First Time Valley Mam

 

 

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...

A – Z of autism 2019

It's that time again, my A-Z of autism for autism awareness week. Each year I've done this I never look back to see what's the same or not until after I've written them. 2016 2017 2018 And now 2019 A - Admire. I admire the sheer determination of Z on a daily basis. B...

Communication without spoken language.

Z's words are getting there, I couldn't say how many words he knows because that's loads. I couldn't say how many words he'll use to communicate because these vary with different people. He'll do things for me that he won't do for anyone else, yet There's things he'll...

15 years gone by.

15 years ago I remember like it was yesterday, eating doughnuts and drinking coffee in Clavier waiting on our children to come back from ski school.  The one day I left my phones behind, the one day there was no post to take back to the hotel to collect my phone even...
