Just popping by

17 Jul

Busy time of it on Planet JustGoodEnough of late – been away for two weeks in lovely sunny Hampshire, and it’s taken most of this week to recuperate from the journey back. Or so it seems to M, who has taken to some annoying (to the rest of us) behaviour. There have been lots of refusals to do even the simplest tasks, lots of screaming, punching and hitting, and a definite backslide into comfort habits like watching baby programmes on TV and the computer.

I know she is struggling – the holiday itself prompted a lot of changes that she had to process – for her “just” visiting a new town is anything but simple due to the anxieties it provokes – and we compounded the issue by stopping overnight on the way home, but her behaviour is very wearing. I have tried non stop to get her outside to bounce on the huge trampoline in the garden but she is fixated on using the small indoor one, which is lovely in one way because when she’s bouncing she isn’t hitting out or screaming BUT very annoying if you are trying to read quietly and all you get is squeaks and boi-i-i-ings.

I hope that she will start to calm soon, there have been signs today as she willingly got dressed this morning (a nice surprise) and has been somewhat less confrontational to B. I found out today who her teacher will be next year (we were away the last week of term) and she seems pleased as she knows the person in question, so that’s one potential problem dealt with before it kicks off.

Now we just need to get through the next four and a half weeks in one piece. Wish us luck!

    Welcome back lovely! 🙂
    Interesting reading what you’ve said about M and baby TV because Damien’s the same. He asks to have it on over all the other channels and it seems to calm him.
    We’re going away in August OMFG!!
    I might not make it back sane.
    Reading about M is just like life with Damien. He finished a week early because we all agreed that he wouldn’t be able to cope with the changes of routine. It’s very difficult for them and us.
    Great post. x

      Thanks Tracy, I am at my wit’s end with M atm as she is doing my nut in. I have finally got the pair of them into the garden and now she’s straight back in crying and shouting at me because there’s nothing to play with – oh if you could only see the garden!!

      I am being resolutely non sympathetic. Hang in there.
