Proud of My Son II

When I picked Eddie up from school, I asked him how his day went, he usually says, "I have 2 (or 3) recesses and no fire drills." But today, he said, "Guess how many recesses I had?" I said, "3". He then asked, "Guess how many fire drills I had?" I replied, "0". He said, "No, we had one fire drill today!"

So, I asked if he was okay and how he did. He said he was fine. I told him I was really proud of him and reminded him that I told him yesterday that each time he has a fire drill, he should remember that, although it scares him, he will be okay and that he will make it through. He said, "yeah".

I then asked if anyone said he did a good job or not. He said that one of his classmates, C., said, "Good job, Eddie!" and his teacher, Mrs. M., said the same.

Great job, Eddie! I'm proud of you again!

(See my earlier post from last spring about Eddie and fire drills.)

Thank you both for congratulating Eddie. We've had this issue since he started going to school. It's hard and he still gets anxious, but he's learning to deal with it. He's a trooper!
