I am very pleased to say that Bright Eyes has had a great day. Not too much defiance, hardly any grizzling or bossiness and lots of smiles, fun and eye contact.
In fact, as well as 'playing together' in our RDI lab time, he came in to my room at the end of my nap and we spent 20 minutes tumbling all over the bed together. "Get up Mum," he kept saying.
So we're off this week for our 'Relationship Development Assessment' which is where we work with our consultant for six sessions over 4 days, looking at what Bright Eyes can do, and what we do, and working out how best to attack the next six months.
I'm looking forward to it... and I think we all need it. See you all soon!
