This morning Monkey did not start whining until we were in the building and did not escalate to tears until we were in the classroom. We set Monkey up at the sink with some water and bubbles and we left him, still crying, with his teacher and his friend R. By the time we walked up the ramp and got to the vehicle one of the aides came out to let us know that he had stopped crying and was fine. That is a very good sign. Yesterday he cried for about 10 minutes after we left.
Hopefully he has a better day today and we can regroup over the weekend.
