Speech and language therapy resumes!

Autism, when a child gets diagnosed that's it, therapy stops, why? Is it because they think a child with autism isn't worthy of the time? Money? Or that there's no point? Before his diagnosis he was getting speech therapy, ok two six week block sessions! He had food...

Thank you for giving him a little nudge, Jellybean !

I've said before I love Z's school, we're lucky he's not had a bad teacher yet! I read so many posts about how school doesn't work kids don't like it etc, but we don't have a problem, Z loves going and always goes home smelling of perfume ! This year so far his...

Made today day with a difference

7 years ago Z was made, every year since he was born we've celebrated made today Day. I wrote about the whole day here if you wanted to read about that chapter of our life before Z! 10th Feb, it's always an emotional day, how far we went to get our little miracle. How...

Autism isn’t labelling my child for free things.

Tonight I was at soft play. It was meant to be a Sen session, but because it was quiet it was opened to the public. A group of parents with screaming loud children may I add, these parents were discussing disabilities. It kind of went like this. Parent 1 "All these...

Forwards, backwards and guilt.

When he’s been so good going to the toilet you feel that you may have got the toilet training, then there's a few accidents in his pants. Tonight he came downstairs saying poo poo, I replied with aww not in your pants again, but no he wanted to go onto the toilet. Yes...

Green Day’s American Idiot the Musical

Was lucky to be invited * to see this at New Theatre Cardiff last night. I've been a Green Day fan since my college days and was looking forward to this for just under a year and it didn't disappoint. American idiot was released in 2004, and was inspired by American...

The hopes and dreams

This weekend was your due date. I'm pretty certain if you had made it you'd have been here by now. To believe it's been nine months. Nine months of living lives. For those few days when people said oh I'm sorry you were thought of. Those few days you mattered. For me...

First Ever Reading Book

So we've been back at school a week, it flew. First week of 2019 over and Z comes home with a reading book. He's been reading his books the Ten Little series and loves them for Christmas he had Ten Little Elves. He kept telling me Ten Little dinosaurs and Ten Little...

Christmas Day in an autism house

I kept telling Z it's Tuesday tomorrow meaning he thought it was school, 8.30 he's getting up! He didn't open a present he wouldn't open anything and took a book upstairs. I set up his marble run he loved his one last year, I stupidly thought a wooden one would be...

End of term one

Wow it only felt like yesterday I was writing this and we've already done 16 weeks in this class. So far this term I've seen a real improvement in Z's speech, he's really trying hard. Let's hope he'll get some speech therapy when he's assessed in January! As with any...

2018 a year of less plastic.

So in January a full 11 months ago I decided to go on my own less plastic journey. I swapped simple stuff first, Remembering to take my own bags and not buying a 5p one. Bought myself a keep cup so I didn't have to buy a coffee, as it is I've not used it in a shop for...

Beauty and the Beast Christmas Pantomime

We were invited * to the press release of Beauty and the Beast at Cardiff's New Theatre. This was my first panto, I must have gone to see one when I was younger but honestly I can't remember it. I took along my husband just incase Z needed to leave. I was a little...
