I wish that our day had been as entertaining, it’s been a bit p a n t s.

D had major anxieties about doing after-school golf club this afternoon. They started this morning, continued all the way to school and although she went in okay in the end with her teacher, she was still very anxious, with her teacher saying she’d be around etc.

I picked up T first from his school, thinking “it’s a 20 minute walk if there is a problem”. It was nice to have some me and T time but I was clock-watching and wondering how she was getting on.

Not very well as it turned out. As soon as she saw me, she collapsed into a sobbing heap in the school corridor. Very very tired and very unhappy. The PE teachers (who she really likes) said that she had been very reluctant, very anxious and really hadn’t enjoyed it. I’d noticed that she was the youngest by about 3 years and the only girl in the group too. That shouldn’t have had a bearing if she had enjoyed it, but she didn’t. The teachers suggested that she shouldn’t be forced to attend next week (which kind of says it all).

The repercussions of this afternoon continued all the way home and at home until the end of the day. Meltdowns, stomping, shouting…you name it, we had it.

She’s had plenty of bear hugs and her melatonin and fingers crossed she sleeps well.

So, not a fantastic day but at least she’s settled now. I hope everyone’s had a good day, comments/RTs as ever welcomed. Thanks for reading Jx 😘

  1. Sorry it’s not been a great day – a bit similar for us last night/ this morning too. Looking forward to tomorrow being a better one! J was asleep on the sofa before 8:30 tonight so that’s already a lot better than last night.
