When I wrote this post I really thought that we might be turning a corner.
I was wrong. I think he is actually worse with the weather now. Maybe worse than ever.
He’s ok at school, but at home – every waking minute of his day is consumed with whether or not there are clouds, if it will rain/thunder/hail/, if there will be stars at night, if it’s too cold for thunder.
In the shower he can’t see out windows. He can’t see or hear the wind. Can’t hear any thunder.
We have limited his showers to 2 a day. Ten minutes each.
On more than one occasion he has handed me the phone, crying and demanded I call the weather man and “make him stop all of this!“
We haven’t had too much thunder this year, so I’m not really sure what he’ll do. The last storm woke him up crying through the night. He put his headphones on and watched a dvd.
We were hoping that this would be the year that he could make peace with the weather but he’s not there. Yet.
