'm sure I'll figure something out... right now I'm just tired and ready for a break from everyone.
