The 11 year old is obese. He started becoming overweight at around 5 and he's now huge. Yesterday at school he went to stand up off the floor and got a stress fracture in his ankle because of his weight.
The 6 year old is in my dd's kindergarten class and she tells me every day how he gets his color moved down because he either falls asleep in class or is running around the classroom disrupting class. My sil thinks it's cute that he's so "quirky". He's 6 and I can understand my 2 year old better than him!! Well, they found out today that he's being held back in kindergarten next year. My sil calls me pissed saying that it's all the teachers fault and she's going to complain to the school. Nope, sorry, my dd has the same teacher and she's amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher.
Now she's crying to anyone who'll listen about how her older son must have something medically wrong with him and how her younger son is being treated unfairly. I just want to scream "No!! It's you!! You're a crappy mom and now you want to blame everyone but yourself. Take some responsibility and change things!!" Ugggg....OK rant over.
