Mike has been stressed and extra difficult in school and home the last 3 weeks or so. He has been biting and sucking on his shirt for about 2 weeks. 2 days ago started biting on his arms and leaving little hicky/bruise marks.
Then there is today. The school had a big Mr. Goldenburg send off at the begining of the day. Every Friday all 1st - 5th graders get together outside to do the "Bulldog Boogie" adn national anthem. It is a performing arts school so they have there own song they have written and recorded complete with a choreographed dance. Today was "Mr. Goldenburg's last Bulldog Boogie". They did the usual stuff along with a number of special things done by different classes to honor the principal ending with a huge bulldog boogie with the whole school (K-8) and all the parents. Whole thing Lasted an hour.
Well at the end on the way in to school Mike was in tears. He looked totally shaken up and the front of his shirt was soaked from chewing on it. I didn't get to check out his arms yet. He had sat with his class in the front and parents in the back. I felt horrible because had I been thinking about how stressed he would be or had noticed during the thing I would have pulled him out to the playground or something.
I feel so bad for the poor guy. I went to see him at his class and asked if he wanted to go for a walk, but he was being the tough guy and said, No thanks mom.
Can't wait until today is done. Think I will take him for an ice cream.
