The uniforms are pressed, everything's labelled, the shadows are ready. If you're wondering what a shadow is, its kind of like a teacher's aide. My BCBA has recommended T2 have an ABA trained shadow full-time for at least the first 6 months. T2 knows the shadows who will be with him so it makes me feel so much better. This morning all the Kindy kids and parents met at the park. I was feeling anxious, actually nauseous. Would the boys behave? Would T2 cope or start doing really weird behaviours? Would the mum's be welcoming? When I first got their I felt so awkward. The boys took off on the equipment. And I took off to man the flying fox for all the kids. It was a good strategy. I got talking to a couple of parents while having something to do (dragging the flying fox up the wire many times!). Then I found a couple of parents I'd previously met and it was all good and everyone was really nice. I didn't stay long as T2 doesn't last much longer than 11/4 hours at the park and it was pretty hot. So we headed home on a good note.

You can buy iron on refills and sticky fillers. Its been VERY handy.
Then I discovered I had to get new anaphylaxis and asthma plans done for school tomorrow, so made a last minute trip to the medical centre, boys in tow. Whenever I go to the medical centre I take every electronic device we own. Today it was a Leappad, an iPad, a mini iPad, my Iphone and a 3DDS (I kid you not!). It makes the hour at the medical centre bearable...just. But we did it and we are all ready for the big day tomorrow.
