So since my last post, the Potato has had two more incidents at the after-school program, and landisdad and I have decided to pull him out of it.
Which means that, at least until the end of the year, I’ll be working from the old house a couple of afternoons a week. This will be coupled with taking the Potato with me to work meetings or my apartment, and occasionally relying on my brother’s in-laws for help as well.
What really, really sucks is that the Bee is seeing it as a major loss for her.
A major loss of the independence that she’s gained this year, since she no longer gets to be by herself in the house for a couple of hours in the afternoon. And a major loss in life equity, since of course she never liked the after-school program either, and the fact that the Potato gets to just quit means that we love him more than we do her.
