So far so good with this being a mom thing. Of course, school hasn't started so I haven't had to get up early or figure out how to pick him up from the bus stop or make sure his homework is done. I haven't even had a full day of work since before Christmas. Next week is going to be tough.
I have been making dinners but he has been on his own for breakfast and lunch. I bought bacon for the first time in a long time. Turns out he doesn't like bacon. Oh well, more for me.
I took Friday off and managed to find my way to the courthouse to turn in the guardianship paperwork. It will be around 6 weeks before I have to go to court. I can't forget to do my online how-to-be-a-guardian training. I wonder if there will be a test? Just kidding.
The wipe off board is working well for chores that change daily. Today's chores were: Take holey socks out of drawer. Take last semester's work out of binder. Tell me if you need school supplies. And lastly, have Skype tutoring with his aunt. He has a research paper that is an all-year project and they are getting started with tutoring by reviewing what he has done so far.
One more day of leisure time and then we jump right in to a full week of work and school. Let the games begin!
There will be ups and downs but basically once he has consistency and structure then you are on the way.
