Vacation—A short trip to see Grandpa Jim and Grandma Kathy and Disneyland—there was no time to visit Uncle John and his kids were away—We did see Uncle Jamie and cousin Travis age two.
Inappropriate Behaviors—Makala decided that she wanted to sleep on one of the bunks in the boys room because Scott was at camp. The adults (My father, and Step mother and myself) got an ODD hit out of the reasons, and behaviors of Makala… and my fathers expressed that “all she needed was a willing partner….” So everyone watched VERY closely. On the second night when Daddy arrived Makaylah was moved and slept on the sofa because she would not stop playing in Sarah’s room.
Inappropriate Behaviors—At the Hotel by Disneyland the first evening was spent in a WAR with Makala because the ‘sleeping’ rule was girls in one bed—boys in the other. Makala argued that Jeremiah was getting something she was not getting and it was no fair. Triangulation went on constantly all evening and ended with a RAGE. Girls slept in one bed and boys in the other.
Running—The “New” trick of the game!
On our way into Disneyland on the second day Makala had been angry because instead of swimming we rested for the late night planned…She was having a fit in the area in front of the main gates—where the trams and busses stop. When suddenly she decided to dart and run away from us fast. I ran after her and managed to get her right shoulder and when I tried to get her left she slipped away so I grabbed her hair….and she fell to the ground and rolled around like I was poking her with a hot stick… It was a terrifying moment for me—I had a true feeling of panic run through me—it was an UNSAFE situation.
At a McDonalds on the drive home—there were some tables outside…Daddy asked Makala to stay back and help mommy carry everything to the table—Makala had eaten a Peanut butter and Jelly sandwich on the road and wasn’t hungry she wanted a Sundae and mom said, “ I will make a deal with you”………and Makala got angry and ran out the door of the McDonalds….
