Pre-meet went well. Complete meltdown afterwards. Did as much preparation as we could. LO was terrified this morning and I was terrified for her (lots of trauma relating to taxis going to contact etc). Chaperone texted me to say arrived safely Journey home was fine too.
"NO, OF COURSE I DIDN'T LIKE GOING IN THE F***ING TAXI AS I B***** WELL WANTED TO STAY WITH YOU. But I'll go again tomorrow"
Am so pleased that she was able to explain herself and express her emotion about it - that's almost a first!
Mum to AS Big Fish (19, 16 years at home) and AS Little Minnow (13, almost 6 years at home), came separately, and now a wonderful, feisty horse who lets me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services and a top of the range adapted van provided by the council fulfilling their legal requirements!
