Buy stock in Kleenex people....our household is using it up. Partly because the kids are all out of sorts and partly because despite my tutorials on how to blow your nose more than once per tissue, it has fallen on deaf ears....
I can't figure out if it's the start of the school year, the one month mark of saying goodbye to their bio parents or something else.
But the crying about everything is getting old...fast.
Did you do your homework?
Did you feed the dog?
Why is the backpack on the floor?
What shoes do you have on?
A reader on Facebook asked how the kids were adjusting.
I think ok- except the tears. Could be that they are letting some of the walls come down and they are letting us in more. I know the therapists would tell us tears are a sign of attachment.
But it sucks.
Everyone seems to like their teachers. The school social worker has been in touch about Sarah's 504 Plan. We've hit curriculum night for the 3rd and 5th grader and next week is curriculum night at the Primary School. (Our schools are k-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9&10, 11&12.)
Most importantly the kids are talking about making friends. This makes me incredibly happy.
