My 18 month is out of control!

I am so excited I have found this board!!! I am embarressed to say my child is that child that you see in public and think to yourself "if that was my child id show him whos boss"
I am a working mom and we leave at 6:15 am and dont get home till about 6pm. He's with a home provider with another little boy that is 2. He WILL NOT stay still for a diaper change, if it's stinky he gets his hands into it and tries smearing if everywhere. No matter what he just fights me the whole time, same thing about getting dressed.
My biggest issue is the bottle, he has to have his bottle of milk as soon as he wakes up or he will stand by the fridge and screams his head off, Ive tried just giving him his cup, he THREW it at me and screamed baba. He will come and get my finger and try to take me to the fridge and if I dont go he throws his self down screaming or bites me. Hes a bad biter. WILL NOT drink from his cup for nothing. He wont sleep without the bottle ive tried just water in his bottle, ive tried putting lemon juice in his bottle and he just screams. When he takes me to the fridge he wants me to open it and he turns and sits on it and then throws things out of it. When I physically move him he freaks out and bangs his head or attacks me to bite me.
Now some of it is lazyness on my part I am tired when I get home and just give in so I can relax. If he comes and gets my finger and heads to the bathroom that means its bath time. My 18 month old tells us when he will get his bath???

This is what ive tried the corner, now when he does something he will run to the corner and bang his head into really hard ( two bloody noses)
Tried putting him in his bed when he throws a fit this kid tears his bed up ( crib ) tears all the sheets off and throws them on the floor, takes his diaper off makes a real mess
I have tried spanking him not hard but popping him on the leg it just angers him more and come at me FULL FORCE
Ive tried diverting his attention and starting something new still doesnt work he goes back to whatever he was doing.
Im sorry to say my husband is no help at all all he does is scream and yell or ignores us. Its just me ANY advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

What I'd give to take this unruly child into my home, for even just a day! Boy-oh-boy... would there EVER be some changes.
