Getting poo in my hair was certainly a highlight today.
Apart from that, Freddie had an orthotics appointment and hurrah his feet have grown a little so some funky new shoes have been ordered for him. Jago came along for the ride and all in all it went fairly smoothly.
Freddie is always so super excited to go to school but for some reason he wasn’t this morning. Luckily, school is only five minutes away from the hospital but he was really sad and clingy when we got there.
I felt really sad having to leave him.
It’s so unusual for him to react that way. The great thing was though, that one of his TA’s came to collect him from reception. She scooped him up and cuddled him so he knew he was safe. She made him laugh a little. She told him what she had ordered him for lunch but asked if he wanted something different. They were going to go to the kitchen to choose again. His school teacher and the team around him are so genuinely caring and loving that although he was crying, I knew he was loved and seemed a little happier when she said he could get all the balls out to play with. He said he loved school when he got home. Phew. xx
