Someone went right back to bed after they got dressed and had to be picked up and forced out the door to catch their bus.

Someone peed on themselves and tried to walk out the door with a GIANT wet spot from his waist to his knees. He was completely shocked I found this unacceptable and only changed after I asked 6 times.

Someone pooped in my driveway and thinks I am mean because I suggested they need to be supervised outside to be sure they found the bathroom when they needed to go.

Someone has a room that smells like pee.

Someone's teacher called and said many good things about them.

Someone called their G Gma and told her I was mean and they wanted to come home.

Someone refused to eat dinner because they were mad at me for scolding them after they attacked another child for no reason that anyone else could tell.

Someone had to sit and explain to a teacher that the child they see at school isn't the child their family sees and the tantrum the child spoke of having over the weekend was a 3 hour standoff that included hundreds of dollars worth of property and death threats.

Someone was threatened by a school official to either dis enroll an absent child or be reported to DFCS.

Someone found out 2 kids will be placed at one local facility while the other will be at another one forcing the family to drive all over the state for family therapy.

Someone had a tiny camera on the end of a long cord shoved up their nose a very long way only to hear they need to have their adenoids removed.

Someone got a second opinion today they didn't like.

Someone has a physical for their pending adoption tomorrow with 2 toddlers that terrorize every waiting room they visit.

Wonder what tomorrow has in store for Someone.

I'm exhausted just reading. How, oh how, does SOMEONE do it? SOMEONE is amazing.

Someone needs a vacation! But of course, that's not in the cards for Someone unless you count all that cross-state travel.

Someone is pretty incredible.

Not a boring second goes by does it?

someone needs some chocolate and a chick flic to watch while everyone else is being supervised by someone else.

"Someone" must be related to "Nobody" at my house, because when those things happen here "Nobody" did it. Hope Someone has a better day tomorrow and YOU get a break.

Hugs and prayers for Someone,

I can't decide the best place to comment, but thanks for sharing your story. I work with kids and am educating myself on attachment disorders, among other things. Your blog allows a tiny glimpse into lives affected by these, which allows for better overall understanding. Thank you.
