For anyone who doesn’t know my other love (after my children) is Square Peg Clothing which I stared with my family after being basically annoyed with T-shirts declaring children with Autism to be “Autistic not Naughty.” etc. My daughter is definitely both!!
Well now we have 11 designs including a whole range of disabilities and are always looking for more. You can purchase them here. We have also set up the Square Peg Foundation as we are a not for profit organisation. Our aim is to open the Square Peg Sensory Bus and tour primarily Birmingham but also further afield. If you would like to show your support you can follow our Facebook page, we are just starting to fund raise and are looking for prizes for our Christmas raffle so if you sell/make/have something we could use please get in contact!
Yesterday Miss B took my hand, led me to her bedroom tv and said “Nooola” which was her attempt at asking for Mulan.
This is big! She can ask for Lion King or Toy Story when she has seen the title on the screen or if prompted but this was totally uninitiated and very positive.
It’s really lovely to watch my little man developing and learning new skills. Scooters and baby bikes (trikes at nursery) are the new in thing! The helmet is just pretty cool!
Not much imaginary play goes on with my 4 and 2 year old so any time I notice a moment it’s really special and exciting!
It seemed this cloud baby needed to get somewhere faster than a sky horse!
Love a bit of positivity, hoping for an equally upbeat week 2!
This week: new house, new routine, big sister going off to school has created a little monster. Terrible two’s are an understatement and the fact that since we moved 5am has become the new 7am compounded with all the changes equals one tired, angry boy…. Or this!
So this week we moved house but that was nothing on comparison to the little lady starting school. She’s taken to her special school really well and I am so relieved and excited for her and her new adventure!
This is the little man doing what he does best…eating!
Although his eating habits are frustrating. and eggs are new foods which he loves (nowhere as much as jam or cake I must add.) However, try to get fruit or vegetables in this boy and you’d think it was poison! -At nursery he eats everything put in front of him, melon, apple, orange, broccoli you name it he’s probably eaten it!
Copying his sister? Playing me for a fool? Who knows, at least he eats it somewhere.
It’s been a tough few days here, the bad parts of Autism have been kicking our butts or slapping me round the face more accurately. Little miss has finished nursery now and has 28 days before she starts school.
Today Little Man went to nursery alone for the first time. He’s really growing up and coming on in leaps and bounds speech-wise.
We take pudding very seriously here!
