Today I saw my last ever class play, Ali is yr 6 now and once they go up to senior school they don’t do the class play.
Ali hate’s them with a passion, they are not for him and,to be honest, they have made his life miserable in weeks leading up to them, this one being no different. if you have read my pink/purple blog you will see that I won the battle. and Ali is dressed in blue. He never said a word, and with the exception of this picture which I took at the end, he wouldn’t even look forward. even here he wasn’t happy with having to turn around as there was still a lot of mum’s in the hall. people, Ali doesn’t do people!
From these picture’s you can see that while other kids may love the opportunity to take part in play’s and enjoy doing them. Ali doesn’t.
Now some may say that he should have to take part in these things, but if they knew the meltdown’s we have about it, if they knew how upset this makes him, how unsettled, then maybe they would understand.
I have never missed any of his class plays or Christmas plays. In fact, I have never missed any of the kid’s school productions. This was the first one ever that his dad missed due to work. we have always gone and watched both boys, but I have to say. I am so glad this is the last school class play I will ever have to go and watch. Now we just count down to the Christmas play, hopefully, now his teacher will understand the anguish Ali goes through and will think twice about what part he is put in.
This evening he had a smile on his face for the first time since they started practicing the play because he knew it was over.
