The shortest blog I've ever written ...

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I am posting this so my Spark friends will not think I've totally disappeared, lost all interest or forgotten they're here. My grandson's psychologist has come up with a new plan for him that involves a lot of coaching and teaching and activities that I'm heavily involved in this summer. I think it's a good plan and he responded well to it yesterday, our first day of implementation.

But it's severely cutting into my personal time and my Sparking time. I can't even keep up with the friend feed, although I do check in when I get a few minutes so I can see what everybody's up to. But if I'm not as responsive as usual, this is why.

I'm off now to get in a quick workout before he gets here. Hope everybody has a wonderful summer!

    You are a wonderful grandmother. What a lucky boy to have you there for him. I sincerely hope that that your grandson's response continues to be positive. Will be thinking of you and hope that you'll be checking in with awesome progress reports.

    It's great that you can spend the time with your Grandson to give him the help he needs. Spark will be here when you can.

    Best of luck. I don't know what your boy's problem is but let me tell you a story. This year just before Christmas, the junior high curriculum director came to tell me she was taking custody of her 11 year-old step-grandson and started listing his problems. OMG was my first thought but she promised to do everything at home she could do to help him, tutoring, coaching, discipline routine. The principal warned me the kid was prone to tantrums, threw furniture, etc. Granny did her part, I did mine, the kid did his. May TAKS scores gave us passing grades in all 3 state assessments with commendations in reading and writing. He only had one meltdown - while I was off a week with pneumonia - which was resolved by his spending most of the week in the counselor's office doing workpacks I had given him.

    During this time, he was diagnosed with Aspergers as well as OCD, ADHD, etc. Hopefully, his druggie mother will never want him back.

    I'll tell you - I don't know who cried more the day those scores came in - granny or me but every hairy day was worth it!

    Go girl - it matters!

    What a good grandma you are - when we have little ones with special needs, it does take a lot of time and energy and cuts into our "spare" time - and somehow we manage! Good for you!!!
