After trying to get Mariah evaluated by the school system here for over a month to no avail despite help from several people, we finally sent a certified letter requesting an evaluation because we were told that sending a letter was the "proof" to get someone to do what we were asking.
We sent the letter last week.
I got a call today to schedule a Child Study Meeting. At 7:30am.
Yep 7:30am is the ONLY time they have available within the next 10 days, which is apparently the time limit they have to do the meeting.
Well guess who is going to have to take a 2, 4, and 5 year old into a Child Study Meeting by herself. Yep. ME.
Wes's preschool doesn't start until 9am so I can't even go one kid down. The kids don't even get up until around 8 most mornings especially since the time change.
I feel screwed. I've tried and tried all this time and now I'm stuck with this. There is no way I can get 3 kids to wake up early, eat breakfast, get dressed, and get Katya's stretching done and AFOs on, and show up at a meeting at the school by 7:30am without someone having a major meltdown. (Probably ME)
You know that saying, "Be careful what you wish for?" That's what I'm feeling. I asked for this so I guess I'll just take my bedraggled kids and self in there and see what happens.
This is the part where I wish I could clone myself so one of me could stay home in bed with 2 sleeping boys while the other me gets up and has time to nicely dress herself and Mariah, eat breakfast, and calmly drive to a meeting where I can concentrate on the ONE child that is being evaluated instead of the two that are cranky and will not sit still and be quiet for 30 minutes.
