Alyssa will be attending a different school this year. When I initially found out I took a day to be sad. Janet (her teacher from last year) is just such an amazing and caring person that she has left huge shoes to fill. I spoke to Alyssa’s new teacher on Monday and she seems very nice. It is still going to take some adjusting though. Also, it just seems like so so very much to have to “dump” on someone. Right now there is *so* much that is up in the air that I don’t even have a full grasp of what is going on with my kid. LOL! Maybe a stranger will be better suited to just take things as they are.
We went to open house today. Neil even got home in time!! It was a bit chaotic because all of the AM and PM kiddos were there. However, we found out that as of now there are only 5 kids in Alyssa’s class. It is quite exciting that she’ll get to begin with such a low ratio of students to adults. The aide asked us during open house if we had time to hang out after to talk. Of course we did. We sat and chatted about the Cliff Notes version of Alyssa. I always feel like such an over talker…because there is *so* much information! Especially right now. We talked about goals and outcomes and just working on making this year the best it could be for now. I offered to come into class for the first day or two but the teacher would rather see how Alyssa does. I know she’ll do fine and I’m respecting the fact that we are coming in at the start of a new year. Last year the kiddos that were already in class had their routine established. It would stink to make adjustment harder for other kids. Plus, we have phone contact and of course e-mail. Overall, if I’d never met Janet I wouldn’t have been even a teeny bit sad that Mrs. K was Alyssa’s new teacher. Afterall, she is a nice woman who seems caring and kind. Additionally her aide seems super sweet as well. However, knowing Janet… I was a little …ok a LOT sad. I fought back tears but I know that Alyssa will have a great year. Also, on eof the little boys in her class was in her class last year 🙂 So, that is awesome!
On a completely different note, feeding is still a bit problematic. However, she is definitely vomiting less. We’ll get there! One day at a time. I am going to call Windrose and see if maybe they have some advice. 🙂 They are so nice!
Now… we just have to survive the weekend and it’s back to school!!!
