And I'm back in the game!

Welcome back to the world Skipper. Mostly.

Today I took EJ to MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) - which is a group designed to give Mum's some love, support and time out. For over 18 months, EJ has refused to go. He hates it there. The kids room is so echoey and loud. He has screamed his lungs out and was terrified of the place for ages, so I just didn't take him. We just didn't go anymore. I missed that adult interaction and chats with other mums, but I did all I could for my boy and didn't want him distressed anytime we drove anywhere near the venue.

Today I convinced him to go. Today he managed to go the whole session without screaming, crying and having a meltdown. He's been home for 3 hours, and there are no signs of ticks, jerks, rants, raves, or a meltdown. :)

Progress. Slowly but surely we are making progress.

Even better news? EJ said on the way out.... "Can we come back again?"


*happy dance*
