Just another day, things almost break
This week we had relatively stress-less homework sessions..although it was only half way through the week, it was better than fighting all the small and silly issues.
But..as always, just when I let my guards down, things went down again. This time it was the rice cooker we use. I taught SS how to steam the buns for lunch couple weeks ago. He was able to do it everyday for two weeks (until we ran out of buns) without issue. Then today he almost broke the rice cooker and potentially causing an explosion if I wasn't paying attention to what he was doing. (happened to be cooking nearby)
I so wish I'm exaggerating, but I am not.
He told me it was "long time ago" since he last steamed his food and he didn't know he was doing it wrong. I am stressed out because it really feels nothing we taught him stays. (Same thing goes to academic subjects too)
His lack of common sense is exhausting me (and DH, he heard the commotion and dealt with his boy). I get that he has trouble memorizing things, but the biggest issue perhaps is that he doesn't ask because he thinks he knows everything!
He's almost 13, he wants to come straight home after school (once it reopens again, of course) but I fear our home might not even be there if we do that. It is truly nuts that we have to keep an eye on him all the time.
