I emailed difficult child's English teacher to ask when she wanted to meet to discuss his grades. She said she's floating his grade until he takes a makeup test from a month ago, which is replacing a paper that he never wrote or turned in. In email, she suggested that he take the test today. He texted me and said he signed an agreement to take the test tomorrow. (Wed.) WTH? I left a msg for the teacher at the school, saying that difficult child takes the test TODAY. Then I texted difficult child and said I will return his iPad as soon as the test is graded. Not when it's taken ... when it's GRADED. I've had it with-his cr*p. He's doing the same thing in science. And today, after I had congratulated him TWICE on eating at the kitchen table instead of hoarding food in his room, I found 3 dinner plates, 2 salad plates, two forks, 2 spoons and a mostly finished TV dinner with-gravy stuck to it. (Never mind that the gravy isn't gluten free. husband bought it.) There was a kitchen towel shoved in a salad bowl, and it was crusted to it like glue. Gross!!!! Luckily, difficult child's medications seem to be working. He only gets mild heart palpitations once or twice a day, and hasn't gone to the nurse's ofc or texted me about it. And he is much more conversational. The bus is here.
