This is the third week of school, and I have been called by the school again. The only week we missed was the first. This is getting old. So far these matters are dinky compared to other calls last year. Last week difficult child was caught kicking bikes and scooters at the bike rack. Some adult came up and told him to knock it off (not in those words) and he looked at them and said it's not my property, why do I care? Isn't that a great response? The principal is looking for the owner of the scooter (guess is has the most damage) and we may have to pay the damages. It will come out of difficult child's allowance, but at this point I cannot even afford to give allowances!!!! Today, difficult child was bringing in the balls from PE, another boy was opening and closing the door. difficult child finally got thru. Could he just go put the balls away? He was in the building, it would have been easy. Not for him. He pushed the kid, who then tackled him. I believe all he missed was recess, no suspension or anything. Why is this bugging me so much? He has been suspended before, there was talk about him being expelled at one point. This is piddly stuff compared to past things. I am ready to lose it. Between easy child acting like a difficult child, difficult child at home acting like a easy child and acting like who knows what at school, then add in husband's health problems and all the financiall s#***, I am just ready to hide from the world. husband is getting his tonsils out in October, I have been seriously thinking about taking difficult child up to OHSU for a neuropsychologist evaluation. This is all big stuff to me. The neuropsychologist evaluation is huge. I would probably try to schedule it during spring break, but the expense will be huge. Food lodging and gas will be big, not to mention the cost of the test. I just want to go for a walk in the woods and cry. Not an option right now. Thanks to those who made it this far.
