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

Last night was either one long evening or one very early morning, it all seemed to merge. No sooner had D settled than she was back, upset. It didn’t seem to make a difference which room she was in, the anxieties were there.

She wasn’t able to say what was causing them in the wee small hours; it could have been our daft cat surprising her earlier, making her want to leave home, to not exist; it could have been the thought of returning to school, it could have been anything.

Whatever it was, the melatonin didn’t work, it doesn’t tend to if she’s over-anxious and the night went on and on.

Unfortunately it wasn’t just me she kept awake, T was too, as well as Hubbie. A houseful of tired inhabitants.

We’ve all had a day at home. T and D have got on surprisingly well, I think they were both too tired NOT to get on.

We ventured out to the playground, in between the would-be after-nursery and after-school visitors. It was nice and quiet, perfect for T and D to run around and enjoy themselves without stares/looks/comments. Too often we run into people like this mother I blogged about here, not understanding and not wanting to understand either.

T and D enjoyed themselves and we left when others started to arrive, it’s not being rude, it’s risk-assessing (almost) and preventative measures. Roll on our trip to Taplow (tvapSN) this weekend!

I linked in with oliversmadhouse for Magic Moments, here was my post, a moment when my life changed for ever!

I hope D has a more restful night (please) and that everyone’s had a good day. Thanks for all the answers to which are your child’s favourite toys/gadgets, all for something I’ve been asked to write. Will share when I’ve finished it.

Comments/RTs/shares as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx 😘
