I've just received a phone call from Little Prince's Teacher at school. After I got over the panic of seeing school's number pop up on the phone, I was THRILLED to hear what she had to say. She had brought Little Prince to the office with her to ring me, so that he could hear what she had to say too. He has struggled for so long, he needs every boost to his confidence he can get, so thank you for that too Teacher. Apparently he has just written FIVE PAGES of LEGIBLE work!! That is the most he has EVER managed :-) Normally if he manages a sentence or two that is considered a success!! This is a HUGE HUGE deal and I can't express how proud I am of my Little Prince :-) Its overwhelming and I'm almost in tears!
Teacher also said that he didn't eat much lunch today, and said he felt sick :-( She asked if we could send in some snacks for him next week, so that if he gets hungry he has something to eat. I'll send him with some fruit and I'm sure Teacher will encourage him to eat if he needs to. I've been researching his medication and some children regain their appetite once their bodies have got used to the medicine, and others don't - so we'll just have to keep a close eye on him and see how he gets on. Teacher also told me that he has still been fidgety, but nothing like he normally is! This is amazing progress and I can't believe that is only his second day of taking the medicine! And because its had such a dramatic affect and so immediately it proves that Little Prince has got ADHD, as if it was anything else making him so energetic and impulsive the medication would not have an effect! I feel vindicated :-) And I can't resist an "Up yours!!" to the school gate mafia mums!!! Naughty but satisfying :-)
