Things aren’t peachy. Things aren’t perfect. But, one thing is for sure. I want to take my pillow and scream into it right now! Better yet, I want to get a punching bag and go a few rounds. As a matter of fact (I am going to look on Amazon to price a few).
My boys are in public school. One is In The 2nd grade, the other in kindergarten. While my youngest is ONLY in kindeegarten, his behavior is extraordinary. Everyday, my youngest comes home from school with a sad face written by his teacher on what he did that was not appropriate. I gave her the heads up in the beginning to let her know what to expect. He is a loving child, but is always on the go. Honestly, this isn’t a mother making an excuse for her son, but I truly believe he cannot help himself. Then we have my 2nd grader. He is doing great, but has his weaknesses. He forgets his homework, OFTEN! Now today, these reports came to me . Just as I realized that CT was avoiding doing his homework, and SJ, was avoiding brining me his book, I knew something was up.
I didn’t even yell, once I received the news. For what? I just sat there and stared at them both. (Poker face) they can’t read me when I do that. I felt Defeat, frustration, and angry thoughts on their dad flared up and it messed up whole my mood. I attempt to tell myself often, you cannot make someone do anything they don’t want to do, AND, “wow he doesn’t have to deal with any of this”. When those / that thought came to mind, I almost did. But I didn’t. I just had to talk to God. God, I am doing my best, what do I with these kids? I’ve tried everything. Rather than stress myself out, please helps me, give me clarity….
If any of you have any thoughts, please share! 😊
