A Good Start

Given that it's only 10:13am on Monday morning, I don't really have anything to report except that dropping Finn off at school this morning was uneventful. Did you hear that? UNEVENTFUL! Never have I been so excited to write that word before.

Normally, Sunday would be a day of dread for Finn. A day filled with, "I don't want to go to school tomorrow." Bedtime would be a drag--prolonged with angst, anxiety and inability to sleep. Not so this weekend. Never once did he say he didn't want to go to school. A small step, but an important one.

I feel anxious because I feel like we're "on trial." I still feel like people think Finn's SPD issues are behaviors that just need to be disciplined out of him.

Time will tell.

I did see Finn's former teacher this morning. Slightly awkward.

That's a start! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that more good things are just around the corner.. :-)

(PS Did you trip "the old teacher" when you walked past him today??)

in a world surrounded by men said...

Just a note... Mr. Teacher is the one who should feel awkward... he's the one who got fired from a student...

and a pretty great one.
