murphy kicks 1st grade butt

Murphy made this fish at school, all by himself! We just got back from his conference/IEP. It was all positive and wonderful! I am so used to leaving the school and feeling like I have been hit by a truck. I usually feel worn out like I have the flu, and my face feels dry and puffy from crying and I have to blow my nose 75 times. But not today! Today, we are on top of the world. Murphy is always liked by his teachers, but usually he has a negative IEP because of all the goals he's not meeting, or he's biting, or his behaviours are so bad... He's sitting well at groups this year, he's participating and initiating. He's communicating his wants. And this year instead of biting when he is mad, he is letting them know by blowing into his fist. I'm can't even think of everything, I am so jittery and happy.
We could tell a big diference already at home. Hearing it from the school makes it set in stone, it's a fact. It's true. It's really happening.
I am going to figure out how to hang this on the wall in the kitchen. So we can look at it everyday, and if I'm being honest: so everyone who comes over can see it too. I haven't even had my coffee today, but I feel like I drank a whole pot.

Maybe that's why Murphy didn't want to color his ocean animal. He couldn't be bothered. He already did it in school!

He is doing so well. It is so much better than when the only words he would say were "blue's clues". Yay Murphy!
