there are so many factors that come along with a drug baby. 90% of which arent invisible when "looking" at the child. many people say..."stormie looks fine." yeah she does. she's beautiful in fact. but in her head the parts of the brain that should be making connections are not. the sensory input she needs is enough to hurt any grown up. she struggles with behavior issues, impulse control, and lacks the ability to sit still and focus.
my problem is ballet. stormie clearly loves it. practices. and talks very highly of her teacher. the teacher is excellent. in class stormie is unfocused and sometimes she floats off to somewhere else in her mind. i want to talk with the teacher. i want to make an excuse for stormie. more importantly, i wanna make an excuse for myself. do they think i'm a bad parent because my daughter can't focus for 60 minutes? probably. i wanna tell them i'm not. i wanna apologize for her getting extra attention and distracting the other ballerinas...i wanna tell them there are other things happening with her.
should i? at what point am i making excuses for her? is the real issue with me and i need to get over it. talk to me. honestly. i wont be offended. promise.
