I'm thinking winter break was too long!  lol

Is anyone else ready to get back to the routine, normal life?

This break has been easier for us..DS adapted well and I'm getting to work on time.

I agree, it's too long!

Nick has been doing ok since my nephew has been at his dad's for the last 4 days. But he is supposed to be home today and it's going to be hard for the next week. Today has been a lot of small meltdowns. It's just going to take him to be aggravated once for a big one that's going to be hard to get him out of.

I do appreciate the time my boys spend apart . We had a full house with grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins. Ds has been expressive and social. He is having issues with his sharing, but is excited every day.

We're doing ok so far.  Usually my son melts to out of routine, but he has been really good.  We start back with ABA and some therapies tomorrow, just not school, so I think we'll make it.

My daughter has been losing it since day one, so yes, definitely ready for things to go back to normal. She's getting insanely stir crazy in this house, even though going to other people's houses is worse! I can't win.

I enjoy the time off but my son is better behaved over all when he is in school and on a routine. He has been sick all break. He has pneumonia. I am hesitant for school to start back up worrying what he will pick up. He chews on his hands, his shirt, and objects. He is 4. Anyone have Any advice on that? We try to keep his hands clean, remind him not to chew on stuff, and I took wipes for his hands to school.

It is funny that I was just thinking about my son chewing. It has gotten bad over the break. We use a chewy tube. It's mainly for home and the car. But he will chew on it. I just constantly say, "no chewing on your fingers, clothes etc." then I hand him the chewy tube and say that this is ok. It usually works. It just means they need some sort of input that they are not getting.

I hope he feels better soon that's hard when they are sick like that.

Meh, Sams only been going to 1.5 hours of school (m before holiday break) and hasn't been in school full time since 11/13... Im not looking forward to the daily fight again, until we secure our new placement (feb or march?) so Ill take the break... Lol...

I have been thinking about ordering some chewy tubes. I wonder what input he needs? Thanks, I hope he feels better soon too.

The winter break here is 3 weeks long. I am thankful my dd gets ESY and will start a week of school tomorrow.
