I am an assistant all day at work.
I answer calls.
I make up excuses why my boss makes mathematical errors.
I set up appointments.
I keep him organized and on track, keep the office stocked.
Then I go home.
And I swear I am Max's assistant.
I set up appointments.
Phone calls with teachers and doctors.
Make excuses for him as to why he forgets everything.
Make dinner and keep the cabinets stocked with food.
I am tired of being everybody's assistant, I swear.
The kid is still struggling with school and homework, which just means more calls from school and more meetings with teachers who talk to me like I am one of the kids...sheesh.
But hopefully (pray!) things will calm down soon because there is only so much this mom can handle.
We're having trouble sleeping these days too, which makes the days even more of a struggle.
School stress is keeping him up at night, or maybe it is this....
Max and I went to the Thrift store this weekend in search of Halloween costumes and it was 1/2 price weekend...Score!
We found tons of spooky stuff to add to our house for that whole creepy Halloween decor.
Max found that cool clock candelabra and it was only 50 cents.
We almost bought a bunch of Barbie dolls to dismember and place in glass beekers, but I decided that this baby doll was scary enough.
Max wants to remove an eye and bleach her, not sure where he got that idea.
But it would probably make it even creepier.
Yep, we are twisted like that.
I also finished up a huge project for this Owl Swap I was in and sent it off, I would show you but then it would ruin the surprise for my partner, so you'll have to settle for some pages.
That's my nephew's nickname, 1/2 man 1/2 amazing.
He uses it for gaming and stuff.
He got it from wrestling although Max thought he made it up himself.
Almost all of it is Dude Designs, love that paper.
And here's my brother juggling and Max being Max.
I feel like this page is missing something, but I made it about 2 weeks ago and have decided to just let it go.
Know that feeling?
So, if there are any other mom's out there struggling with school too, trying to make sense of "new math", fighting with kids to write definitions, attempting to decipher a kid-written assignment notebook....I'm with ya!
