Who’s the thorn in my flesh this year? What name am I going to be calling over and over and over again? Who am I going to need to stop talking and pay attention? J_ is the name. He frequently does’t bring his homework. He often doesn’t return things he needs to. I’ve got mom’s text number, and I’ve already texted her a number of times to help her remind J that he needs to show her things so that she can sign it and that he can return it. I think mom’s overwhelmed.
