being a parent is not always easy. Especially when it comes under the category of "doing it for their own good"
After Evan left this morning, I came into the kitchen to find this
Yep, that is his lunch bag.
And why don't I just run it up to school for him you ask?
Because it is a goal that he is working on, and truthfully been doing a great job at it!
Part of his issues with ADHD have been executive functioning issues. Organization, remembering to turn in assignments, etc... He has come a long way because it has been the big goal for this school year.
But occasionally there is a forgotten item. Or something that needs organizing :)
He is given one chance for me to bring lunch up to him at school for the school year.
After that, it is a peanut butter sandwich from the cafeteria.
He has not had to do that all year. Until today.
I am so tempted to just run it up there! But I won't.
It would not be fair to either of us in the long run.
And I guarantee you tomorrow he will not forget his lunch.
It happens. I know. But these are the moments we learn from.
And as a parent, I have to know when I need to stick with the plan and when I can be flexible.
But knowing at some point he is going to go to grab his lunch and find it's not there, just makes me feel bummed. He is going to be disappointed. Especially since one of daddy's famous chocolate chip, peanut butter cookies is in there.
On another note, I thought Madonna did a great job with the half time show during the superbowl. It was the only thing I watched and the commercial for "The Voice". Which made no sense to me until I saw a little bit of The Voice last night :) But Madonna. Wow! Brought back some good memories of songs I loved when I was younger.
And finally, this is a card I made for ScrapGal this month. I chose all My Mind's Eye product this month. For this card, I decided to cut up this paper...
Hope you have a great Monday!
