Bad mood because we've been a one-car family while Josh's car has been getting some much-needed repairs. It stresses me out, makes me snippy, and overall it just sucks figuring out everyone's schedules with only one car.
I'm cranky because I forgot to send eggs with Brian to school today so he could dye them. Just pass over that "Mother of the Year" award over to me.
I'm crabby because I thought for sure I had the boys for Easter this year and then when I checked our court order I realized it is their fathers year to have them. Now I have to reschedule the whole April vacation the day before it starts and hope he goes along with it.
I'm in a horrible mood because yesterday I had a parent-teacher conference and I was told again that Corbin can't spell words because he "doesn't want to try" when we've had FOUR different evaluations by FOUR different professionals that all say he has phonological awareness and auditory processing deficits. Couldn't that possibly be why he can't sound out and spell words?
I'm really frustrated because though Corbin's making great progress in math and slow but steady progress in reading, he actually went DOWN in writing/spelling since the fall.
I've been giving myself a guilt-trip since Corbin's OT evaluation last week that told me he basically doesn't have a single integrated reflex (okay I might be exaggerating a little, but not a lot). Why?? Could I have done something different when he was a baby?
I'm throwing myself a pity party because I just want to have one, just one, "typical" kid. Then I'm kicking myself in the ass for even thinking along that line.
I'll try to counteract this with a post of the positive things (because there really were a lot in the same time period) within the next couple of days. But for now I'll wallow in my bad mood with a glass of wine.
