Jane has something in her shoe. We sit her down on along and take her shoe off. David sits down and starts to take of his shoe too. Ahhh.. routines are so quickly started in our household! #autismfamily
He's like 'phew, made it to the end of the week'. Well actually David's pre-verbal, but that's what I was thinking!
OK, don't know if anyone else noticed but it's got cold this week. Visits to the playground need coats now and really only happen at the weekends. Truth is the kids are too tired after school, clubs, homework or it's already dark before we get home during the week. Anthony said it's less than seven weeks to Christmas already! Can't believe it. They were setting the Christmas lights in the high street this week 😱.
Another child maybe wandering around the countryside on @bbcone at 9pm tonight. He won't be carrying a rainbow ribbon like our Jane here, but like her brothers he has a spectrum all of his own. What will we see from series two of #TheAWord I wonder? #ontheblogtoday
My son David is a beautiful, wonderful, loving and cheeky child. But sometimes his reaction to our world not built with him in mind can be challenging. My actions can be misinterpreted and my love could appear invisible to those who don't understand us. #Ontheblog I've written to a mother whose actions may have been judged online. I just wanted to let her know - I get it. Xxx
David connects with everything in his own way. It's hard though to know sometimes if he's connecting with anything. He often follows his own ideas and is confused when he can't. He watches programme after programme on an iPad. Lately he's been watching the new @cbeebieshq show Pablo, featuring autistic characters and an autistic cast. What does it mean to him I wonder, still #ontheblognow
It makes a nice change when the kids can actually enjoy doing something together. Yes Anthony's not that into different fruit but he and Jane have these #grufallo terrible tusks fruit kebabs a good go. They scoffed the lot so must have been good 😊 See how to make them #ontheblogtoday
