The worst thing about having an only child with FXS is that I never know what is “normal” behavior and what is maybe a sign of problems.
For instance, this weekend Monkey was pretty much glued to me. I said on more than one occasion that I wished I had a way to tie him to my back so I would at least have my arms free. He was hanging on me constantly or asking for piggy back rides (he sign’s “pig” and says “back”, pretty darned cute and he came up with it all on his own.)
So..is this normal 4/5 year old behavior or a sign of anxiety?
