So many people ask me each day, “How’s your Megan doing?” and so I thought that I would briefly share with you all that, most of the time, she is doing amazingly well.
A couple of months ago I was well and truly at the end of my tether and yet since starting nursery two mornings a week (which she LOVES!!) and finding new ways to deal with her anger and frustration, she has made huge progress.
She has grown into a loving, sensitive, intuitive, affectionate little girl who admittedly will still lash out at times, but the biggest difference now is that she is hugely apologetic. She will tell us, “Me a good girl, me not angry!” as she showers us with kisses and although she still has issues with social situations, a dislike of other people, loud noises and change in routine, at home she is finally finding her place in the pecking order and being much kinder to her siblings.
I don’t expect miracles with her behaviour, and I still think that some of her issues are far more concerning than others, but the majority of the time she seems happier, her vocabulary is astounding and she is making progress every single day. And I have to be honest with you, I never thought that this day would come!
So for now, when people ask me, “How’s your Megan doing?” I tell them that she is unlike any other child I have ever met, hilariously funny, ridiculously beautiful, a whirlwind of craziness and, most of the time, an absolute joy to be around.
