Beyond frustrated that our hands are tied until after court
Normally when BM has a meltdown name-calling fest with DH we don't see SS for weeks. But today when he texted her about picking him up she said sure. I guess the threat from the magistrate actually got through to her.
On a side note, DH and I are kind of worried about SS. He's in kindergarten, and we know it's normal for kids that age in public school to get sick often, but he's been sick since at least Oct. 1st (from what BM told us). Nothing major, just a bad cough and occasional nausea, but still. BM dropped him off with three different over-the-counter meds so we're concerned that she isn't taking him to the doctor. Who doesn't have a prescription for a kid who's been sick a month?
The last time she dropped him off sick we never gave him any meds and he was much improved by day two with us. So he may be allergic to something at her house? Either way we can't wait until DH can take him to the doctor and find out why the hell the kid has been taking kids version Dayquil and Nyquil for a whole month.
Also DH called SS's school last week to see how he's doing. Turns out he's severely behind, and his teacher told DH he needs to get help at home. I guess BM isn't quite the mother of the year that she thought? We sat down with SS to get an idea of where he's at and the poor kid can't count past 12. He can't recognize most colors. It makes me so sad that right now we don't see him enough to really help him. And BM clearly doesn't think it's important. He's a very smart kid, which just makes it more frustrating.
