Maybe it was the fact I have now made three requests to have Sky evaluated for special education services. Maybe it was the fact that I went to the meeting with one-week old baby and post-pregnancy pathetic expression in tow. Or maybe, just maybe, the community school folks are finally ready to do their job. Either way, I finally managed to get their consent to evaluate Sky. This seeming success is tempered by the fact that they now have fifty instructional days to comply (not to mention the fact it took an entire semester to get them to this point). Since there is only one more day left in this academic year, that means that they have essentially 10 weeks or one whole grading period of his first-grade year to get him evaluated. Sigh. Two steps forward, one step back. At this point, any forward motion is still motion, so I'll take it.

Once I've had a little more sleep and once I am no longer taking strong pain medication (darn C-section!), I will write about the colossal paradigm shift we are currently experiencing. For now, all I can say is that I am glad Stow manages to sleep for four hours straight at night (of course, now that I have written this, he will be up every hour on the hour tonight, especially since he is sleeping SO well today). Stay tuned...
