I was right. Michael admitted he added the carpet cleaning solution to the dishwasher b/c he didn't want to do that chore. He was mad at Rosa for giving it to him and mad at me for not being here along with some other irrational things. I caught him wiping off some peanut butter on a butter knife and putting it back in the clean ones. I have hollered and hollered about nasty dishes with food left on it could make us sick. I had no idea it would help him come up with a plan to hurt us. He told me that he wanted to hurt us. He did, too. Many of the kids have had diarrhea. He crossed a line that put several more things in place to keep us safe.
Patches sat on the computer for 2 hours today. I asked her to get off and let someone else play and she refused to move for some time. How dare I do such a thing, right? I gave her the choice of moving or lose her computer privilege tomorrow and she threw the chair. No one was hurt and I tried to talk to her about taking a few minutes to calm down. She screamed at me and ran out of the room only to bash her head into the wallpapered stairwell. She hit it at least 5 times until her entire head left a hole. To fix it the upstairs hall, stairwell, and entryway will have to be skimmed, Kilzed, and painted. This is no simple job. Our landlord is going to be VERY mad that we have to cover the wallpaper his wife loves so much. She threatened to call the cops on me and eventually went to her room to pull out chunks of her hair. She came down to dinner 15 minutes later like nothing is wrong. Mental illness, want one?
Rosa is sick of being flashed by my kids. She has confronted them and feels assaulted by this behavior. I mean really, who wants a bunch of sexually reactive kids in a bathroom with them when they threaten to make up lies about their mom already? She is completely freaked out. They have such horrible boundaries that they show all their stuff to anyone. After almost 3 years you would think we have a grip on this. All I can say is if you ever meet them don't go near a bathroom with them, save yourself.
Cyr asked me to teach her how to restrain Patches and Michael if they attack her. I almost fell over laughing. Why would I teach her (a sexual predator) to restrain younger children? I kindly explained privately why I don't think that would be a good idea. Her response was, "I don't do that anymore". Not this week but I will not trust her for a VERY long time.
Ella took me aside to "talk privately". I dreaded the conversation b/c she likes to tell me disgusting details about her activities that I could live a lifetime never knowing. She tells me that Michael was told by a friend that his parents took him outside and stripped him naked and beat him. I asked Michael about it and he put his head down, he had lied and was telling a story abut when he was beaten.
