Day 541

It seems I've taken my eye off of the ball.

Whilst slogging my guts out at work and working hard but failing miserably to keep the house clean and tidy ( with little or no help from the kids. ) I've messed up hugely, but it's fixable.

Since splitting up with the ex, I had assumed, seeing as he was picking up the kid from school and spending at least a couple of hours with them, that he was checking the youngests home work. Not so it seems, I got a note from school saying that the youngest was constantly disruptive or distracted in class and that homework was rarely done. Stern words and punishment have been dished out to him.
His dad hasn't checked his homework in ages. So I sat down and talked to the youngest. Explained that he needed to concentrate more in school. And that I would make sure his homework was done. This entails a little bit of jiggling around. But we have come to an agreement. In the meantime he is grounded and not allowed any phone or games. Time to get tough.

Hope everyone is doing well. Sending lots of love, big hugs and big kisses to you all xxxxxxxxx

    I agree with WD - is he not adult enough to make sure these little things get done? Or is he the ''Fun'' parent?

    No I'm not super woman....... I'm wonder woman. Lol. Well he admitted that he had been dropping youngest off at home when he was going to pick up the girls from school. That was to save youngest from sitting in the hot car. But days where he doesn't have to go and pick them up, he sits on the sofa sleeping his way through sports, so he's not the fun parent. Lol but the new routine with the youngests homework actually suits me and works out better. Thanks guys. Xxx

    When you said 'stern words and punishment have been dished out to him I wondered if you were talking about your son or your ex partner! Haha. Both probably needed them! xx

    No just my son got punished, I just told my husband about it, and he'll beat himself up over it. There is no point in getting angry and ranting and raving. Lol.
