Regression, progress and wow moments

When you look back at photos and see how advanced in certain areas Z was. When M was down on the weekend and they were spelling, it took me back to my mates wedding when Z was of similar age, he was doing his number bonds to 100 and could spell lots of words like...

Dirty Dancing The Classic Story On Stage.

I was * invited to see Dirty Dancing on stage at New Theatre. For those that follow my theatre reviews will know I'm rubbish at seeing films! And guess what, I've never seen Dirty Dancing either! From the theatre production I've taken the story to be a rich kid...

Remember the new born stage.

Remember the new born stages, the disturbed sleep the awake at silly hours? Leaps and autism at 6 is quite similar. The difference being at 6 no one is as sympathetic, you still have school to get to and work to do. There's no oh don't worry about the house work, try...

Thank you for helping him to find his voice!

Tuesday evening at 8.30 Z came to me with his pecs board, 'I want, McDonald's happy meal, chips'. At the moment it's I want everything! But after three times of him saying 'I want McDonald's happy meal chips', I said 'let's go!' Whilst eating his food he dropped the...

What is a teachers job?

When I was asking when Z's speech and language was starting I was told the teachers and lsa know what they are doing. As much as I love Z's teacher she is a teacher, she went to uni to be a teacher if she wanted to be a speech and language therapist she would have...

Infertility awareness week a year later.

Last hear I wrote about my journey to having Z you can catch that here, this year it's completely different. This time last year I was already on my hormones ready for embryo transfer, as we know that didn't work out, again you can read that one here. This year...

One term remaining.

In two days the Easter Holidays are over. We have one term of school left, one term that's it. Four weeks and a week off then the last seven weeks. Eleven weeks and that's this school year over. To think I was worried about Z, this year he's made so much progress in...

Chickenpox autism and refusals

The last day of school I was called in to collect Z he wasn't himself, a little warm and basically just saying every word he knew with a few spots on his belly. Chickenpox, even though they didn't quite look like the pox spots. I thought he may have had a sore throat...

Octopus soup !

Last night I was invited * to see octopus soup at New Theatre Cardiff. It was surprisingly busy for an opening night I did notice that the audience seemed of a more mature age. The actors were well known Nick Hancock ( They think it's all over) who plays Seymour ,...

Autism and emotions.

As much as the changes the last week has effected Z, these have been mentioned on Facebook and me making some sort of humour out of it it's kind of gone like this. Last week Z was quiet at home not quiet himself. Thursday I learned his teacher was off sick. That...

Fights and struggles.

When I hear or read other stories about families either at start of their autism journey or even many years in one thing always sticks out. Fights and struggles. Fighting for your child's rights, wants and needs. Struggling for people to accept autism, or if they...

Friendships

Friends they are funny little things right! Autism and friends are even funnier. I've said many times I have a great group of friends. Some enter quickly some leave just as fast! Those are just mine! The ones that stay around are the good ones. Even now at 35 I'm...
