catch us by surprise. I'm so very proud of kt lately. As a blooming young lady, she is definitely giving us a run for our money I'll give you that. The ups & downs; the little girl days & the typical teen days (did you hear that? typical teen). I had to point that out to husband yesterday. That kt is being a typical teenage girl, with all the dramas, mood swings & need for hugs from daddy. In the meantime, husband is losing his everloving mind. I feel sorry for him lately - I get over it quickly. After school yesterday kt asked if we could talk - she had planned out her future & wanted to talk about it with husband & myself. She's decided that she will need day treatment until the end of sophomore year (day treatment currently has her placed in 8th grade); at that point she wants to finish out the last 2 years of school in a mainstream setting. "Mom, I started my first 2 school years in mainstream - I want to finish in mainstream. If I don't work toward this I'm going to regret it" Really didn't know what to say to my baby (?) girl/budding young woman. I don't know what today or tomorrow may bring, but I sure enjoyed that conversation last night & recorded it in my kt journal.
