So difficult child has an overnight fieldtrip at the end of the month, as far as he can maintain his behavior. The school has really stepped up to the plate to help him get his missing assignments done, if he has one then he goes to a study hall instead of recess. This has been working quite well, and makes home life much better and his teacher likes it as then I am not e-mailing her all the time. I went to an info night tonight. The schedule is so full. It goes like so leave school at 9:30am stop at timberline lodge for tour and lunch 12:30 - 2:30pm arrive zoo 4:30 dinner 5pm after hours zoo activities 6pm to 10:30pm (difficult child is asleep by 8:30 -9pm every night!!!) Lights out at 11pm Up at 7am breakfast then zoo activities to 12:00pm leave zoo home 4:30pm OMG, he has to maintain from 9:30am to 11pm???!!! this is really freaking me out. Right now I am reactive, and I will not be tommorrow. I almost wish I was not going, as then I would not be there to see what happens if he cannot maintain. I figure I will either put his patch on really late, or see if I can get just 1 short term pill, like focalin, to give him when he takes his patch off. I would want to trial that here at home first before doing it around a whole bunch of others. It will be very hard for him to maintain with all that ruckus around him, but then with all his friends around that could help him behave better due to peer pressure(this has never happened in the past at school, maybe a field trip will be different). Sorry, I am just having a major anxiety issue about this right now. On the positive side, the kids at his school have been talking about middle school open houses, and difficult child said he did not have open house this week, his school x was not going to be doing open house as they already had theirs. Many of the other kids were telling him how lucky he was to go to x, they were jelous. Major good thing for him, a status thing. I am hoping that this will show him how cool school x.
