So tonight I had to make the big decision to move my child to another school in our district so he can attend a GATES Academy (gifted only children in class) or keep him where he is and he will be in GATE cluster in a "normal"class --did I mention my child is twice gifted--ADHD and GATE--argg like that isn't difficult enough and now I have to choose what is the best road for my child --oh now what the heck did I just eat--I feel full so I know I ate OMG did I black out from stress and decision making--seriously what did I eat. OK calm down you got this -Good news --I just found a major problem I have--I absent-mindedly ate --NOTE to self stay away from kitchen when thinking about serious issues and take a walk instead or hey journal it out like I am now?
I asked my 8 year old his opinion because 8 year olds can make HUGE decisions on there own .LOL He wants to stay (of course friends are here and he has a great support system to help manage his ADHD-)- My choice ---he is staying! Of course that has always been my choice I know we need the support system and they already do a great time challenging him--even though he does the bare minimum of work--he is Gifted not dumb of course he does not want more work. Anyways I think I freaked myself out because I started thinking what if he was able to stay in his school and go into a all Gate class would I do it then? I have no idea --and whew just stopped myself from heading to the kitchen--( I started to freak out again) How can I make a decision that will effect my child's life? Why do I have to? --oh wait he is only in elementary school stop worrying and just let him be a kid--wait a second what was that he said he wants to enter the Karate tournament and wants to take a hip hop /break dance class-- and what else oh archery camp--Why definitely yes to all of those and for school he is doing just fine so why mess with those water. Finally I feel calm and happy the kitchen is a far distant in my mind--I know (for the moment anyways) what is best for my child. Think I will go take a hot shower and grab my book and a cup of tea the stress of today is over and it is time for me:) One more day down--I can do this!--
