so being fairly new to this lifestyle of living with a difficult child (its been 2 years but i am just now realizing that this is a real problem), how does one explain a really good day??? this morning my difficult child came into our room fully dressed, hat and all (dressing in the morning is normally very stressful)- he stated that he was ready for his friends birthday party (to which he normally gets very anxious about). he went to the party happily (never happens), and didnt even care to know what gift/toy we were giving to this freinds (AGAIN- never happens- he will usually try to convince us to let him keep whatever present and opt to not go to the party). after the party he came home with an UNEATEN chocolate bar, asked to go bike riding, ate an APPLE and happily agreed to the dinner that we were all having!!!! my husband says that it is a case of the 'body snachers' and wonders where his son really is?? how does one explain a day like this? obviously i am grateful for a 'break' from the yelling, time outs , meltdowns etc. but its a bit confusing for us. any thoughts??
