For this week’s Things I Know I thought I would borrow an idea I have seen recently from At Home Mum and Aspie in the Family and give you the lowdown on the A to Z of me. It’s fun, feel free to do one of these yourself [...]
First off, I’m thankful that I finally got myself together to join in with this meme. Every week I get to Thursday and think “Crap, I’ve forgotten about Thankful Thursday again!” and then promise myself I will get it together for the next week and so on and so on. So I’m [...]
My two eldest kids have started the holidays with separate sleepovers with their grandparents who live a couple of hours away.
I am not sure who was more anxious about this in the beginning – the kids or us! Obviously they were a little anxious as they had not stayed away from us much before [...]
It is quite ironic that this post is about a craft project – I don’t do craft. At all. But Matilda was very excited when a note came home from school inviting all students to take part in a Junk Sculpture competition for the last day of school. Her enthusiasm was catching and I found [...]

I have written before about how problematic birthday parties can be for kids on the autism spectrum and the joy and relief I felt when we finally had a positive and relaxed birthday party experience.
After a self-imposed meme sabbatical I’m back this week linking up with Shae from Yay For Home for the things I know.
* I know my baby has been really sick with a chest infection and is still not well. She has lacked an appetite and has lost some weight [...]
Last week I wrote a post about my son’s imminent transition from a special education class to a mainstream classroom. I focused on his experiences up until this point in a variety of education settings and how we had come to the decision to make the leap to mainstream.
Today I want to talk [...]
