Hope started early today. Everybody was dressed and downstairs, Hope was done with breakfast, and I was finishing putting GB’s breakfast on the table. When I walked past Hope, she grabbed my pinky and bent it straight back. It is the first time she went after me for no apparent reason. I picked her up and put her in the timeout chair and she went into full rage mode. The last week the raging has been increasing and lasting longer. I guess the honeymoon is over. They are still honeymooning in school.
I am getting different ideas for restraint, because I am tired of being black and blue and clawed. MK says if I treated Hope like I treat GB, the rages wouldn’t happen. Of course, GB doesn’t intentionally try to hurt me.
The girls new bed comes today. I am looking forward to more space to to organize their clothes in.
