From Typical to Depressing

So, a few days ago, as I was listening to my 3 FX children beautifully playing and singing nicely together, I told God how wonderful they were and how much I love them, and just what a 'typical', 'ordinary', 'everyday' life that day seemed to be. And I meant it. And of course, I still think my kids are wonderful and love them more than anything. doesn't seem so wonderfully 'typical'. Well, typical in the way I meant a few days ago. It's the 5th day of school. I've talked to his classroom teacher 3 times on the phone, and his Special Ed teacher 3 times on the phone and held email conversations 3 times. As a whole, this is not a bad thing. I like knowing they are keeping me in touch. However, today was a phone call I would rather not have gotten. It was his classroom teacher, and she told me that Ian has pooped three times today. Long story short, the reason she was calling about it was because neither her, nor his Spec. Ed. teacher, nor his aid knew about this 'issue'. She was very kind about it. But I told her that it was talked about in the ARD because it was an issue Jim and I were very concerned about regarding him being in a regular ed. classroom. So, WHY IN THE WORLD DID HIS TEACHER AND SPECIAL ED TEACHER NOT KNOW ABOUT IT! This is the part I HATE about everything being so new for my poor boy. Nobody knows anything now.

Find the say? Okay, here it is. At least none of the times he pooped was in the general ed classroom, so no one was there to make fun of him!

How frustrating! I hope things get ironed out quickly. I'm just starting to enter the world of school/IEPs and it is a daunting world. Hang in there!

I'm sorry you have to go through that. Doesn't the SPED teacher sit in on the ARD? I pray it will get better and go more smoothly.
