I have achieved something that I havent been able to achieve for a few weeks now.
My elder daughter. Who has been suffering immensely from woes of the teenage variety (you know the kind, the ones that force you to treat your mother like the enemy) and other afflictions (we know not which). Has managed to make it through a day without losing her shit.
Her mother (that would be me) has also gotten through a day without losing her shit, or indeed, leaking from the eyes. MUCH GOODEST!!!
Not only that, strides have been made at her institution of education that have supported her and made her mother very happy.
Oh... what a good day.
I feel such a huge relief also. I have been battling my own stuff and trying not to make trouble and supporting traumatised teens and it has all been blowing up in my face regularly.
I am too sensitive and tend to get myself too involved. I am stepping back now and looking after me more. (can you hold me to that... please. I know me)
three steps forward today, without even a hint of a backwards one... WOO HOO
In other news...
My son, the 8yo computer whizz, has created a you tube clip on some pokemon thingy. I think it is sooo cute. He worked this out all by himself and did it all without rehearsal or instruction. He is SUCH a 'Generation Z' kid. Here is the link. If you go and look at it, can you please make a comment or rate it as good or something.. will make his day. :D thank you.
