Less judgement, more compassion!

Had enough of the working mum guilt trip! Had enough of the scrutiny about how much time do we spend with our child questions? Like do we even spend time at the weekends or school holidays with our child? Of course we do, and we would spend even more time if we could, but there… Continue reading Less judgement, more compassion!

Our last CDC appointment

It has taken me some time to sum up my thoughts about my son’s last child development clinic appointment, which occurred about a week ago. The last time we saw the consultant was back in March where he was doing a wait and see approach, wanted to give him time to settle into his new… Continue reading Our last CDC appointment

Summer holidays so far (2018)

It didn’t start well, my son had a meltdown on his last day at school and we were called by the school to take him home in the afternoon. I gave in and said to my mum to collect him, and stop the school from losing face and embarrassment at the end of the school… Continue reading Summer holidays so far (2018)

Relief or Cry?

The family dramas of recent months have been decreasing, in terms of managing my son’s behaviour and my own emotions towards them, but still more issues than I would like. I still do not see it as the ‘crisis’ my son’s previous school was alluding to, although some may disagree, but he has handled things… Continue reading Relief or Cry?

Settling In?

4 weeks have passed by since the move, including Christmas and New Year’s festivities, although we didn’t do much for the latter, apart from tidy up the old place the best that we can, which apparently was not appreciated that it was our best effort. Almost got into a dispute about that, but after highlighting… Continue reading Settling In?

2017 so far

It has been over a year now since my OH got made redundant, and I am proud that he was able to secure another job so quickly and has recently got a temporary promotion. One dark cloud has been lifted, but 2017 has been a so so year for us, with more ups and downs… Continue reading 2017 so far

The Assessment

News hot off the press from the initial assessment by the paediatrician, my son does not have ASD and it is very unlikely he has it! Again, you think we would be celebrating by now, but no, we have not been discharged as yet as his behaviour he is apparently presenting at school is still… Continue reading The Assessment
