Trevy has always been Mr. Compliant. Happy Goes Lucky. Happy Being Trevy.
But lately we've noticed a blossoming pattern.
He's becoming Trevy The Opinionated! I dare you to try taking his iPad away! According to Mrs. Speech this is a wonderful developmental milestone to behold. To mommy & daddy however...it's becoming a parental challenge! Just when I thought I had being Trevy's mommy down pat too!
So when Miss.
CNA May May showed up early this morning. To drive Trevy to school rather than taking the bus like normal. Because today marks the first day of Trevy's pre-preschool ABA therapy. And his routine was turned on it's head. By yours truly.
He was having NONE OF IT!
None of it, I say!
It was absolutely heart wrenching watching them drive off. Trevy sobbing and reaching for me. Totally not grasping our desperate attempts at explaining he was still going to school. Saying anything we could think of to help him understand. His communication is coming along. But still so far to go!
Miss. May May called a handful of minutes later (the school is literally a hop, skip and jump away!) to say she had to hold his hand the whole drive. But once in the school he perked right up! And was back to Happy Hungry to Learn New Things Trevy! And sent this picture to prove it!
|blurry yes - but I think you can tell he's happy picking out a book to read!|
