I was kind of hoping it would be lost at the airport.

Kid #1 (Daughter, 10, 5th grade) is the most impulsive child I've ever met. 
I tried to send her to school without meds, because Friday is a short day. She totally melted down.

I don't know what to do with her. She's in therapy. husband and I are in therapy. We're doing everything we can, but she's only bearable when she's actively doing something FUN and fully-directed, watching a video, or on meds. 

Ask her to do half a page of math problems and she falls apart. 

Ask her to fold some laundry, same thing. 

Basically, anything I ask her to do that my three year old can't do, she falls apart.

She was moved to a small class (same educational level, but more staff)

Sort of helping, but not much.

Just keep up the support and try not to flip out. With enough persistence there is success at the other end. What is she being medicated for? A wrong diagnosis there can make things even worse -- both of my kids ended up just having simple anxiety.

After a very stressful beginning-of-summer trying to figure out his financial situation, my 18 year old IGlet is finally seeing some success.

Yesterday he finally got his first payment from Goolag. He's got a lot of followers on his YouTube channel and it looks like this is going to bring in $100-200 a month. And today he finally landed a summer (and part time in the fall) job, after a lot of rejections earlier in the season. Two wins in 48 hours. He's on cloud nine right now.

Oh and did I mention that his first semester at WCC has been almost completely paid for with scholarships?

So, sweet baby Nic turned 22 last week. He's currently the highest level assistant manager, with noises about another promotion coming up.

Marilyn turns 20 today, and started her nursing program yesterday. She's living with her boyfriend, and is a much better adult than her mother.

Day 1 of college.  IGlet was pretty happy when he got in his car and drove off to the campus today.  IG is extremely happy that IGlet will be coming home at the end of the day, after classes followed by a couple of hours at his job.  I'm really proud of him and very happy that he's not going far away.

He said it was a lot for him to take in but he's liking it so far. After being micromanaged through high school (not by us) he's excited about deciding for himself when he needs help and when he can run on his own. He is an anti-procrastinator who wants to get everything done as soon as possible, so pacing himself is going to take some getting used to.

His girlfriend is starting her second year there, and my cousin just transferred in (yes I have a first cousin who's just a year older than my own son), and he knows a few other people on campus, so it's not like he's heading into a big foreign world. It is working well for him so far.

I'm eating, sleeping, going to work, do some chores about the apartment, going to therapy. On top of all of this, I had to take Mae to the ER to be admitting to the psych ward sunday. She did not hurt herself, but wanted to. They've already got in going to group a few times a day, and on meds. The social worker is helping her find a doctor and therapist near her apartment. This shit can stop now.
