Today started out rough. Bad mood on his behalf. Once we got the siblings off to school, he was fine. Spent the morning playing and looking for the homework pile that mom put together for us. Never did find it.
In the afternoon we went into the city for an appointment for me. Grandpa was nice enough to host our son for the two hours I needed to go to my appointment. Everything went like clockwork.
Trying to get all of the players together to meet with the school district about his return to public school. I think that it would be easier to get a job at the circus working as a lion tamer. Very frustrating. In the meantime, in order to keep the district in compliance, we need to complete some paperwork that says we are home schooling our son. We aren’t home schooling him because we want to, we are home schooling him because the school refuses to allow him to return. Very frustrating.
On a side note, when we went to give him his meds tonight, we discovered that he had eaten most a jar of chewable gummy multi-vitamins today. Guess he doesn’t need any vitamins for a while. On another note, he had to take a time out for lying about eating them. We called poison control just in case we needed to be worried about something. While it isn’t recommended, there really isn’t a lot that can be done about it. If he had just taken them, we could induce vomiting, but think that would be rather traumatic and a bit over the top.
Major kudos to the staff from the residential facility that he was recently discharged from. They called three times today to see how things are going. When our son finally goes back to public school, they will offer supports there as well. Now to convince the school to let him back. That is the key.
