Good morning. Ava would. not. get. on. the. bus. Her seatmate wasn't at the bus stop this morning, so she didn't have a peer to behave in front of. I tried to drag her from the car, but she held on tooth and claw, crying. I can't carry the girl any more. I told the bus driver to go on. I drove Ava to car line drop off and she threatened to not get out, but she eventually did, crying again. There is a sub at school today. Last night was good, however: no tears at bedtime. We started a "worry box" where she writes her worries down and stores them for safe keeping. She only woke up once in the night with worries and I was able to get her back down quickly. and she wrote some worries down this morning, too. But this is the first time I simply have not been able to get her physically ON the bus. Gotta go to work now!
Hope everyone had fun last night.
