Do you ever feel like your life is one big Whack-A-Mole game?

I dropped Matthew off yesterday afternoon and he did great! He was so happy he wasn't crying that while he was standing in line, he turned around, pointed to his eyes and smiled at me. I was so relieved!

Then, after school, he was to play with his buddy J for a few minutes. He came out of the door happy and turned to wait for his new friend. J came out, went to him mom and said "Can I play with D right now?" Matthew's smile faded and he was so confused. Awww. Poor kid.

Then, after 15 min I had to take him to physio. He lost it. He had a 20 min meltdown in the car on the way. And again on the way home. And again as I was setting the table. And again as food was placed on the table. And again as food was placed on his plate. And again as he attempted to eat.

And, as of last night, the nightmares are back.

Got rid of the stress in one place, only to have it pop up in another. I suppose that was inevitable.

Whack-A-Mole games do end sometime, right?

I am glad his day went better. But I feel sad about his friend not playing with him. That is a hard part of school for a lot of kids. I hope he continues to enjoy his days at school though and to make more friends. I know it will happen for him. :) xx

Oh man...
Ok Universe, stop putting quarters in the Whack-A-Mole game. Matthew has got to catch a break. I hope he finds other friends soon. Thinking of you often! {hug}

Despite the tears and meltdowns (multiple?! Oh, man ...), you did see that glimmer of hope! For a while, at least ... And he felt it too (loved the part about pointing at his eyes ... how cute! And how astute!).

Yes, I know that mallet all too well ... with different situations than what's on your plate, but sometimes you just wish you had steel plates in your head. Praying for more rays of hope, each day more and more!
