Dmmetler Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 DD turns 8 in about 2 weeks-and honestly, it feels more like she's turning...oh...3 maybe? Everything, and I mean everything, is getting met with tears and frustration. Today I lost it and ended up snapping at her because she was supposed to be doing an online assignment (which took her literally 5 minutes once she actually stopped whining and did it) and couldn't find the "create new comic" button. Which was RIGHT THERE IN PLAIN SIGHT. You mean to tell me my theoretically reading on a high school level child couldn't read "create new comic"? Or couldn't figure out that you're supposed to...oh...CLICK THE BUTTON??!!!??? It's stuff like that constantly. Yesterday it was "There's no meat to make a sandwich". Uh...try about two different kinds, one shelf below where she was looking. Not even behind things. Fully visible. I know there's a lot of outside stress coming up and going on. A lot of it good stress, in that it's things like having family come in for Thanksgiving, her birthday party, and so on, but still stress, so I'm really trying to let school slide and mostly just let her do what's required for outside classes where I don't have full control over the agenda, and many of them will be stopping as we get closer to Christmas (and all will take a break Thanksgiving week). I'm willing to let her sleep late if she needs the sleep and I'm trying not to sign up for too much extra outside the house stuff. I don't know what else I can do. Sigh....
