Daily School Report 12/09/14

I was indeed full of anxiety from the moment I woke up, today was the day I allowed Dylan to try going back to school after a full week of not being there, because he was too sick. He still had some symptoms that would make the school think he was sick, but its something that happens with people on liquid diets when they come down with the stomach flu. It will be weeks before Dylan is 100% healthy again, and I knew the longer I waited the harder his adjustment was going to be on his return. So today he was going, not only that but he was out of ABA therapy too for awhile. He saw his BSA one time last week and that was it. I knew on Friday he was well enough to see people but I didn't think he was well enough to go to school.

Today during ABA therapy his BSA was the only person who come. That was probably best for it being the first day of the week he was getting back into the routine. If OT, ABA therapist, and case worker come all in one day Dylan would have been more of a mess then he was already.  He was OK during his session a little on edge i think we both could tell but, she took her time to ease him back into the string on things. He ended up staying calm most of the time, and he seems super excited when it was time to go to the bus. My boy couldn't get out the door fast enough. He walked right in front of me to get out and was on a mission, it got my hopes up for school. I know he really enjoys going to school, its just when he gets there and hes been out of the swing so long it becomes too much to quick.

 Today at school Dylan of the following according to the daily objectives send him sheet sent by his teacher.

1-No Response/hand over hand
2-Multiple prompts (Gestural, physical,visual, and/or verbal)
3-No more then 2 verbal prompts

  • 1 Imitate action with body or toys
  • 3 complete fine motor activities
  • 1 sit for 5 minutes at group without adult assistance
  • 1 work on age appropriate table table activity for 2 minutes
His daily classroom activities were

  • Play skills
  • Gross motor
  • Fine motor
  • Snack
  • Morning work
  • Sensory Activity
  • Calendar
  • Math
  • Lunch
  • Handwriting program

Dylan's teacher left comments today was a rough day. Dylan was really upset today and he cried for over 1 hour straight. I remembered he like Sid the science kid and I got out my Ipad and put it on PBS kids. He stopped crying and watched it briefly. He started to fall sleep in the chair so we put him in the swing so he wouldn't fall out of the chair. He was calm for 20 minutes and then he began cryng again. He was burping and farting so maybe his stomach hurt.

Dylan does seem really gassy since the switch to soy formula while being sick and he will need to continue using soy formula until i am able to test milk based again over a weekend to be sure his diarrhea has stopped fully. He also doesn't seem to like Soy formula at all, so I think tomorrow I will send both kinds of formula with warning that giving him the milk based one might make him calm down but he might also get a diaper blow out.

Today I also got a phone call from the school counselor/social worker about Dylan's anxiety level at school, I made a vlog of my thoughts on it. They are thinking meds will help and want me to take him to see a doctor about it which I agree I should to, but this video explains my own anxieties about my children being on meds. There are pros and cons to children being on medications, and my fears run rapid when thinking about putting a 3 year old on them. 

Also Dylan's school pictures come back today. The teacher told us about this day and how Dylan cried the entire time. It took about 20 times before they could snap one picture with no tears. While its not the best we have seen Dylan. I intend to keep these and not do retakes. One day Dylan will be able to stand in from of a big camera and even thought it might be scary, someday he will do it without tears. I will be able to look back on this moment and see the growth in my son no matter how small it might be.  I look forward to that.

He does look a little scared and like he doesn't understand whats going on, this is his first school picture and so we are lucky he even allowed it to happen at all. I'm proud of him for that much :)


Today Jasmine just seem overly tired, I'm pretty sure shes going to be a few inches taller in the next week. All she has been doing is eating and sleeping. She is still grounded to the house but in the moment there's no need to tell her she cant do things like watch TV because when she gets off the bus, makes her way home, the first thing she does is crash out on the couch.

Tonight we managed to do an OK haul at the grocery store. Both Dylan and Jasmine seems crabby to say the least, but neither one was sent into melt down mode. Jasmine Just kept telling me how hungry she was and I told her we were going to have Tacos for diner when we got home. When we got home she passed out again while I was cooking, when I woke her up to eat she lashed out on me say " Don't wake me up, I'm hungry, I'm going to sleep. " A lot what comes out of Jasmines mouth when she first wakes up never makes sense to me and I'm sure I sound the same when I get rudely awakened. I knew she was hungry and I didn't want her to go to bed hungry, so i made her get up to eat one Taco and then she went right back to sleep.
