I’ve been getting some really positive feedback for the first Parent to Parent episode. If you’ve not listened, you can do so by clicking here or stream it where you get your podcasts.
Waking up to tons of positive feedback and parents wanting to take part is pretty amazing. It feels good to have a positive impact on peoples lives. Thank you everyone for all the support.
The second quarter started today and I’m hoping that it will be better than the first quarter. Remote learning is a huge change from being in the classroom and the boys are struggling with it. It’s not just them, it’s pretty much most, if not all of the kids are having similar struggles.
There’s been homework that never got turned in and we’re working on getting caught up.
While the boys do well otherwise, homework matters as well and we need to really buckle down. The boys are responsible for their own work but I’ve been spread so thin that I wasn’t keeping up with things the way I should have been. That doesn’t absolve them of personal responsibility but I need to do better as well.
They’ve been working hard to get everything caught up and Lizze is helping from a distance to make sure we know what needs to be done and she’s helping keep the kids focused, especially while I’m trying to work.
I know there are those who will criticize me for dropping the ball and you know what, I’m out of shits to give. Does it bother me? Sure. Will I lose sleep over it? Not a chance.
Special needs parents don’t usually judge each other because we know what it’s like.
Judging someone when you’ve not walked a mile in their shoes is wrong to begin with, but it’s especially shitty when they’ve zero special needs parenting experience.
Anyway, it’s been a pretty great day. Nothing spectacular happened but at the same time, nothing catastrophic did either. I got my workout in and the kids in bed on time. Recorded a great interview and played a few games of UNO with Emmett.
I feel like it’s been a good day and I’m grateful for that.
