My bio is being tested for the gifted program at school and dh is acting like a dick about it...
On Tuesday I received some much welcome and exciting news. My youngest bio son(7) is being tested for the gifted program at school. He scored very high on this last round of standardized testing and the letter indicated they would like to do some additional assessment. I couldn't have been more proud!
As many of you know my oldest son(11) has high-functioning Autism, so you can see this was a very uplifting moment for our family. I have struggled to help my eldest so much with his education that occasionally it feels as if my youngest gets lost in the shuffle. But this proves that I'm doing ok. I'm a good mom. And my boys love and support one another. My oldest son spent a lot of time reading to his brother over the years and it paid off. Their dad is MIA and that's a blessing as he was an abuser and mentally ill. So this news made me cry with joy, and I am not a crier.
Dh, by all accounts, has been a complete and total ass about it. He barely mumbled a "good job, dude" to my son when I told him. He's been aloof and distant with me as well. And I know why. He's jealous. He's jealous for his kid.
My ss is not a bad kid. He's a decent child. But that being said he is only a Prince Only Child of divorce for dh and twat waffle. And they have insisted since birth, as has dh's entire family, that ss is a "genius" and a stellar athlete destined for professional sports. It's not the case. SS is smart kid and he's average at sports.
I don't understand how dh thinks this is a competition or somehow will detract from ss? It has nothing to do with him. And perhaps, there in, lies the problem. It isn't about ss, or dh, or twat waffle. It's about my bio. And I have never pitted ss against my bios. Kids are all different and learn in different ways.
