Transition is hard for me too!


Everyone is going back to school next week but not April. She’s done.  April is 22 and done with public school.  All I know about IEP’s, schedules, dances,  inclusion, clubs and sports in high school are not necessary any more.   OK, I still have the boys but you get the picture.  April is now off to the world of full time work.  How did she go from a darling baby to and adult so quickly?  Transition is hard for ME.  I don’t like change that much.  All the IEP’s revolve around transition for our kids but what about us?  Sniff, sniff.  And now for a look back.

April has an interview tonight at a pre-school.  Her dream job.  Her words not mine.  And I am so proud of her but did I mention that transition is hard-FOR ME!
