School, Mike and Aiden and grown up life

So I'm in the Master's Program now. I'm in my second class now and doing very well. I got a B in a my first class but this second class I'm sure to get an A.
Mikey and I are still going strong, yet we have a lack of communication at times. One of us will assume the other is mad and then it's a vicious circle.
Sometimes I feel like we don't have a lot to talk about. We have all that new and excited "getting to know you" conversation finished to the fullest extent.
We are living the life of a married couple but we are not yet married.
I think things are going well over all. There are no real conflicts, just misunderstandings.
Aiden is getting bigger everyday and presenting me with things I don't know how to handle. I made an appointment for him to see a counselor because he gets upset with himself and will harm himself by hitting and pinching. He also will talk down to himself, calling himself a loser.
Half of me believes it is attention seeking, however, I work with children that have tried to kill themselves at 8 years old and I worry that when he starts facing the stress of peer relationships that he won't be able to handle it well.
I worry that he has not dealt with stressors in his life such as moving often and having three different father figures with in six years.
On a lighter note. We are planning him a huge birthday party bash. We are going to turn the garage into a batcave and the living room into gotham city. It's a costume party and it should be awesome. However, it's going to be a lot of work to decorate and put together but I'm excited to see him excited.
I guess that's really it.
That's what I've been up to.
I'll forget about this place for awhile and then come back to write when I remember that I even have this outlet to vent.
