Um…I am a seizure-inducingly boring spod??? :wah:

I got an interesting little note in the mail today. Seems that Gregory is in danger of failing four (yes, thats right, FOUR) classes due to not doing homework.
Excuse me? I’m a little confused. I check on his homework every night, and he has good grades on all the papers he brings home to show me. He got almost all A’s and B’s on his last report card. The last grade was a C- and it was because of homework issues, and I THOUGHT we had worked through all of that. So something is wrong here in Townsville, and it seems like it is happening in my own backyard. Guess who will be calling the school on Monday? I bet you can’t guess.
He’s SO grounded. There is a computer game that he has been obsessed with lately that I know he has been playing a lot at the Boys and Girls Club. So they now know that he is not to be playing that unless he shows them ALL of his homework. And it’s back to signing his agenda every day. *sigh* I know he is going through a lot, and this is what has kept me from not cracking down hard on him, but this is ridiculous and unacceptable.
I feel like such a crappy mother right now.

Spread the love

Very strange how that took such a quick turn. Are you sure they are talking about your Gregory? What’s it’s a week after Holidays?? How can they say he’s even failing yet. The last report card wasn’t that long ago…
I wouldn’t worry about it too much, it’ll get worked out I’m sure.
OH!!!! Guess what I go the mailon Wednesday? Seasons Greetings

I can only imagine how you could be feeling. You aren’t a crappy mother, you’re a mother who cares.

This is the part I didn’t like about being a single mom. Every little note like that made me beat myself senseless. Or, maybe I wanted to. I felt that it was all my fault.
I don’t know what to say that will help. I never did get it all figured out. I”m just REALLY REALLY glad that my kids are out of school now and I don’t have to dread those little notes anymore.
Hang in there…..
