Special Needs Diary #14 – Autism Assessment & Orthopaedic Shoes

It already feels like that snowy, winter wonderland we had last week was such a long time ago doesn’t it?! I keep looking at my photos wishing I’d taken more. It was just such a beautiful week. However, for us it also was a pretty awful week for P1. Change effects her hugely as you will know if you’ve followed …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Extreme Tiredness

I’ve already failed miserably at this so won’t promise I’ll be joining in every Sunday, but I’ll do my best! This Sunday’s photo is from Wednesday. The previous evening P2 was exhausted.

P2’s First Parents Evening

I just love how things are getting technology based and that you can now book parent evening slots online now! So much easier. We teased P2 about parents evening from the moment we booked it.

Going To The Library

It feels like such a long time ago since reading a story at bedtime felt like a chore. I never used to see the importance of books despite my own love for reading and writing. But I also experienced mum guilt surrounding the topic of bedtime story time and eventually I made it part of our routine. I don’t feel …

Forest School For Toddlers

Meterologically Spring has started. I can’t tell you just how happy I am to see the back of winter. I’ve been a proper recluse in terms of our outdoor adventures. I’ve avoided the park, we’ve not really been to any National Trust places and I’ve definitely preferred the comfort of my home and my joggers. But with Spring, comes the …

Special Needs Diary #12 – Occupational Therapist Assessment

I’m not really scared of hospitals or medical appointments anymore.

To be honest I am quite glad to see the back of this school year. I really don’t know why but I feel like we need a fresh start in the motivational department. We most certainly need a break from early rushed mornings too. I’ve had various emails from the class reps about donations and cards for the teachers from …

A Thank You Teacher Gift & Goodbye To Year 1

I’ve never been one buys teachers gifts. I didn’t even get the nursery that P1 went to for three years a gift to say thank you. That’s how awful I am. I always mean to but then forget. This year, I opted out of the class collection as we wanted to get something for P1s teacher ourselves. I felt a …

Today we said goodbye to getting up at 7:45am. We said goodbye to breakfast at 8:10am. We said goodbye to leaving the home at 8:35 to get to school for 8:40am. We said goodbye to P1 walking the whole journey. Today we said goodbye to being home by 9am. We said goodbye to our afternoons, leaving at 2:35 and being …
