Update-Meltdowns, bad days, and going places
I decided to go. Ds1 was doing a bit better after a nap. I thought change of scenery may help too. He did very well! He played great with the kids and stayed outside. He took his shoes off at obe point and left them who knows where but that was the worst that I saw! He did seek more solitary things to do or at least activities with fewer kids like blowing bubbles vs all on the trampoline. We did leave early since this part started at 7. I wanted his schedule to only be slightly off (30-40 min) instead of really off. So overall last night went well. We're paying for it a bit this morning but I don't think I'd change it. It was the break we both needed from each other and the house!
Op:Today is an overall bad day. Tonight we are supposed to meet up with another homeschool family. Mom is throwing a party (ya know the kind.. 31, tupperware, scentsy. Not those exactly.) and the kiddos are all going to play.
I think a new environment with new people after a day of constant meltdowns may be a bad idea. Leaving him home with dh isn't an option since dh won't be home.
What do you do on bad days when you've already told someone you'd meet up or have prior engagements?
