A few weeks ago we tried to give Monkey a pillow in his crib. He’d never had one before and he didn’t seem to want one. He would try to throw it out of the crib or sleep on the opposite end of the crib from it.
Then we went to stay with Grammy and Auntie. Monkey was using the pillows there, he even tried to steal MINE. A couple nights ago I decided to try again with the pillow in the crib and wouldn’t you know it, he LOVES it. Instead of scooting and rolling all over the crib all night he stays put sleeping with his head on that pillow. It’s amazing. It gives me hope that he’ll be able to sleep in a big boy bed soon.
I wonder how long before he’ll sleep with sheets and a blanket other than his favorite blanky?
Monkey boy and I are home today. He melted down during our team meeting this morning with his therapists so I decided to just stay home with him. He’s had a very busy and upside down week so I think he deserves it.
We’re getting jerked around by Cambridge Public Schools. They’ve only set up 2 of the 6 evaluations we need to have done by mid-March, NONE are completed. They’re not returning my calls. I’m unimpressed with their process. I’m unimpressed by the fact that we’ve had to hire an advocate (which is NOT cheap) because it was pretty clear they were not going to play nice.
Everyone says we need to try to get along but they’re not trying to get along with us. They told us how they’re going to proceed and it doesn’t seem to matter that their process is illegal and it doesn’t seem to matter what we think. Bah. They suck.
