Parent Teacher Conferences

Today is my first parent teacher conference with Landen's teacher. We have been in contact about certain things over the course of the last couple of months but it'll be nice to sit down and actually talk with her about how he is doing. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. But there's a part of me that doesn't want to get my hopes up about anything either. I never know how long it will last! I will update this post after his conference this afternoon.

Update:  He had a WONDERFUL report card! As I was waiting in the hallway for my turn, his music teacher came up to me and asked if I was Landen's mom. I said yes with a cringe..He told me that Landen is his best student in his class and that he is always willing to participate, excited to try new things and listens very well. That was an awesome way to start off his conference!!! So I get into the room to talk with the teacher and she gives me more good news. She tells me how good he is doing and how he impresses her with how quickly he learns and how much he knows. She said that she's made him upset a few times but he has controlled it and handled it very well. I am so proud of him! The only things she wants him to work on is asking for help and participating more. I told her that I think the participation will come as the year goes on and he opens up more. He is doing so well and interacting well and everything!
Then she told me this: "I would take a whole classroom full of Landen's if I could." That stunned me! He is such a good student and I am so proud of him!

It's been a while

Its been quite a while since I last blogged about our Bipolar situations..Honestly? Things have been going goo with Landen and I forget, that even though, its good, I should still talk about it. Things have been busy in my own personal life and I don't seem to have enough time in a day.
Landen started at a new school in a new school district this year. I was a tad hesitant at first but he loves it!! He's doing so well and enjoys going to school everyday.
I'm so blessed to be able to smile as he runs off to the doors of the school instead of crying as he slowly walks in, waiting for that first phone call of the day.
I am not naive in knowing that this will not last. I know we will have problems again. I don't know when, it could be this year, it could be two years from now. I honestly don't know. I will live "on edge" everyday. I can't live any other way. I cannot let my guard down..I have this fear that if I do, something bad will happen.
But for now, I will enjoy the happiness and the peace that we have going so far. Little steps, and one day at a time!
