Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

Sunday 24th June

Thanks for all your RTs of my “it’s a matter of taste…” blog. I wasn’t going to name names but I think the majority of you who RTd know who these “comedians” are, taking cheap digs at those who can’t answer back.

On with our day:
Haircuts time for T and D. T’s was with the clippers – bish bash bosh, job done – he stood very still and it was over within a few minutes. D’s was try-and-keep-her-head-still-by-watching-the-TV, just literally a couple of inches trim but the wriggling and the head turning and the bending make for a much longer job. Eventually done!

She’s enjoyed (yep, you guessed it) the “manah manah” song again, countless times and I remembered we had an old “Stephanie” from “Lazytown” wig in the dress-up box so she’s been wearing that, singing along to the “do-do-do-do-doo” of the pink cow/monster muppet’s part.


Not too many squabbles between her and T today, when she hasn’t been monopolising my phone she’s been playing with her playmobil figures, she likes to change the hair on them and carry them around. In nursery, before she was diagnosed, they noted that she liked to carry the “little people” around for security.

I was preparing D for back-to-school tomorrow and (hopefully) sports day on Wednesday, I was asking her who her best friend was in class (she’s in a class of 8, with 4 staff) and her answer was “the adults”, which is sad but I guess predictable.

Butterfly watch – day 24 🐛🌸🐛:
Oh *yawn yawn* still tiny little bat-like cocoons. Hopefully there will be some butterfly emergence by the end of the week.

A good day – little incidences aside – hope everyone has had a good day too. Comments/RTs as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx 😘

  1. Wouldn’t worry about her friends being the adults, I was the same at her age but later on made friends from my peer group. (I’m autistic too.)

    It was good in a way as friends I sought from peer group were people with more mature outlook who made better, less fickle and more trustworthy friends in the long run.
