Thank you so much for the swell of kindness yesterday regarding Monkey’s Next Big Adventure. It gave me all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings to know so many folks are behind my kiddo, even if most of you do live inside the shiny box on my desk.
I don’t necessarily want to belabor the process, here, because I know not everyone is interested in all the nitty gritty details, but if you ARE, today at Alpha Mom you can check out the extended dance remix version of how/why we made this happen. And it’s all fine! Good! Perfect! I will just be over here breathing into this paper bag just for fun.
We’re looking into the potential-maybe-Ithinkso possibility of moving Joseph from our hippie school to homeschooling.
I’m nearly frozen in terror by… well… everything, especially considering how in California now, all school-aged mental health services, including medication, is controlled by the school districts.
Also – in regards to the list thing from yesterday? While we’re not at a place we can leave the kids alone for an evening… I get it. I still have to check in sneaky ways to see if basic hygiene is being looked after – while at an age where mom seeing them naked is akin to chopping off one of those naked parts. I’m a little afraid of what my list is going to look like when we feel we’re at that point.
I’m catching up here, as Life has gotten in the way of blog reading for me, as of late. (Hate it when that happens.)
I’m so happy for you (and Monkey)! I am definitely one of those people behind you and your kiddo– I’ve been reading long enough to remember when you were just beginning to understand his challenges and to worry what it meant for him in the years to come. And now, the years HAVE come, and your baybee is off to high school! What a feeling! (oh, the FEELINGS!)
One thing is for sure: you will all find your way. It will work, or it won’t, or it will sorta work, for a while at least, until you find what does actually work, but Monkey has the best team behind him, and he will find his way. Go Team Monkey!
