easy child moved in with his dad last Friday. Despite telling his grandmother that when it came down to it, he would refuse to go, he left without any hassle. I have been in contact with him all this week through texting. easy child is not very good about talking on the phone. I can barely get a word out of him that way, but he is an avid texter. So that is how we have been keeping in touch with each other. This morning around 10:45 I texted him to see what he was up to. He is on spring break right now and won't be starting the new school till Monday. He texted me back saying he was bored. I asked him what he was doing, and he responded that he was laying in bed with nothing to do. Apparently his stepmother likes to sleep in till noon every day. She told him that he is not allowed out of his room until she wakes up. easy child is an early riser. He is usually awake by 8 or 9. So he is stuck inside his room for at least several hours with nothing to do. He is not allowed to go in and turn on the tv. Worse yet is he is not allowed to get anything to eat. So easy child tells me today that he is starving and has to wait till little miss princess wakes up to have breakfast. Most days he skips breakfast because by the time she wakes up it's lunch time. So easy child hasn't been eating well. Well hearing that my son is waiting for hours just to eat his first meal of the day really burned me up. I texted his dad and told him to call or text easy child and give him permission to go into the kitchen and get himself something to eat. About ten minutes later easy child texts me to tell me that stepmom finally woke up and gave him some breakfast. I am hoping my intervening put a stop on this skipping breakfast BS permanently. It is not okay for my son to go several hours without food while her heiness is getting her beauty rest. easy child keeps telling me he wants to come home. He is coming for a visit this weekend. I miss him already and I can't wait to see him. It is going to be hard on the both of us when he has to leave again on Sunday. And I am really worried about him starting the new school on Monday. I have faxed over his IEP to his new counselor so they already have it. They are going to observe him for 30 days then we will have a meeting to discuss his placement. I hope this new school is as accomodating as his old school. And then there is the friend issue. easy child doesn't make friends easy and I feel bad that he has to start all over again in a new school without any friends. So I am hoping and praying he can at least find one buddy to hang around with and eat lunch with. I remember when I was in high school and my best friend moved away. For several months I had nobody to eat lunch with and I felt so awkward and alone. It makes me tear up thinking about easy child having to go through the same thing. So hopefully he does make at least one friend. I am already feeling a bit guilty for sending him to his dad's. Hopefully it will all work out for the best. I am really looking forward to spending Easter with my son and I can't wait to see him. Just wish I didn't have to send him back but it's what I chose to do and I am going to have to live with it. Till then I will enjoy every single moment I have to spend with him.
