First day, First Grade

New beginnings are hard on Cub. He works so hard to appear typical. 

When he started kindergarten he was suddenly non-verbal at home. I panicked. I emailed the teacher to see how we was doing in the classroom and was assured he was dong great. Impossible. She can’t be serious. This kid was shutting down. Eating nothing. Going to bed at 6:00pm. Obviously this teacher had no idea what she was doing. Except, I was wrong, she turned out to be amazing, he just needed a week to adjust. 
So fast forward to first grade. Day numero uno. No food, no words, lethargic in his dad’s arms, wants physical touch, asleep at 5:45. No worries. This is Cub adjusting. Bring on first grade!!
