I Want to Go Home!

I’ve been making a real push lately to make Adrian’s device available to him every time we get in the car.  I tried a few different locations including the seat next to him and in a holder made for a portable DVD player.  In the end, I decided to hook it to the back of the headrest in front of his seat with a bungee cord. 

We’ve had a difficult start to the school year so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised that on the way to school Adrian repeated the phrase “I want to go home” over and over.  I’m glad that at least now he has a way to express it.


  1. Oh I do so sympathise. My youngest has ‘hated’ school since he first started [or possibly just the transition TO school]. If it’s any solace, two weeks ago aged nearly 7 he is happy, enthusiastic and keen to go to school now that he has his first, only and best friend. Hope it happens sooner for you.
    Best wishes

  2. As it turns out, he was unhappy with good reason. In the process of fixing things up right now…. he should be back to begging to go to school soon enough.
