Day three of no school and no therapy and we survived, barely! The day ended with a huge meltdown from Trenton. However, during the meltdown he had a form of communication with me! In the beginning of his meltdown he is going to the door crying and bringing my shoes to me. This tells me that he wants to go somewhere. I try to inform him that its cold outside and the roads have ice on them. When he realizes I am not taking him anywhere he starts running full force into a wall and the same to our couch. This continues for ten minutes. In order to stop this behavior, I bring him his iPad. I show him his communication app and he hits the button for my car. The page looks like this...
He continues to keep crying and kicking. I ran outside to look in my car to make sure we didn't leave a toy in there that he wants. No toy in my car.
I go inside and show him his iPad again. This time he hits the "go" button on his iPad. That page looks like this..
No school again tomorrow but I am taking him to therapy. We still had no water all day today. However, in the middle of making this post, our water came on!!! Thank Goodness!!! Three days with frozen pipes was enough for me!!
