The weather is TEXTBOOK gorgeous
-( any wonder why Autistic people feel soothed by lining things up? )
"This part of my head feels extra heavy now "
"I could not sleep at all last night"
"The Antibiotics are making my tummy hurt
"Ugggggh I am so tired "
Other random things break
- Our bed
- R's glasses break -both of his glasses - as he has been rubbing his eyes endlessly with all the allergies
- Our garage door
Sometimes I wonder if there is anything to this law of attraction nonsense!
Fake it till I make it !
Still its better than nothing
I also change the content of what I say - instead of sharing the horrible-ness of how I am feeling - I start speaking with the use endearments again
Instantly I start to feel better
R is really starting to answer questions really well that are close ended
"Do you want to go from the front of the house or the back of the house?"
he will answer "Front of the house "
Really he learns language like an older person learning a foreign language .. but he is learning it !
One interesting thing I am noticing is that while he is always very polite - he really does try to always get his own way
His interest is in not getting caught
One crime is that he likes to sit on the computer table
Every time I see him committing this diabolical crime - I squeal in horror
R looks at me contritely
He says "Ooops ... sorry" ( I have to work really hard to not smile as its ADORABLE )
But then as soon as I walk away
There he is on the computer table again !
This is lovely
My MIL and SIL arrive for a visit
R is excited to see family come to visit - this is such a change
The last time they came , he become extra stimmy and appeared stressed
They fawn over him and he fawns over them - this is fabulous because him Grandma and Aunt dote on him
My MIL is a workaholic - though I picked up and cleaned before they came - she immediately gets a broom and a pan and starts to scrub and dust
The house is sparkling
We go to his new Kindergarten Classroom - he will start in August
They have no special ed classes any more - so everyone is mainstreamed
The classroom size is alarming - the current classroom is 22 - I worry that R will simply be lost
I take some pics of the essays that are depicted outside - the outgoing class has proudly displayed these
R must know this by the end of the year
We want to make sure - we support the academics so he can focus on the Social - as Danette and her DH advised in their blog once
Work has been uber stressful and I am suffering from insomania again
My goal for the next week is to focus on the important stuff - get some sleep , be more productive ( especially in terms of floortime ) and worry less
