So a couple weekends ago difficult child went to a friend's house for the afternoon and then to McDonalds and church with the family. Had a good time, seemed to do well. He got invited to go to the friend's birthday celebration tommorrow after school. The mom is picking several of the boys up and they are going to Red Robin's for dessert and then to the friend's new house (he is moving but will still be in the same school). So a. He has a friend. b. He got invited to friend's house. and for the best part c. He got invited back. He had a therapy appointment tommorrow and I asked him if he wanted to cancel it and he said yes. You bet your bottom dollar I cancelled the appointment and left therapist a voice mail explaining why. She has always said that stuff like this is more important to difficult child than her visits. He is so excited.
