Sorry, been so ill and fed up (now have chest infection- lovely) haven't been focusing on the positive! One positive thing about the Xmas break was that DH fell in love with DD again. He's been feeling very distant from her (as I think i've said on other posts) but he totally bonded with her again and spent much of the break playing 'please tickle me' games with DD enraptured. And I overheard him talking to his auntie about her and he explained her difficulties so well and was so positive about her small but significant achievements. This is a real breakthrough for our family
Ah, thanks for lovely messages. I think it has taken him longer to re-adjust to it all. Mainly, I think, because he doesn't spend much time with her as up working in London long days etc. So then he feels distant and doesn't know how to interact with her and the months go by and he feels more distant... She was always such a daddy's girl before her autism became more apparent. It is so lovely to see them reunited! Hurrah!
Thats great news .
I'm so happy for you and your dh. Tbh where we're concerned its my dh who seems to be coping/accepting a lot better than me. I'm gradually getting there, but I still dont feel that I've quite bonded in the way that I did with ds1
Hope you'll feel better soon. Being under the weather makes everything so much harder to cope with doesn't it?
