Aidan's First Suspension

Well, Aidan finally did it, he got kicked out of preschool. Thursday he woke up excited to go like normal, everything was going fine...until I tried to leave him there. I've wrote before about his antics at goodbye time. This was not one of those antics. He lost his dang mind and threw a HUGE tantrum. I waited outside until I thought he calmed down and then left. Not 10 minutes later I get a call from his teacher saying he won't calm down, he's kicking, hitting, screaming, throwing toys - just going nuts. She said they were gonna try to ignore him but if he didn't stop soon I'd have to come get him. 10 minutes after that I was picking him up. He was in a foul mood all day long! I had to take him to the chiropractor with me and he sat on the floor and screamed at me the entire time - it was awful. By 1 o'clock he had lost all of his toys, spent most of the time we had been home in his room, and didn't have a chance on Earth of watching his cartoons. He finally fell asleep around 3 and slept until 7:30, got up and ate dinner and went back to bed at 8:30! Obviously it takes a lot of energy to be such a jerk!
This morning he colored a card for his teachers to say he was sorry. He walked in, put his stuff up, kissed me, and walked over to a table to play with his friends. He never even looked back at me. How is that the same kid? Just when I think one of us isn't gonna make it...
