This week is already thrown off and it is Monday. I’m bracing for the behavior that results from being so thrown off schedule.
I am working on a Monday. The kids are off tomorrow, which means a a day of parenting with little sleep, which required extra ammounts of patience. We skipped homework this evening so we also have that to do tomorrow. Ryan has his PDD diagnosis Wednesday, which means he will be out of school most, if not all of the day. Ryan then has a field trip Thursday which is his first this year.
This is too much like spring break. That took three weeks of super consistent parenting to get back on track. This is the first week they are giving us more homework at night, and less on the weekend. Next week they will give us even more homework at night and even less on the weekend.
It kills me. Last week for the first time Ryan did not totally fail a test. He has four tests a week. He usually does well on two or three of the test and gets anywhere from a zero to a fifty on the other. Last week for the first time Ryan recieved two A’s and two B’s on the tests. For him this was huge, he and I jumped up and down with excitement. Our study methods have been adjusted refined and we found what is working for him. Yes, my boy who takes a but longer to learn stuff was starting to really succeed and they had to change the rules arbitrarily. I am just becomming so bitter about it.
