charlie has the day off. he's taking daniel who also needs a day off to go set off his new model rocket. daniel deserves to play hooky today.
got a note from daniel's teacher. she had no idea the extent of his problems last year and has changed his behavior plan. she knew about the adhd but not about how very severe his depression and low-self esteem had been. she said she sees how very much daniel wants to do well and to please. THAT alone is a big thing for him. last year he didn't give a shit and was up front about the fact that he was a bad kid who only knew how to get in trouble.
my sweet son. wish he could see himself through our eyes. he's getting there though. he's definitely getting there. i truly believe it's going to be a much better year for him. will he ever know how my heart fills to the point of wanting to burst when i think of him? he deserves to succeed.
