I was greeted with the four am wakeup call once again by hearing Owen at the cat water fountain. Tonight I will make sure it is turned off. It makes a low hum, but he can hear it over all the white noise and every other noise this house makes. I think I will need to move it to a different location. I was able to get him back to sleep and he then slept until after seven. I told him a couple of hours before we left that he was going to meet a new lady at a building he hadn’t been to before, still not wanting to say teacher and school directly to him. He was ready to go instantly, but I told him it would still be a couple of hours. He asked to go several times and was more than ready when we finally started to leave. His new school is very closed to his old school so as soon as I turned to go towards it he started yelling “no”. It was so hard on him to abruptly stop going to school. He didn’t understand it at all. I still can’t believe it so how could he possibly understand it all. We had to wait for a moment to see his teacher, but I was quite pleased with everything once we meet her. And luckily the iPad will stay at school. This school year feels so unknown, but I feel like it will be a great year for him. All we can do is one day at a time. I try not to show him how stressed I am even though I know he can see it. When we got home he seemed to be calmer than he has been in quite a long time. It was like he knew that he would be getting some of his routine back and it felt better for him. The night went quickly and hopefully without the fountain on maybe he will sleep past four and so will I. Keep dreaming of a better tomorrow. Know that you can make a difference. Smile and the world will smile with you. Smiles to all and donut daze!
