My stepson's mother just called. In an attempt to be nice & considerate, I sent some of his schoolwork with him to her house today.

She called because apparently the work was sloppy. Now I'll admit I haven't had time to look closely at his work he's brought home from school, but I've seen check marks & notes when he's been a bit messy with his work. We've went over that & talk about why it was messy and what he needs to do differently next time. But he gets a metric ton of schoolwork that comes home every night, and with long hours for me & his dad at work, we're lucky to get his homework done every night. According to his mom, his math is all wrong and his coloring is messy and he is just doing a piss-poor job with his work.

Well excuse me. It's nice to know that 7 1/2 years into his life, she suddenly wants to take an interest in how he's doing at school. Never mind all the school meetings she's missed, or the therapy, or the doctor's appointments, or the medication tweaks, or the bad preschool experiences. She's fought with us tooth & nail over his autistic-spectrum diagnosis, his medication, the school, any new behavior modification we try. And now all of a sudden she wants to play "mom" & badmouth his teacher because his teacher is letting this work pass? It's just ridiculous!

His teacher has been great so far this year. We haven't had one complaint about him, which is just amazing. I think he's doing well, and no, his work is not going to be perfect, but for all the work he's doing, he's doing pretty darn well IMO.

Well, now she's going to drill him with extra homework (her homework) every weekend because I tried to reach out with a kind gesture. Poor kid. And poor me for having to listen to her nonsense.
