Assume the position

Of late, that position in our house is lying face down on the floor crying- if you are Little Bug.  This move has been the most difficult for him by far.  He has begun to have some trouble with potty training. At one point, he had three accidents in roughly an hour.  His self injuring- specifically biting, hitting, and scratching himself- has increased in frequency.

Nick and I were kinda taken off guard by how challenging this has been for Little Bug.  Last time we moved, we had a week to do it in and although it was challenging, Little Bug was not as stressed.  This time we had over a month.  The house closed on December 9 and we didn't move until January 20, however the change has been tremendous.

I wish with all my heart there was a way to make this better.  We have included him in every step of the way- looking for houses, getting the paperwork signed, he painted and decorated his room, and helping with general tasks around the house.  We don't have any more suggestions.

Could it actually be possible that the long time to move played a part in the challenges now? With everything being so sudden the last time around, it's almost like he had no choice but to accept it, and maybe this is just harder because you "lived" in 2 places for a bit.
