I, on the other hand, have been pretty nervous. First concern - there is one boy that Drew doesn't always get along with and he gets on Drew's nerves. I worry that as the evening wears on and as Drew gets tired, that the boy will push Drew's buttons and he won't be able to control himself and will get angry. I also worry that as he gets tired the tics will get worse and it will cause issues. The kids have never really said anything but things are tame and as excitement and tired creep in the increase.
Don't get me wrong I am thrilled he is being included and is having the experiences that all boys his age should have. I did have a long talk with him tonight about several things. I told him no matter what this boy did, Drew had to hold his temper and walk away. I also talked to him about the after effects of a sleep over. Being tired and grouchy and increased tics are two big ones. I wanted him to know what too expect. He did have some hesitation after we talked but I told him that we WANTED him to go and have a most awesome time but to know there could be some extra tics on Saturday.
He has been practicing with the new Nerf gun. I will talk to the mom tomorrow and give her a heads up. It feels a little strange because I usually let Drew control who he tells and how. Also trying to figure out how to handle evening meds. They make him sleepy and he will crash about 20 minutes after taking them. Not ideal for an EPIC NIGHT!.If he doesn't get them at all he won't sleep. ARG!!!!
I am sure i am over thinking all of this but that is what comes with entering into new Territory.
