    hi i haven't been around much and i'm sorry. i'm just learning how to juggle all this and it's getting hectic at times. yet today i got easy child a job. it was part of the overall plan for her.

    it's no big deal yet it's a good start a bagel store down the road on saturday mornings, it'll really help i think with building her self esteem and hopefully her security level. she's very outgoing yet alone she melts and needs a friend escort everywhere. hoping to get her some volunteer work in may after her 16th birthday. no one will take her right now she's too young.

    so far she's passed all her midterms thank goodness. her and i will be going into therapy soon together to learn how to mend easy child due to difficult child's neediness and issues for years now and wreaking just a little bit of havoc in our home lol. i think easy child is very frustrated trying to deal with difficult child at times.

    overall easy child is a good easy child lately. just taking it one step at a time.

    That's really good news for easy child. Good news for you, too, right when you could do with some.

    Congrats to easy child on her job!! I'm hoping my easy child will get one this summer. She needs to get out more-she's practically a hermit. Good idea on the therapy for easy child. Mine has been going for a few years but it's been awhile since her last appointment. Think I'll be calling tomorrow to make one!

    That's very good news! I'd be in there, ordering bagels left and right if it were my easy child. :)

    Once she is comfortable with-her job, and she gets the volunteer work under her belt, she won't need to be escorted everywhere. Like you said, one step at a time. This is a great start. It's always so exciting when teens get their first job. :)

    good morning yes she needs it. she's not too happy about it, yet in time she'll adapt and hopefully grow. here's hoping.

    That is really good news. I bet it boosts self esteem a lot.
