Today I don't have any pictures to post, and it was a fairly rough day at school. The parents of the boy I spend most of my time with are fiddling with his medications. The poor boy has been completely off kilter the past week. Great big highs and very low lows. My heart bleeds for him, as the other children sometimes pick on him. Today he made great strides he started talking to another boy who has problems as well (the boy he usually hangs around with was in the office for not doing his work). I am hoping that the tentative friendship started today develops more fully.
I am not physically tired but mentally tired. I always have to be upbeat and happy and that can be wearing at times. The boy who ended up in the office today was one I took out to do the test. He kept refusing to do it until finally I had no recourse but to go and get the acting principal. One of the other aides told me later how she was amazed that I could keep my cool after being called names, and been disrespected. I told her that in most cases a person losing their cool just becomes another child who bullies the other. It would have caused more problems than solved them.
I sure hope that tomorrow brings a better day. Off to visit you all, and then to bed to read my book club book The Time Travellers Wife.
Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
