Got an independent expert in to see ds who confirmed he is in the right placement (after a year of him being there). Not perfect and room for improvement, but generally a good place full of kind, caring and keen staff who are open and non-defensive.
DS had a grommet operation on Monday, DD finally got her ENT appointment through for in a couple of weeks after I called and queried if they really meant April.
Popping in with honks all round. Am off to hear a band and drink a cocktail or six. Gave DS the day off school today because his cheek was scarlet when he woke up, it lasted all the way through breakfast and I thought it was slapped cheek, so as it's the last day of term I thought I'd let him stay off, despite his wails of 'but I'm fine and I'll miss Golden Time.
Literally 5 minutes later all redness had gone and I realised he'd probably been sleeping on his hand. Ah well.
Sorry for gap, ds2 is drowning at school and so our evenings are taken with resuscitation!
I drank tea with a goose this morning, which was lovely. You really must all move to the SW, then we shall charter a huge galleon and sail for America. I of course shall lead the wagon train across to the pacific, where you can get very nice sushi.
but it would mean ds2 had a much better time... and tbh, you ex is going ot have his work cutout regardless - Disney is a punishing holiday, seriously. you need a good month to recover from ti anyway, let alone with 3 children and additional needs.
in your place, I'd buy all the guide books, and plan everything with your boys - make sure they need to see and do everything. it'll virtually kill your ex
Star, I can't remember if I did post to say you weren't being unreasonable, but i meant to. Then I ran away...
We had the EYASS people round, they managed to enrage DD, piss off DS and irritate the fuck out of me, despite being terribly well-intentioned and nice. Fuckwits. DD followed a new instruction this week with no real prep - just for fun I asked her to pick up DS's dressing gown and put it on his bed. And she did she is a bit obsessed with dressing gowns though, probably because our heating sucks.
I've had DS1 off for 3 days this week, full of cold. I'll be opening the in an hour, once both the boys are in bed. He truly got out of the wrong side of bed, this morning and ended up having a meltdown when I insisted on walking on the less slippery side of the road while we were taking DS2 to school. He would have been well enough to go back, himself, today, but being DS1, that was not going to happen.
DS2's coming on in leaps and bounds, watching and learning things. He's learnt how to put the plug in the sink and fill it so his toy fish can go for a swim!
Star you're brilliant and anyone who says otherwise can go fuck themselves. No idea what your thread was about but YANBU!!!!
I'm relatively new to MN but have lurked a bit on AIBU and it seems a very odd place, beset with strange rules that change on a whim depending on who's posting. Some of the regulars just seem to get a kick out of being intentionally confrontational. It's the Internet forum equivalent of the sort of 'frenemy' psyche typified by Heathers. I don't like it and don't get the mindset. Some people forget that there are real people behind the MN names and the posts.
Anyway, have a few drinks and don't worry. We love you. HONK
I had a look at your thread, Star. Seemed to get heated for no apparent reason? FWIW, DS1 had an umbilical hernia op when DS2 was 6 months old, DS2 stayed on the ward with me in his car seat and occasional BF for 6 hours.
Ex H is taking the OW and her DS to Disney, too. I'm sure it will be hard work with DS2 even with exit passes, so I probably will swallow my bitterness and tell him.
Hi all! Polter glad you have SENCO on your side - I hope she can make CT see sense.
ZZZZZ sorry things are no better at school. How is youngest DD this week?
Star was at the reactions you got in AIBU but I didn't post as I have made myself a rule NEVER to post in AIBU.
Sign looking forward to another meet up.
Not a brilliant week here. After making some progress Ds's OCD seems to be going backward again. However he is out tonight with DH to see a Radio 4 comedian in a live show. He is a really Radio 4 comedy fan. The show is called 7 Years in the Bathroom which if you know my DS is richly ironic. Another week until half term here. I think we will all survive though I am having lots of weird right sided neuro symptoms this week.
Well, we'll be camping just as soon as the temperatures rise. It will often be fairly short notice and a weekend but happy to just post on here and if anyone lives nearby who wants to toast their marshmallows on our bbq, or camp too, then that would be very lovely.
