Tigger got suspended today He's been doing great at school but was very crabby the last week or so. Today, he had a pair of scissors in his hand when he got mad. I don't have the whole story, I know lots of paper and the cover to his notebook got cut up. He swung at a kid with the hand holding the scissors (but didn't connect). They wanted to do an OOS today and Monday but I actually have paid employment lined up for tomorrow so they agreed to have him serve ISS tomorrow and OOS on Monday. I love that they were willing to work with me on that! I really need the money with Christmas coming so soon. He will miss the field trip on Monday but that could actually be a good thing as it is with his old class and some of those boys are really struggling right now. He will be bummed but hopefully he will get that he has to put the scissors away when he gets mad. (He said he was afraid that if he gave them the scissors when the teacher asked for them that he wouldn't get them back.) When I got to the school, he was cleaning the classroom and when I sat down he crawled onto my lap and put his head on my shoulder. He loses his verbal skills when he gets upset but trying to piece together his limited communication, I think what happened was two of the other boys started calling him names and his feelings got hurt, it escalated and....at least 2 kids suspended and I don't know about the 3rd. I really, really need to stay at work all 14 hours tomorrow. I'm hoping I can get a few more days with this company this year. (They have full time staff but several weekend per year they need 'extras' and it pays about $150/day. Tigger is sounds asleep so hoepfully he will have a good day tomorrow.
