Yesterday (Monday) was a wonderful day!
I decided to make Chloe a new flip book schedule. I was nervous that it would work. They haven’t lasted long in the past, but I needed to try again. She was actually excited to see it. She threw a 1 hour screaming fit last night because she lost movie time. She refused to come out of her Dad’s office and ran out of time. It was rough!! So I worked on the book after she went to sleep.
I had to keep her constantly busy or she would trail off. I had short, hands on activities for her to do. Stringing noodles, puzzles, kinetic sand and flarp. After lunch I brought in more academics. We sat on the couch and practiced addition and subtraction. She made her uncle a card and then worked on writing. We went outside for about an hour and then came in to make pumpkin muffins. Chloe ran off to the bathroom to sing in the mirror. She needed some “Chloe Time”. I let her do it for a bit and then reeled her back in for table activities.
Her table activites were cutting strips for cutting practice and she made a turkey for her Nana and Papaw. She got a bit lazy on the turkey, so I helped her cut out a few pieces, but she cut out several and colored them. She was excited that she is going to give it to her Nana and Papaw this week.
She was pretty hyper by 3:00, so I had to throw in board games to calm her down. I really was proud of her today. I hope this continues. It is a lot of work, but it is better than her screaming and being so upset. I just have to figure out when to get my downtime in. I am pretty much going all day long, but I guess if I was working thats what I would be doing.
Welcome to my new followers. I hope all of you have a great day.
