Of sorts and a question - been awhile since I have been in here and I apologize. I have went back to work part time and the 2 days a week I am off that job I am babysitting my niece so I am basically working full time right now. My son turned 16 - he is still managing to stay out of self contained. He almost blew it yesterday. Well I don't think they would have thrown him back in self contained for this but it still scared the cra* out of me. His english teacher 1st period so nicely gave him his FCAT reading scores and he failed. He thought he aced it. He called me from 3rd period and told me "mom you gotta come get me, I am going to get into trouble if I stay here". I was at work and he said he would call my sister. I told him to call me back - long story but the phone calls went back and forth. Sis went to get him and they couldn't find him!!!! I started to panic. Guess it doesn't matter how old they get - when they come up missing - it is so scary. The bell rang for 4th period and he showed up in that class thank God. She took him back to her house. He basically did a good thing by calling me - he was trying to do preventive maintanence. I told him I admired him for that decision - it's just after that he kinda handled things wrong by going to a different part of the school and visiting with a teach from last year. Oh it's o.k. son don't follow procedure just go where ever you want to. Aughhhh!!!!! The attendance lady said she could write him up for doing that but looked at his history this year and seen that he didn't have any referrals so she said she wouldn't this time. Problem was he freaked - he knows he has to have 2 years of a foreign language to get into a 4 year university. He thought he was totally out of college. Because of the adhd and his thought patterns he didn't stop to think there were ways he can still get all the credits he needs. He is doing much better with his temper - he will have a flare up occassionally but not near what it use to be. I do have a question for those of you whose dear little ones have gotten old enough to move out and get a job. Does it get better? Have they called you from there work asking you to come get them because they couldn't handle it? Or if they drive - just left work? What is this kid gonna do in the adult world? Mommy can't go talk to the college professor or boss and straighten everything out.
