I am a sucker. Always have been. Today, again, I let the tears of my sweet son make me a sucker.
Homework has always been a sore spot with Reid. He hates it. And to tell you the truth I do too. But, nonetheless, it has to be done. Everyday is a struggle and a fight to get it done. This year has been really hard for him and those who know me have heard the story 3.7 million times and I am almost positive you don't want to hear it again.
Today the tears flowed and the tantum started. We both got upset and the grounding occured. After about 2 hours of hashing it out....it is somewhat resolved and the homework is pretty much complete. The grounding...well, it is over. I know....I'm a sucker.
I guess the point of this post is I feel like I am at my wits end and I ask for prayers. His attitude this year has been different. He has had a rough year (and grown alot) and I ask for prayers from my friends and family that the rest of this year and next year be better for him. And me. Also for peace and understanding. I know you shouldn't pray for this but a little p-a-i-t-e-n-c-e would be nice...just don't say it too loud. This year has been a hard time for both of us. I have been in tears just as many times as him, I think. I'm sad to see him go through this and to be so broken hearted.
a sucker...a red one
