So difficult child's case carrier invited her dad to attend the IEP set for tomorrow. My mom just emailed me and told me she talked to my ex. He will be, in fact, attending. I am in shock. This will be his first one. He has never been to one as long as both my kids have been in school. The IEP is to discuss a possible placement to a new school, difficult child's grades (D's and F's) and her lack of attendance. Ex has always blamed me in the past for difficult child's failing grades and he is going to find out tomorrow that she is indeed failing again this year. He will also be finding out just how much school she is missing. difficult child has missed three days so far this week due to a cold. My mom took her to the doctors so we do have a dr. note that excuses her from school until she is better. Of course difficult child is milking this for all it's worth and she's been complaining of symptoms even though she really is well enough to go to school. He is going to be upset when he realized that she's been staying home. We have the dr. note, but still, he will be upset. I am getting paranoid that when he hears how she is doing in school he is going to go ahead with his plans and take me to court. difficult child already stated that he told her that if she misses more school, he is going to gain custody. I am very nervous for tomorrow. Just being in the same room with him gives me anxiety to no end. I wish I had more Xanax to help me through it but I'm out. I will just have to deal with it. I hope I can sleep tonight. Wish me luck please I really do need it.
