what homework?
wednesday, october 15, 2003

the older child unit is about to lose all focus, on homework anyway. and she's been doing so good.

see, just before this school year started, we handed the responsibility of homework over to said older child. we aren't supposed to mention it, harass her over it, ground her for not doing it, anything. she flunks a class, there goes her chances at anything except a junior college and she only has herself to blame. even julliard is asking for a 3.0 gpa. if she wants it, it's her responsibility to do what she needs to do to get it.

and she's been doing it. not always successfully - her math grades are still in the toilet - but she is doing it. every night she does her homework without anyone saying anything. she tries to get things done on the weekend. she's working on finding the best way to get work done. she's up late if she needs to, which, unfortunately, is leading to a late morning problem, but she's trying to work everything out.

we're still having problems with her getting home on time at night, but other than that things are good.

and starting today that will all fade away for the next 2-3 weeks.

my daughter has an audition for the music center spotlight awards and she has until november 2nd to prep a routine for it. we all know where her energies will be focused until this.

and it won't be on how to improve her math grade.

i wonder just how bruised and bloody my tongue will be when this is all over.
