Back to School…

So this year not only will my crew be going back to school, but I will be joining them. My daughter will be in her senior year and taking some college credit course so when she does graduate she can have a dual graduation. My son will be going to 1 grade!!! First year fully potty trained!!! And last but certainly not least, I will be going for my associates degree. Now I have a few credits under my belt, pre pregnancy with my daughter.

My job is offering one class at work, one will be on the college campus. I can take more courses as well.

Hopefully we can all put thru this year with flying colors.

Mood

Some decisions are hard to make but they are extremely neccessary. My daughter and I have been bumping heads, mainly because she has decided that being disrespectful is her new wave. As any good parent, that is unacceptable. So when she tip toes over that line, I march her right back over that line. I have realized that she shows everyone else respect. So what’s her issue with me?

Now I know I have pull your guys coat tail to an issue that had arise with her and we are dealing with that. Among those things I have got her seeing a therapist to help her deal with these issue and issue with her self esteem.

Also, during this time I have been going through it. Processing all this and dealing with my own depression issues. While seeking someone to help me deal with everything. One being a single mom, really dealing with my mom’s death, my grandmother, my son being diagnosed with Autism, and teenagers and for a good while taking care of someone else’s child without proper help. Work issues to boot. A lot right, I’m broken.

So with home life things got to be way too much and my daughter isn’t helping the situation. After talking to her dad, we decided she needs to go with him for a few weeks. Hopefully that will help her get her act together.

I’m a crossroads, knowing this is the best thing. Not wanting to make things worst and hoping we have time to heal ourselves, deal with these issues and come back together and get back to our mother/daughter relationship we are used to.

Going home today knowing she isn’t there is weird. Part of me feels like less of a mom. I’m use to her being there. Only gone for a few days.. hopefully this decision helps and doesn’t back fire.

Summer Camps

The way these summer camps are coming, you’d think I was putting a deposit down on buying a house or car! Lawd!!

Now most of you know my son is autistic so the thought of sending him to any old summer camp is a no go for me. I have to send to a camp suited for his needs.

As a mom, knowing camps fill up fast I have to get a jump start on it and apply for assistance to help pay for camp. Thankfully, my daughter will be working this year a real job. I only have to pay for one, but boy is it expensive.

Looking for camps for children with disabilites is hard enough let alone one that is close. Especially, since I don’t drive and I need to get there quickly.

I realize they need more camps close that have staff that can work with all types of children.

I’m not even gonna say how much this camp is just pray that I get the help I need. Lawd knows I’m not balling like that! 😂😂😂
