First of all, after today, I'm going to be taking two weeks off. Work is shutdown for our summer break and the kids will be spending time with their grandparents, so I'm going to give myself a little holiday. I'll be back to regular posting on August 8th.
Things have not been going particularly smoothly here over the weekend. Alex left his Rosita toy in the van on Friday and is upset about Nathan getting to go first to see Memee and Avi. This has given us a lot of verbal opposition, some headbanging, and most frustratingly, a regression on toileting.
Alex has only had one success in the toilet in the last week and he is one letter away from earning his trip to Montreal. We've had a lot of production in the bucket and one accident, but only one production in the toilet. Dave and I are coming up with our plan B on what to do if he doesn't earn his trip before he goes with his grandparents.
We knew the summer was going to be disruptive. There are always more behaviour issues as the schedule keeps shifting around and we suspected that toileting would be a particular challenge. It's a little depressing to be right, as he's done so well up to this point. But with consistency, we should be able to get him back on track.
