v2.194: September 10th (Good Day for Mommies)

Yes, we had our first Parent/Teacher conference today about my son. School's been in less than a month and we're already being called in for a chat.

 

And while, all day, all last week since I knew this was coming, I was a nervous wreck about it. I was so afraid that they were going to tell us that our son had ADD and that they believed medication was the solution. I was so terrified of that because I knew that I would have to stand up and fight at that point.

 

But all of my fears were swept away in the first 10 minutes of the 45 minute meeting. There were positives said about my son. And whatever issues that the teacher and the behavioral specialist saw, they had thought of solutions that could all work on together.

 

We've never really had guidance when it comes to being parents. While we lived with my parents for 3 years, they played the grandparent role, not really the guiding hand for new parents. But it's so refreshing and so hopeful to have people now that want the best for our child like we do.

 

I left excited, rejuvinated and thrilled to try the new solutions that they'd given us. And I did try some, and already, they are working. Yay!

 

Today was a good day to be a mommy.
