Too Good To Last Part 2.....

You know yesterday when I posted that so far the bipolar wonder had been doing great at school, that he would shortly there after have an issue arise. God how I hate it when I am right.

So I got the first phone call of the year. Damn it all to hell.

The issue today?

Writing. The same freaking issue as ever. They take a small issue and fertilize it until it grows into a heaping pile of shit. Now I understand that he must learn how to write. I get that. But I also know that one has to pick and choose ones battle. This should never make it to the huge issue it has become.

So on Monday like I had originally planned, I will have to call the school and get the ball rolling for an IEP, so they don't punish my child for being ill. Sigh.

I was so hoping to avoid all of this shit, but alas it seems to be my fate to be constantly bombarded by big huge helpings of smelly unavoidable shit.

I am not happy.

Robyn,
I'm loving the new look!

I hope all goes well with the issue between your son and the school (I hope it can become a non-issue.) Let me know if you need any info, advice or whatever dealing with the IEP. It sucks when teachers choose to fight a battle they know they can avoid. Unfortunately, it's often a losing one for them and they become resentful. I hope this doesn't happen. Good Luck!
