Is there anything really harder for a parent than realizing they were wrong and thier kid was right, and that they reacted more like a kid and now owe thier offspring a huge appology.

It seems I made a mistake yesterday and totally over reacted to a homework situation, where I didn't believe (totally) what Warren told me, but let him have his way, thinking he would learn a lesson. I talked to his teacher and found out that he was telling me the truth the whole time. So now I owe HIM and appology.

His teacher is also impressed by how brilliant he is (I already knew that) and confirmed that she thought what I had been thinking and didn't say out loud. That part of the problem is that when he gets bored he acts up, and while he is behind in reading and writing skills, he is ahead in about everything else. So he is either bored or frustrated both of which cause him to act out. But so far this year (only three days granted) she said he has been wonderful.. Which is great.

The other day in the van we were talking, and I think this new program kinda of scared him a bit, becaue he mentioned that he thinks its time that this year he needs to "go straight mom". LOL. I hope he can do it, I know is able to, with work and patience. I just hope it lasts when the idiot comes back and tries to turn everything upside down. If I didn't think it would make matters worse for Warren I'd try to keep the idiot away from him. (At least away from me, when Warren is around).

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.
