The start of something great

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but I’ve been super busy and exhausted.  Carter started Pre-K last week and it’s been so much better than I expected. He actually wakes up in the morning in a good mood, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats his breakfast and watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse without any issues or resistance (except today).

When we get to school in the morning he pretty much runs over to meet his class. I just can’t believe how well he’s adjusted. He participates in class and doesn’t have any problems (except yesterday). Okay, so he has had a couple of issues with his ‘tude once or twice, but he’s doing far better than I imagined. Its not that I didn’t have faith or confidence in him, it’s just that I know how he can be and how he can react to different people, environments and situations.  I prepared myself for the bad and the ugly, but I got the good, and I’m very excited about that.  He’s proving me wrong and for once, I don’t mind being wrong.

I just can’t wait to see how much Carter grows and progresses. I’m even thinking about putting him on a school bus. Testing the waters. We’ll see how that goes.

  1. Its awesome to see them get into their routine of school. With autism they thrive on it. When they are at home for summer, as much as we love having them around, because that’s where the little habits come out…

    But, when you see them at school, they are a whole new person because its so structured.

    Kids love to dump the tough stuff on the parents cuz that’s where they are comfortable. We as parents don’t have the energy that a whole group does to keep them occupied. We have households to run.

    This reminded me to make sure I go visit the school more this year to see my kid in action.

    My daughter is 16 and our sights are on the future of not having school forever. Its nice to get a glance of her carving out her place in the world.


    1. I agree. I love that he has structure at school. He gets to see the other kids following directions and participating and it rubs off on him. I love peeking into his class and watching him enjoy school and doing things he normally doesn’t do at home.
