To sleep or not to sleep

I am sitting here at nearly midnight with a huge to do list that I wanted to complete this evening, yet I have achieved only maybe half of, and now I am sitting taking a break and writing this post. I’m not me unless…

Here we go again!

Summer has been and gone, and we are heading full steam ahead into the Festive season.  Life has not stopped and has been pretty crazy and full on and this blogging malarkey has failed me so far!  But onwards and upwards and let’s just…

Clean eating sucks …..

well today it really does anyway. But we are not giving up. This is the result of natural yoghurt and fruit, both of which she eats. And yes she has rubbed it all up her arms like sun cream! Arrrrrgh

Caught in the act …..

This child drives me insane but makes me smile so much my heart could burst. He is so damn naughty and cheeky, but his determination will make him go far, when hopefully channeled in the right direction. So for his ADHD / Sensory Processing…

Let the clean eating commence

I have for a while now planned on getting Grayson eating clean, and also if possible the rest of us too.  I want him to be sugar free, additive free, preservative free, basically crap free.  I’m hopeful that this might help with his adhd,…

First OT session ………

So we did it, we survived Grayson’s first OT session!  It was pretty uneventful.  Gray and I drove into town, parked around the Outer Circle of Regents Park and walked, yes walked to the clinic.  Grayson was reasonably cooperative and amused himself looking at…

Assessment Day

The day has arrived, Grayson was assessed today for Sensory Processing Disorder.  Finally I feel like I am moving forward in this journey, perhaps to a destination now and not just around and around in circles being told I am either making it up,…

Blood Tests

So today Grayson had to go for more blood tests following our consultant visit a couple of weeks ago.  I never highlight the fact we are going for tests, just that we are going to the hospital where the big play room is.  He…

My special little man

So Grayson might have Dyspraxia, and possibly ADHD. These are the initial thoughts of my sister who is qualified as a SENCO in school.  Preschool have already confirmed they have concerns, well at least they confirmed this when I raised my concerns.  Having that…
