Not saying – Weds 10th Feb 2016

By | February 10, 2016

It’s been a strange day today, a complete contrast to yesterday – when D brought home her medal for Boccia.

Today there was no smile as she came down the stairs this afternoon, in fact she didn’t acknowledge us at school but walked out quickly and then sped around into a corner of the school grounds and huddled herself into a ball.  Not good indicators of her day.

She hasn’t wanted to answer prompts either and things didn’t improve after T – who is definitely looking a bit brighter today – told her she was “stroppy”.  Oh the wisdom of big brothers!

I still don’t know what happened today at school, there’s no indication in her diary and she still doesn’t want to talk about it.

I could try and ask her tomorrow morning but, I then run the risk that she’ll relive whatever it was and that will make tomorrow not go brilliantly.  I have to assume that, whatever it was, wasn’t too serious (although it may currently feel that way to D) don’t I?

Obviously I am very lucky that D is verbal and usually does communicate, eventually.  When I talk to other parents and they mention that there’s hardly ever anything in their non-verbal child’s diary, it does make me wonder how they would find out about their day.  I’m grateful (very) that we usually can.

Another day tomorrow, a better one I hope.

I’m lying in bed with the flu, have a catch up on your blog! I’ve read up to date, and am pleased that T is now eating something. Little A came out of school quite stroppy last week too, must’ve been something in the air! xx
