Things haven't gone as hoped and to be honest I don't know what to do next. We are at an important crossroads. I want to race straight ahead to the future but he's just not ready. So, today I am making a turn, taking a detour, asking for directions and assistance.
I've worn the blinders of motherly hope and love for so long, wanting to believe that this would resolve itself. But....it hasn't. I'm scared now as we hurtle along towards hormones and changing classes and lockers and those angst ridden years marked with the word "teen".
He has everything he needs to succeed. All the pieces and parts are present. Making them fit together and stay together is elusive at best. It is heartbreaking to watch. It's worse to not be able to fix it.
So, we are inviting someone else in. Making room for some new ideas. Taking a different route that will hopefully lead us to a good place.
