First Week of School
Over. Today when I went to get Anthony, the school was on a lockdown - there was some sort of police action right near his school. But it was over shortly after I got there and he was safe as could be. His first week was better than we could have ever imagined. I think he is maybe not the worst behaved kid there! His teacher told me today that he had two meltdowns - one was because he couldn't eat all the watermelon he wanted and one was because he couldn't play with the instruments at music time all day. Apparently, he had two watermelon servings and then when they told him he couldn't have more, he went to other kids' plates and started to take theirs! Mostly what I want to say about this week is that his teacher and the two assistants seem to really like Anthony and it just means more to me than I can say. For the first time in a long time, I really think he'll be okay. Or at least out of the house for a few hours a day. Ha!
