difficult child never came home this afternoon and now I wonder if he even went tos chool. I hate cell phones- you never know where the kid really is with them. Anyway, mentor came and went- a day late and a dollar short as the saying goes. I tried to call the phone number of this cell phone difficult child has about 3 different times today and there's never any answer- the battery might be dead- he could be half way to FL- who knows. Soooooo....police are on their way to take a report on a runaway/missing juveniloe on parole. They wouldn't have taken it seriously if I'd called last night. When he was in 6th grade and on probation they laughed about me doing this over him not coming home from school- and they turned out to be right. Let's hope they are right this time, too. Have I mentioned that we are the talk of the neighborhood but no one wants to talk to us? Oh- mentor wanted to know if I'd told PO about difficult child's violations; PO had said to discuss difficult child's violations with mentor. Gotta love the system.
