Given mytendencies (and my husband completely agrees), I *should* be finishing up an e-mail to my son’s right about now. But…can I just say the past month or so has been a constant stream of phone calls, meetings & e-mails to various teachers, counselors, etc. & I needed a time out for just a moment. I’m actually going to write something as opposed to posting random vids & fashion dream pics.
Middle school sucks (for my son, OK well for everyone I know of)! I don’t think anyone enjoyed that phase in their lives – I know I sure as hell didn’t. Hormones, cliques, self-image issues, bullies (I won’t name names here, but you know who you are – remember? We ran track together. Bitch(es)…) Of course those bitches are probably serving time now (or living in a low rent trailer park with their wife-beater wearing husbands)…I love the Internet – and yes, I am *EVIL*… So along with all these wonderful growing pains, my son has ADHD & ODD to top it all off. Oh, and well into puberty now according to his Ped. Nice… It’s been quite a ride since he started last year – which put him in . Really?? Kids not only have entirely overloaded academic expectations since I was that age, many years ago *cough*, but they throw them into the “middle school” setting in 5th grade…Unreal. It sucks enough when you’re 12/13 & in 7th grade. But, 10? Ridiculous.
OK, I feel better now…Feel free to share your own middle school nightmares…(past or present)
