Well today was the day for the kids to go back to school. This morning was a rough one. Dakota woke up at 5 AM and tried to wake up the whole house screeching and screaming and wound tight. He didn’t want to get dressed right away this morning either. I took him to school and he held my hand so tight. I could tell he was nervous with out him even saying anything. I took him into the classroom and the teacher said hello. We started sorting through his supplies and I think he was getting a little agitated with her as he started organizing them the way he though they should be and then she would tell him no they go here. The the announcements came on and they said the pledge. Dakota’s response was I am not doing this. I thought to myself I can tell what kind of day this is going to be so I let myself out and headed home.
I had to go up to the school twice to give Dakota his meds. The first time he tried to walk out the front door. The second time he didn’t want to leave his sister. LOL
I walked to get him from school and he waited patiently. I actually thought I was going to cringe with his behavior but NOPE not today. I was so happy about that. I met up with his teacher and she said that after the first time I gave him his pills it was hard to redirect him. The second time this afternoon she said that he didn’t participate in gym and that he was excited to have seen his sister. She said there was a time where she didn’t know if he was rebelling not to do something. I said it could have been, it could have been that he was bored or just didn’t want to do it. She also said they had shout outs and she could tell that he couldn’t handle the noise.We had a nice walk home. He helped push Brittany in her stroller. We stopped at the bakery and he got himself and Brad a donut. Brittany got a cupcake. All of a sudden while we continued home a truck went by and he covered his ears. Not that it was a surprise to me as he is noise sensitive at times. I asked him why he didn’t participate in gym and he said that his feet hurt. So I am trying to figure that one out. I know it can be noisy in the gym. We got home and he went and laid down. He literally shut down. I knew that after the day he would have been over stimulated. So I am glad he took that time for himself. I am really happy to see him start identifing things too.
So all in all not a bad day for him.
Brad said that he had locker trouble. They put him with the freshman and had to change his locker. LOL He was happy that he didn’t get homework and that all it was to get some papers signed.
Brittany and I had a busy day with a meeting and then a trip to the library, picking up Dakota and I had to do some cleaning. Well I attempted anyway. LOL
