Errr October 27, 2018

Major motherhood fail today.

I took my son to a festival, and he absolutely hated being outside. He refused to explore or stand. So, we did nothing.

While sitting down, he trolled texted quotes from a movie…here’s the scene

He let me step away for coffee, and he texted me “Mom” eleven times. He likes likes to role-play a particular Stewie scene. He thinks it’s funny because his dad and I hate Family Guy. https://youtu.be/aOLxQGLJouI

Errr. I don’t know what to do to motivate him to go outside. All he wants to do is sit at his computer or play video games.

As a reward for staying a few hours at the festival, he’ll to spend most of tomorrow afternoon in the indoor lazy river pool. It’ll be pure torture for me. Once we are in the pool, he’ll refuse to ever leave. Seriously, I’ll have to call his dad to tell him to get out of the pool.

His IEP to return back to public school is November 5th. He needs more practice going outside and being around other people. Maybe I can get him to go to a farm, hay ride, and another festival. Anything to get him walking. But whatever we choose to do is always something he doesn’t really want to do. He’s always miserable, and I feel like I’m forcing him to do stuff. I’m unable to engage him.

I doubt the school will allow him to play on his iPad all day. This transistion will be very difficult for him.
