Like everyone, we have days both good and bad.
A good day is like last Tuesday: Get Antony to school without fuss, he amazes us all by sitting through a 90 minute long pantomime, eats his lunch and his tea and goes to bed without complaint.
A bad day… well, I don’t have specific examples, but those are the ones where Antony comes home with bumped head notes where he’s had a meltdown and headbutted a door. The ones where he refuses to eat his tea, the ones where he works himself up into a kicking, screaming mess because he wanted to wear a coat even though he’s indoors and it’s really warm. The ones where we put on our smiles and pretend that it’s all okay and that we’re coping. The ones that end with us wondering what we’re doing wrong.
Thankfully the good days far outweigh the bad. Both Antony and Lucas bring us so much happiness, and we wouldn’t change them for the world because who they are is amazing. But we are only human.
