As you all know gfg acted out the other day regarding his home school obligation and as a result, dh told me that he didn't want to hear about him again. Dh did resume speaking to me the next day but has acted like he never said anything. I have been real good about not mentioning gfg to dh at all these past few days.
Wed & Thurs, gfg did not do the required pages in his math as he needed some help-each nite, he came home early, listened to my attempts to explain the work and completed his required pages for the day--this is major! This morning, I had to leave early to take a MS Mortgage Law class (boring-like watching paint dry) and was not at home to prod him to get up when his alarm rang to get up and go to his testing sessions. He got up on his own, went to the home school center and tested on 4 subjects. Not only did he do this, he passed each one of them! He passed 3 of them with scores of 100 and the English which he rufused to go to tutoring for Tuesday, as he was convinced he would fail, he passed with a score of 80-another major stride!
I told dh today, that although he didn't want to hear about gfg, he was gonna hear this as it was positive. He then said he really didn't mean what he said but that he gets so frustrated when he hears negative things that he sometimes just blows. I told him that when I report negatives to him that I am just looking for support. He acknowledged this and all is well with us. When he met gfg at gas pump to fill his tank today, gfg called me and told me that dh told him he was proud of what he did today-so all is well there too. I knew it would work itself out-I just needed to vent the other day and I thank all who replied with such words of wisdom.
