Like This Wasn't Destined To Happen...

Yesterday I started out the post about Aidan's first day with Today is a day I've been dreading for 3 years now - Aidan's first day of Kindergarten. And then I blathered on about how he did so well and how he loved it and bullshit bullshit bullshit.


Um, turns out there was good reason to dread the day. Or any day where Aidan is expected to act like a normal human child. If we were hyenas we'd be fucking golden!


Day 2 was a bust. At 1pm I get a call from the school. I'm still too angry to get into details but just read a few of the Legendary Aidan BS posts. It's all the same old shit really. He spent the rest of the day in his room that had been stripped of anything he could possibly have fun with. I feel the need to defend my parenting by saying all the things I've done to punish him but screw that. I guess it's obviously I get an F in that subject.


FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok enough of this crappy momma shit, you are a great momma and SB is a great daddy! There is always tomorrow and I know tomorrow will be a much better day. I wish there was something more convincing I could say or for that matter do.

I am not sure what sort of behavioral problems he has, but I hope things look up soon. Scott acted up a lot as a child due to his ADHD. Maybe it's something like that? I always got in trouble in school for talking too much. LOL. Always. Every report card was like, "Great grades. Helpful to classmates. Well liked. But, talks too much. Needs to keep the chatter for lunch or recess." So, I am not sure if it's an actual problem or something he will grow out of, but I hope things get better for you with him.

i think the serial killers are the ones who behave well and fit right in and hide their true thoughts...you have an interesting, creative, high-spirited kid and why not, look who his mama is!
:still, hoping today goes better:

Pretty sure yesterday was "National Go ApeShit for Mom" day. Really wish they would have sent out a memo.

I'm laughing at the above comment by "L" ... she's right, how many times have you heard "but he was such a nice man? I wouldn't have expected him to kill all those people and eat them for dinner" ... (blame that comment on the Mr. would be sexy if...) ...

I know how you feel because I have one of those kids, seems like no matter what I do to try to get him to correct his behavior - nothing works! It's hard when you teach them and teach them and teach them and it does no good. Sometimes, we just have to realize that they are their own person and we can't change some things, all we can do is continue what we do and hope that some day it actually sinks in.

.... though, most days, it's often doubtful...

{{{HUGS}}} You are a great mom, you care - it obvious - those who don't care and just blow it off, are the ones to worry about...

I too have taken every toy out of Bly's room and left him nothing to play with and it really got his attention so to speak because when I say I'm going to get a garbage bag he's pretty much putty in my hand. So hopefully it will work for you too! Please post another blog about whether it did or not work not to mention what he may or may not have done.

I agree with the above "serial killers" show good behavior comment. It seems as if the school's are always asking the kids to accommodate them... and from all the mom's of boys I've spoken to, it sounds very different than with girls. He sounds normal as all get out to me - and probably testing the waters a little? I hope day 3,4 and 5 get better.

Well, I read the post about Mr. Asshole before I read this one, so I KNOW it is not your fault... so don't you worry... Aidan will be fine, and you will work it out, and will find the right fit for him. If you have to talk to the superintendant of schools. Hold your ground, mama!!

Just because you have not found the reason does not mean there isn't one. These "kids" we have do not come with a manual, so stop beating yourself up. Perhaps it is time to seek outside help? It might help to get a better handle on what's going on.

I say this as one who did and was so glad for the help. This does not mean drugs, but you may need to research and talk to other moms. I did and found a testing clinic. Found out about our daughters "Frustration level" was due in part to having dyslexia!
