Is it Fair?
So as an update to Baby steps part 2.
She decided not to bring up Saturday School. Its an optional program whereby if you have absences, one half day at the school (doing homework or missed assignments) on a Saturday will make up one day of absence.
SD 16 Snotty Mcpoutersulk (thank you!) has 8 just in September. Supposedly because shes "sore" from the move and was allowed to stay home. Anyway not my circus to manage. Except this "soreness" is leading Toxic Troll the Disease Chaser, to want her to go to Dr for multiple tests including lupus imaginaria.
Ok. Well so whats up for Saturday? Well, last night SD16 SMPS asks if she can get dropped off. Apparently her friends all want to go to local Rennaissance Fair. I have not been able to go because short on money and all that real stuff intruding. So she asked if she can do chores to have money for the fair today. And be dropped off at her friends house.
He is going fishing.
I sat there by his side, and just looked at my phone, silently. Remembering that I had offered to drop her off for the Saturday school and she had brushed me off.
She pouted when he told her that he would not be available to do a drop off, and that our house was actually on the way to the location.
EGADS. Well I am almost done with my morning coffee and SD16 Snotty McPouterSulk is in her room. Shes been acknowledging me in a friendly way so we are on superficially good terms. Thanks everyone for the reinforcement of disengagement. It truly helped, and its an ongoing journey...
