I was woken this morning by the sound of Lily crying. When I went into her, she was hiding beneath her blanket sobbing away. I asked her what was the matter? She replied “I don’t want to go to school” I told her it was the school holidays. So she came out from the blanket and cheered up. It’s fair to say I am really worried about Lily.
Next Monday I am expecting this to be repeated. I don’t know what I can do to stop it either. Myself and Natalie have been talking over the school situation. We really don’t know what to do about it. Anyone who can help? It would be appreciated. Feel free to leave a comment or contact us directly through the email.
We had arranged for Lily to go to her cousins house. The one she saw yesterday. When I reminded her about that, she really cheered up. My brother came to pick her up and she went happily. After about 10 cuddles. Lily really doesn’t like leaving us. But she will, all be it slightly reluctantly if she’s going somewhere she likes.
An afternoon with Jack
That left me with just Jack for the afternoon. As he goes out with carers on Mondays. We just stayed at home. He wanted me to watch some episodes of Pokemon with him. Whilst also building some Lego. He got so many sets for Christmas and his birthday. I don’t think even half of them are built yet. This Lego Ninjago set is the one we are building currently. (Affiliate link)
Jack seemed to enjoy the fact I was doing his Lego for him. So he started playing on his Switch and left me to it. It wasn’t finished by the time he went out. So we agreed to finish it tomorrow.
I picked Lily up from her cousins. She had a really nice time, which was great. She didn’t want to come home, and got upset when it was time to leave. So we arranged for her to see him again tomorrow. It’s good that we were able to do that. But it’s another moment where I am really worried about Lily. She has always not liked leaving places. But she got really upset.
It feels like she is crying for help. But I don’t know how to help her. What do I do? It’s going to take a lot of thinking and guess work. To try and uncover what she needs. But we will get there. Just like we have done with Jack in the past.
