A Wow Mommy Moment
You know those Mom Days when you really think boarding school sounds really good? I had one of those yesterday with my oldest DS. He got in trouble because he let his grades slip…which on my radar is a pretty high offense. This is a song and dance I have done regularly with this child as he isn’t crazy about the whole book learning part of school (the social scene is a totally different thing, trust me he is really good at that…) So yesterday I pulled out the big guns and laid down some pretty hefty consequences that I intend to stand behind. He got mad…heck, if I were 15.... I would have gotten mad too.
But this afternoon, after he did his homework, he came into my office and said the words that almost took my breath away. He said, “Thanks for caring.” Of course, I was stunned and ask about what and then he said, “About my school and all.”
Wow, just wow……
