Greatest Mom Award

My son hated me last night.  Know how I know?  Cause he screamed it at me… Know why he hated me? Because the sun went down before he was ready for it to and somehow I have control over that. I said he and H could have reading time while I got the baby to sleep.  He started in about the world and how it is against him and I suck and, and, and…I felt SO bad that he chose to do that and sweetly said “lights out for you buddy”.  I got the door slam and the hate scream.  I ran and alarmed his door pretty quickly after – I am such a wussy!!  Today?  Today he is following me around with hugs and loves me.  WTH??



  1. never a dull moment in your house. when are we going to see each other?

  2. I just started reading your Blog that I found off of Lisa’s Bloggs. I haven’t been able to go back too too far but I think I have the gist of what you are up against. I have two children of my own, who are typical (if anyone can be “typical”!!) but I have worked in the social services/mental health field forever. I currently work in my local school district as a Behavior Specialist mainly focusing on the elementary population right now. I only get a glimps of what parents like you see all day, day-in and day0out. I know how difficutl my job so I can’t imagine what you’s is like. So I guess I just want to say thank you for loving your children and doing everything you can to change their path in life. Parenting is hard any way you look at it, but to choose to have children with emotional/mental health issues….well…I’m not sure I know the words to describe that kind of courage. Thank you for everything you do!

  3. Hmmm….I think your son and mine are long lost identical twins since I think that scene played out around here on the same night. Of course, he was velcro for the next day and a half…. Mine also said we are a “freak” family. I kinda agreed…

    You are a great mom. Don’t forget it.
