When difficult child was younger he used to wrestle (3rd, 4th, and I think 5th grade). He has not done any wrestling since then. He also is very out of shape. All of that being said we are really proud that he is going to do this. At the same time, husband and I are nervous for him. His social skills are so lacking and plus he is so over the top excited that if this doesn't work out he is going to be very disappointed. husband has been emailing the coach who sounds as if he doesn't think it will be a problem. There is at least one other child who also has a disability similar to difficult child's. The coach thinks having difficult child and this other child on the team will be a great experience for both the team and the two kids. Of course, he has been driving us nuts all weekend long! He found out Thursday that it started on Monday and that he needed a physical. Fortunately when I called I was able to get him an appointment for Friday morning so I had to take Friday morning off which I didn't really mind! All weekend long he has been asking us a ton of questions (that we have no idea the answers too-of course-he is obsessing and asking us the same questions). He also is bugging us to get him wrestling shoes which we said no to until he practices at least a week and decides he really wants to stick with it. He is also very giddy-thankfully not quite manic! He woke up early yesterday and today because he is so excited. Knowing him he'll probably be up by 3 in the morning tomorrow-ugh! Please keep a good thought that this works well for him! He needs something to do!
