Y3 - 164/365: A New You?
This past weekend Matt and I have seen a new side to Ryan that has started to open our eyes with what to expect in the near future. He seems to throw an absolute fit for any reason at all...having his bum chnaged, his mouth wiped, or even being told something isn't for him. We've sussed that it's down to him being frustrated that he has a genuine need he wants to communicate, but doesn't yet have the verbal capacity to vocalise what he wants.
For now, we're trying to remain as calm as possible and help or offer an explanation when we can.
Distraction is another great tool we like to use. Looks like it's working on Matt, nicely.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
