The one where I sheepishly sneak back in..
I'm ok. Thank You. Thank you for your comments on here. Thank you for your emails. Thank you for your PMs on EB. Thank you so very much. I'm ok.
More importantly, of course, he's ok too. Things were terrible there, for a few days. It broke our hearts, and it broke Alexander. But I'm pleased to report that he is back to his beautiful, sweet, tender self, earnestly going out of his way to please everybody around him.
His behaviour yesterday and today has been nothing short of perfect. Which (no pressure, little man) is what we're used to from him. He is the most wonderful child, joyous and full of "Thank You"s and "I Love You"s. It is such a pleasure to parent him, and we're so happy to welcome this happy son back.
Not sure what sparked last weeks' meltdown, though the general consensus is that he simply was worn out (much of his class was too, last week) and couldn't cope anymore.
We had a very quiet, relaxed weekend, where we gave him lots of positive attention and one on one time with each of us, as well as combined family time. We restricted computer and television, in favour of picnics with us, swings and slides with Sam, Basketball with Daddy and star watching with Mama. Saturday was still rough, but Sunday was blissful.
