Tough decisions and sleep deprivation :(

It’s been a long day, filled with tough decisions and sleep deprivation.  With Emmett being home from school once again, I made limited progress on the self-imposed Daddy-do-list.

I was able to get Gavin’s OT/PT evaluation rescheduled for next week.  Yay me…  🙂


I was also able to reach out to the adjudicator of Elliott’s SSI case because some of the needed paperwork hasn’t been received yet.  I could only leave a message but I should hear back by the end of the week. 

The progress really ended there. 

I also had the unpleasant task of having to deny some of the proposed changes to the boys visitation with their Mom. 

It was the right thing to do but this isn’t how I ever wanted things to be. 

If you would have told me 2 years ago that this is what I’d be doing today, I would never have believed you, not even for a moment.

I can’t imagine actually hating anything more than the position this has put me in.  It’s an unfair burden but one that I will carry out of love for my kids. 

Hopefully, I will not have to do this forever but as long as it’s necessary, that’s what I’ll do.

So what were the changes that you denied & to whom? Are you taking the “easy” way out & not giving mom & grandma what they deserve, want, need, so you didn’t have to deal with Elliott’s issues? In the last post you said you were going to do the changes enough that mom picked the kids up at home right after school. Are you still doing that or no changes at all?

From now on, I’m just going to respond to aggressive questions like this with the following.

Darcy, you have a nice day.

If you’d like me to honestly answer something, perhaps you could work on your approach and take a less accusatory tone. Otherwise, I tend to not take the question seriously.

Sorry for the long rant – I would hope you will read, so maybe you can better understand. I guess it’s a difference of opinion. You asked for everyone’s opinion, but once again, if they are different than yours you have issues. (This is not the first time you went on the defense and not just against me). I’m sorry the way I asked and the questions I asked insulted you. Guess I’m blunt and rude to you. That’s who I am. We are all different, Rob, and you have to accept those differences, especially if they go against you.… Read more »

Okay, I’m going to be as nice as I can. I’m not sure if you realize how silly you’re coming across. You have completely misread the post and have no idea what you’re talking about. Please read a little slower before climbing up on your high horse and accusing me of anything. The only thing that was denied was simply picking the kids up from school. That’s it. That decision was reach after lengthy discussion with Elliott and his therapist. This isn’t about meltdowns. This is about the emotional wellbeing of a traumatized child with special needs and frankly, I… Read more »

I don’t think Rob is taking the easy way out, I think he’s taking Elliott’s feelings into consideration. School is a safe and happy place for him, and having Lizze there ruins that. I’m never shy in my questions or criticisms of Rob, but I think you’re way off the mark with this one.

Thanks Kim. Coming from you that means a lot. smile

I completely agree with your decision. Visitation should benefit the child first and foremost and Elliot has been clear on his desires. And, you have carefully talked it out with the therapist involved. Nice job doing what is best for Elliot!
