Today I'm in the dumps. You see, Caleb's behavior is starting to take a turn for the worse. It is like he is regressing to that time I still call "The Summer from HELL". Yesterday was one of his worst days ever. He was exhibiting some decidedly unsafe behaviors. I just deleted a bunch of stuff I wrote---let's just leave it at that.
I'm feeling back at that stage where I am a totally clueless parent. I'm doing everything in my power to help him but we haven't found anything that works.
I'm also depressed because Carl has been having a lot of work and church things to do lately and hasn't been home to help as much. I got a 15 minute break last night when he was home to eat between work and church. Tonight he has another church obligation. He'll also be gone from Mar 25th-Apr 1st to do some research down at NASA. This coincides with Caleb's Spring Break. I'm going to be calling in the calvary for that week, for sure.
So, there you have it. My keepin' it real post for today.
