I have a special needs child myself. I certainly think his person will appreciate you. Great job. Perhaps someone else will notice and speak up and tell people the teacher doesn't deserve the credit. You do.

That's not gonna happen for a while; he needs a break.
Won't go into details but it's not his first mistake.
He will not be happy but at least he'll be alive.
Life is so much scarier since our son learned to drive.
In my home, he's be driving when he can afford a car AND insurance. At the absolute least, he's have to pay the rate increase for adding him AND the increase due to the accident.
i believe most kids are more careful when it's their own money -- earned money, not gifted.
Ha, ha, ha, not nadine it is a sticker that smells of either apples, cola, bubblegum, peppermint etc. He's never had one that smells before so he is very excited about getting one. Sometimes its the simple things that gets results.
Most of you don't know (or realistically, care ), but my husband and I have split up. I don't need pity, I am the one that initiated it, and while sure, it sucks, ultimately I think it was the right decision.
ANYways, he is being stupid and vindictive and just an all around asshat.
5 weeks after moving out, he had a date. A FRICKIN FRACKIN DATE! This date came roughly 30 hours after telling me he thinks we can still work things out and that this break may be good for us, blah blah blah. My feelings were hurt, not that he had a date, but that it was so soon- especially so soon after his (obviously bs spiel).
If that wasn't enough, our daughters had invited my best friend to the school carnival. He caught wind of it and told me that if she went, he wasn't going to. They have grown up with her, she is like a family member to them, and they really like her. He thought that it should be "family only", so in the name of civility, I asked her not to come, which hurt her feelings and makes me feel like a bad friend.
Now he wants to have a "talk". I think what he is going to say is that instead of our current custody system (alternating bi-weekly flips where one of us has the kids during the school week and the other has the weekends), he is going to want to be a every other weekend kind of dad. Without going into details, the current system does make it harder on him, but this is HIS system, so he can deal with it. But you know what, if I get our kids all the time, I am happy with that. But the girls will miss him like crazy- he is their dad and this is hard enough when they see us both equally. I'm pretty sure that if he proposes the change I think he will, I am going to have to brain him with a lamp. Like 6 times...
Just remember he is the one making his choices. Later, the girls will see that for themselves. Enjoy your girls and well replace the lamp frequentily as it may be needed again. Hope things become easier for you. Keep your head high.
