My youngest and I have been traveling a rocky time of it lately. I haven't really wanted to be around him because of his behavior.
He came home Friday with a school project. He was supposed to build a telegraph. Since I am the building mom, it fell to me to help.
I'm glad it did. Gave us time to reconnect. Hopefully, we've moved past the rocky part if only for a little while.
I should say that we got the telegraph built and it does actually work. It's a little crude; nevertheless, it dots and dashes just like it was meant to. We'll see what grade he gets.
We'll see how he behaves.
We'll see how I feel about him in a week and how well I pass this test of patience and self-control.
