Today is one of those days.
Sean got his semi-permanent "appliance" (think "retainer") put in the other day and his mouth has been hurting.
I forgot to give him something this morning for the pain before he went to school.
I found out last night that one of my closest friends from college had died. This morning I was still in my own world of disbelief, of grief. I was caught up and forgot....
Do I run over to school with some medicine? Do I wait for the school nurse to call? Will he go to the school nurse? Or will he, not realizing he's reacting to the pain, have a meltdown over something completely unrelated and that will cause a snowball of consequences and jeopardize his integration and everything we've worked so hard to achieve?
So today, as a mom, I failed because I forgot.
