Hubby and I ventured to the beach this passed weekend to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. Lil' Man went to a new respite home. Out of the respite homes we have used in the passed this one was the best. However I don't think she understood that Lil' Man has brain damage, and isnt just "bad". He had one major rage on Saturday, partly because he was in a new environment, and partly because he was over tired. He had stayed up too late the night before, and missed his afternoon nap.
I just want to yell follow the damn schedule people.
Despite the phone call on Saturday letting us know that Lil' Man had a rage, we still had a great time. We walked the beach, ventured across the water for some sea food, visited a historic plantation, swim in the ocean, shopped and relaxed in the hot tub. Oh we even slept till NINE!
I feel guilty using respite, but the mental health break is good for all us, even when it takes us a few days to get the kiddo back on track.
