is about to get crazier. Got an email from his orchestra teacher last night. She's wanting to eliminate the alternating-Monday-afterschool-rehearsals and just have the kids meet EARLIER each morning. So instead of starting at 6:50am on M,T,Th, she's proposing they start at 6:25am! So THAT means I'd be getting up at 4:45am to give difficult child 1 his Focalin, which I do so that it's working by the time I give him his Daytrana patch an hour later because the patch takes a couple hours to kick in, by which time the Focalin is wearing off. WHY does our life have to be SO. DARN. COMPLICATED?!!! I replied to the teacher that while I appreciate the hard work she's put into working on the schedule, and while I don't understand why it's such an atypical schedule in the first place, asking us to come in even earlier is a HUGE challenge because of difficult child 1's medication issues. We'll do whatever's decided, but I had to let her know how it's going to affect us.
