Easing the Transition

Seth was pretty nervous his first day of school. He was brave though, and went right in. His teacher is lovely and invited me to stay for the morning meeting and I was able to talk with the kids about PANDAS and they were all really sweet and cute. They played a fun game, and Seth joined right in, and I felt like he was in a good place when I left.

A highlight of the first day was a substitute for PE class. This meant instead of formal class, they did X-Box hip-hop dance. He tied with one other student for highest score, which gave him a bit of street cred. Finally his MJ obsession was put to good use.

Today on the way into the school, several boys came running up from behind, greeting him, shouting, “Seth! Seth!” I think it made him feel welcome and happy.

One of them told me all about Seth’s dancing the day before.

Today he had art class, and no way, but guess what? A huge portrait of Michael Jackson was hanging on the wall in the art room. It gave him great comfort.

Two days in, he’s doing well.

The Fedora waits on the back seat of the car until I pick him up each afternoon.

    Smiles and hugs for your sweet boy. I can only imagine the chatter between him and Riley about their respective days at school.

    There’s no hat? WOW. Somehow I didn’t think that part of the uniform through. Brave boy!

    So happy to hear things are going well!! He is so multi-talented we were sure he would make out fine!! Way to go , Seth. Love you so much…….

    I’ve been wondering about the Fedora. And how is that DOG handling the transition? I think Michael Jackson is looking out for Seth in not so subtle ways.

    I’m with Carrie about MJ watching over your boy. And I hope that learning that he is a star minus the hat will ultimately honor him and his Seth-ness.
