Nothing major. Most of the time we see DD as her own person, b/c we just see her at home, where she is quick-witted and hilarious.
After a bunch of schedule changes due to the holidays, and snow, and various situations, we're back into our routine, which means we had Brownies for the first time since early December. It's a mixed troop with some girls nearing 10 and others still 6. DD is 8. Even with the 6 year olds in the troop, she's still the slowest processor of the bunch because, while she's getting more comfortable, she's still masking her true self and dealing with some major internal anxiety at meetings. This comes across as being dull and, TBH, not even close to the brightest person there. Couple that with a surprise skit this week that she held in a meltdown over but refused to participate in, and this is turning into a social disaster.
I get this so, so much. DS is very similar in that, at home he is in his comfort zone so we typically see him at his best ( with some tough moments here & there). School & other social activities a different story. Though he has made some progress when we see him with his peers it's a bit of a reality check.
I’m sorry; we’re there and it sucks. DD has done dance for a few years. They moved to a new studio, and we now have two classes in the lobby at once. She stresses about the crowded lobby, then refuses to get ready. She cried in class on Tuesday, because she thought I would forget to pick her up. I worry this will make her start to hate going to her favorite activity. We’re going to try a different day and see if it helps.
