I’ve been asked a lot at work about Matt’s reaction to hurting my hand and I’m sure a lot of you are curious too.
I wasn’t really angry at him for it because it was a case of my hand getting in the way of a meltdown. I should have known better. I did tell him that the fit he threw was unacceptable.
When we got home Matt asked if my hand was hurt because he noticed it was wrapped up. I explained to him that it was and why.
My hubby and I both discussed with him that his actions hurt me and that he can’t act like that anymore. My hubby told him that he is now taking him to daycare instead of me because he was acting inappropriately.
Matt just kind of stood around for a few minutes and then climbed up next to me and snuggled. I knew then that he realized what he had done and he was sorry. Matt never snuggles unless sick or remorseful.
I promised this last night but I wasn’t up to the challenge.
Matty had an awesome time playing golf. He was hesitant to get out of the car at first. As I said before, we have tried to do this for the past 3 years but he wouldn’t leave the car. We think he thought it was a dr.’s office.
I took my 2 other children with me and he saw they weren’t scared so followed us to the course. Since he is a beginner he is a level 1. I learned that there are level 1′s & 2′s. Level 2′s actually play a 9 hole game of golf & are usually the mentally handicapped adults who have been playing for years.
Level 1′s do more of a skill type competition. On the driving range they have to hit a ball with a wood & an iron club. They are scored by how far they whack the ball with each. Then they go to the putting range and do the same thing with the putter but they get extra pts if they can get it in the hole.
At first Matt tried to swing the club like a baseball bat! The lady helping him was one of our clients at work. I was so scared he was going to whack her in the head. I told my coworkers the next day that if he had I was going to come to work & play dumb. He never did though. Once he hit a few balls he started to like it and get into the swing if things.
There was one time that he swung and missed. When he brought the club back down he knocked it off the tee. He grabbed the ball and chucked it down the green…lol. His helper giggled too and told him that she knew exactly how he felt.
At the putting green he really got into it. She lined up the balls & he went behind her hitting them. Austin got comfortable then and started helping him with his stance & stuff. I think next week he will be his helper. Matt actually sunk a few in. He could have cared less but we were pretty excited.
My dad is letting us have his clubs for him to use. He told me he hadn’t picked them up in almost five years so we might as well make use of them.
So golf was a hit!
Just a little administrative note…
I love cleaning and rearranging furniture. And that is no exception for my blog. So sometime today I will be changing the look of my blog to welcome in summer . So you didn’t get lost. It’s still me but summery!!
