TL, first of all, I am sorry you are sick and I hope you can go to bed and just rest. You deserve to do that.
Second, huge kudos to you for yesterday! You did fantastic! Congratulations! I know it was hard, especially being sick, but You. did. it. Awesome.
Now, you know what, it made me mad difficult child trying to divert all of THIS onto a conversation you had with his lawyer. difficult children will pick out the smallest things we do and make them into a mountain, while look at what THEY are doing...????!!!!!
So, okay, maybe you shouldn't have said anything about him at all to his lawyer, but I get it, and you are only human. I imagine in my fear and nervousness and not feeling good, I would have done exactly the same thing.
It's about keeping our side of the street clean. Regardless of what THEY do, we still have to keep our side of the street clean, and when we mess up, we have to apologize. I know you did that, and you already get it, so I'm just reminding myself today, that it's not about what difficult child does or does not do, at this age and stage, it's about what I do or do not do.
Warm hugs. I hope something good happens for him there. I am so glad he called and apologized. That is huge.
