Maybe I did something right after all

Despite such a bad begining the rest of the day wasnt' all that bad. My meeting with Warren's teacher went pretty good. I got his test results back, and it confirms what I suspected he is weak on skills like short term memory, and copying patterns, and coding, but off the scale on skills like verbal comprehension, vocabulary, and reasoning.

They've also noticed that he has improved greatly both in behavior and acadmics but he still has a way to go. We also talked about possibilties for next year which will be different from the previous elementary years because they will be preparing them for middle school when they reach 6th grade. There is also the possibility of him being in a pilot program with a self contained classroom which I think may be the best placement for him, until he is a bit more ready to adapt and deal with the pressures that he will face when middle school hits.

I also met with the worker from Access and I think we have a (hopefully) workable plan for disapline at home. I have a parent training meeting tommorrow. I was supposed to go to one last winter, but my van had other ideas.

Mike also been trying to call me, I have all these pay phone calls on my caller ID, and messages on my machine from a collect caller. Doesn't take much to put 2 and 2 together.

Warren doesn't know, and I'm not sure how to tell him. I know I can't lie to him, but he has enough issues and pain right now. Poor kid.

Even with all the crap and darkness, every now and then I find there is still a light. My son is supposed to write a paragraph on a hero for school. When I checked his notebook tonight, while going thru his back pack I found this. Its only the begining but I was ready to cry right then and there. Maybe I am doing someting right after all. (spelling and grammer mistakes are all his, preserved for posterity):

My mom the hero.

I think my mom is a hero becos she's always there for me. Wen I was in Prairie she alwas visited me every day. Wen the car hit me, my mom left work as soon as she heard. she came to help righ away.
Its only a beginning, but I think its beautiful.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
