I still had to pretty much drag Nove out of bed, but at least it wasn’t a fight.
She was being very clingy so she had to hug me as I tried to walk us into the living room.
Then, she wanted help (no, she wanted me to do it all!) with getting dressed. But, she allowed me to dress her and wanted to cuddle before we had to leave. She even let me out of her sight for a while so I could get dressed and go warm up the car.
When she got off the bus she was being her typical not – so – verbal 2nd grade self though. She refused verbally and physically to let me zip her coat andlet me tell you, it was 2 degrees from freezing. The kind of cold where it’s nearly 10 degrees colder in the shade and in the wind. But she did not even notice. This is typical for her also.
However, I got myself a nice new short coat today and I was toasty except where my nose stuck out. For the record, I haven’t had a new warm coat in years. The one I’ve been wearing is about 2 sizes too big and is a heavy cotton canvas barn style coat. Because it is big, the cold rushes in around the hands and neck so it never kept me very warm, despite being a really nice jacket.
Anyway, back to the story……….
Wednesdays, she has a drum group after school through her case management system. Her driver came a little late and Nove wasn’t sure she wanted to go, but Zeta and I convinced her. Again, I had to put her shoes on. (this girl KNOWS how and CAN dress herself)
She had a good time, got along with the other boys in the van and did well at group according to Zeta, upon her arrival home. She even told me that her class went to the high school today to practice for their Christmas concert which is tomorrow night.
But, she wouldn’t tell me anything about anything directly after school. That’s so typical of her.
