It was that kind of day. I won’t go into the details and the steep downhill slide that comes with reading his school communication log and then trying to do homework with him every day. All I will really say is that the end of this school year cannot come fast enough. I will miss my mid-day alone time, but I know at least one kid who is badly in need of some time off from all responsibilities and stress.
Hint: It’s Jack.
Because I’m not going into all of that, I’ll just point you to my White Knuckle Parenting column wherein I wrote about letting your children fail.
That was a really bad segue. The post is actually about some stuff going on with Sam.
If you want something that is not all about failure, Team Stimey was featured in Autistic Globetrotting’s Mother’s Day Celebration. There are a lot of fantastic posts there about traveling with autistic kids, including my contribution about how I prepare my kiddos for outings.
Anywho. I’m hoping to be rehired tomorrow. We’ll see. The interviewer is erratic but seems to like me. Most of the time.
