Missy has been throwing a royal tantrum this morning because I had the audacity to sent her back to the barn to give her rabbit water - again. I checked up on her and a drip in the bottom of the rabbit dish won't cut it....
Really, this is a test.
Just a test.
She screamed it out in her room while we ate breakfast. It took all of 15 minutes to realize mom isn't going to panic and let her off the hook just because it is a school day. School is the most important thing in her life right now and she will be careful about that, I think..... I have to get James to his school on time regardless of what she does, though, and so it is tricky, since everyone else left the house at 6:30 this morning and I am on my own.
There is plenty of gas in the tank. If I have to drive her back home to finish up before I drive her to school, so be it.
Our English Language School was busting with new people last night. The church was FULL of people. Very fun. After the classes I found myself surrounded by teachers as we were cleaning up. One is a special ed teacher. She has worked with kids from trauma. I picked their brains last night, so I have some ideas. They said not to give in, but gave me some ways to try and move him out of the rut.
We shall see how it goes.
