« Last post by MandCmama on August 03, 2022, 06:52:31 PM »
In our high school they are not allowed to carry purses or backpacks through the day. He despises cargo pants and shorts. He lives in sweatpants and basketball shorts, but I donít feel like heíd notice if they fell out of those pockets. The bag he opted to carry his AuviQ s and inhaler arrived today. We compromised and I said he could carry them at school if he wore the belt everywhere else.
BUTÖ.

Then I caught him in a lie. We were on our way out the door and I asked if he had his epi belt on. He said he did. I asked again bc he was wearing a slim fitted shirt and I couldnít see it. Again he said he did. We got to our destination and I found heíd lied. No belt. He lied rather than hear me say it should always be on (heíd just come in from work). I also did have any with me bc my youngest jumped in a creek with his the other day. Weíre waiting on his new ones, so he has the ones from my purse.

Now, of course, Iím catastrophizing  and spiraling about how this is going to lead to him getting into cars with drunk drivers rather than call me. You know. Really chill mom thoughts.

Iím really at a loss now.
