bubblaboy and myself were ill first few weeks and had trouble getting out and about when ill it sets him right back

he didnt want to play ,go out see friends just wanted to play his console all the time

he has become very mummy mummy mummy very clingy wanting to sleep in my bed again doesnt want daddy doing anything from opening crisps to daily routine chores playing , food etc

in other ways his really come along his use of language is improving he can do 2 more speech sounds when helped and prompted

last few days we have gone out and about we had play date with another boy with asd and bubbla boys classmate all 3 had great time together 2 boys with ASD got on fab i think they had secret understanding of each other bless them

bubbla boy seems to have befriended his barney teddy and talks to him and makes him talk to me in funny voice

seems to understand others have feelings bit more mainly through play he had rabbit lolly and was making lolly speak to me lolly came and told me his head hurt because bubblaboy had bitten off his ears lol

so much seems to have come forward yet so much still seems to have gone back his dependency on me is huge at moment quite nice in some ways as his very loving and cuddly and i know i should make the most of it lol

he has a little party to go to tomorrow so that will be interesting to see how he gets on anyway thats us up to date so far lol lets hope he doesn't become too clingy that it will cause problems when starting school

Oh glad things are going so well Bubblagirl. Can't remember how old yours is, does he start school in Sep like mine?

My DS1 (AS) has come on leaps and bounds and so far I think our holidays have been no more chaotic than any other mum of 3's. He did poo on the picnic green behind the posh house at Marwell Wildlife Park last week thoughblush. I have been practising 70s parenting and forgetting about him and his sister while I played with the baby. But then I spotted this naked bum from across the green! A helpful fellow picnicker pointed me in the direction of the poo.

Having said that we are doing fine I am very glad that DH has 2 wks offgrin.

bubblagirl Wed 12-Aug-09 18:35:41

lol oh that is funny lovebuckets yes ds will start school sept also very scary times lol

well ds still wont poo unless in a nappy were working on that one still

im glad to hear your ds is doing well also

its funny in some ways ds has really grown up his use of words his more helpful and independent and polite

and yet in others i feel his babying again needing me all the time clinging not wanting to go out but have to say more good days than bad we do laugh alot in the days even if we havent gone out ive turned into his gaming buddy lol never new i was so good at mario lol

oh well glad to hear all is well glad dh is off for 2 weeks for you dp cant get any time off so really annoyed no holidays again this yr for us never mind im determined to take ds away with just me for few days at some point before school if i can get him on the train to travel lol

lol, we are off to Marwell tomorrow. Am I to understand that the Poo has been escorted off the premises? Or do we have to keep a look out for it? Not that it will be the only poo in Marwell - by a long way!

bubblagirl Wed 12-Aug-09 19:02:57

How am I getting on?


They are driving me NUTS.

I really need that quiet time when they are at school blush. They are so loud and constantly in my face that I find it rather overwhelming if I don't get that time.

During term time I am able to block it out before and after school and at weekends. I genuinely don't hear it. But by halfway through the summer holiday it overwhelms me and I feel like physically pushing them away when they get up into my face - nose to nose. and I feel like screaming FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHUT UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP. blush

That's probably too honest, isn't it? blush

Phoenix4725 Wed 12-Aug-09 20:21:46

must admit im looking foward to having me time hell time to sleep

ChopsTheDuck Wed 12-Aug-09 20:49:08

welll, we had a week off. two of them, including the King (ds wtih sn, his words) went to my parents, and the dts, dp and I went to Barcelona.

Now, we're back home. we had a flood. ds is in dreamland.

the fecking OT decided he could do 'double all what the other children do' so his legs have been collapsing all day.

I've been constnatly on the phone to the landlord, the insurers, her insurers, and it looks like we are gonna move oout for 6 weeks.

physically disabiled and asd type child and noisy air jet fans and no floor v physicaly disabled asd type kid and temporary accomodation - can't decide!

I'm halfway through a bottle of red!

ChopsTheDuck Wed 12-Aug-09 20:51:30

I wanna go marwell. Not with Poo though! Have enough of that at home.

You two must be semi close to me.

dd and I think ds have been there on school trips, but I haven't.

ChopsTheDuck Wed 12-Aug-09 20:52:07

sleep? what's sleep?

roll on respite tomo!

bubblagirl Wed 12-Aug-09 21:06:39

oh goodness so not everyone is having a nice relaxed time then lol sorry for all that are pulling hair out and having other troubles too

im pleased to say thanks to melatonin ds does sl;eep he wakes up potters into my room lays on make shift bed and back off to sleep probably why all is going well problems arise with illness or lack of sleep mainly

have had moments where im just for goodness sake back off and stop going on about the same bloody thing over and over but to him im smiling sweetly oh really darling thats good lol

mysonben Wed 12-Aug-09 22:43:18

OMG!!! So far the holiday break has hmm

DS is like a crazed monkey since nursery has ended.

He is defiant to a max!!! (a fairly new increase in this kind of behaviour! Hope it doesn't last...), he will not listen to a word i say, or reluctantly obey then 5 mins later starts again! angry

And DD bless her! She sis teething so she is so grumpy!

What a lovely time we are having...grin

Well, we moved just before school hols started, and the dc have not settled down at all.
6 year old hfa ds has planned how he is going to leave and reminds me of this everyday, whenever he has to do something he doesn't want to. He is sullen, has moodswings. He has not been having fun. 4 year old ds with autism, is regressing and we live in meltdown situation for the whole day almost, all he wants to do is watch Thomas all day. The other day, he got out of the house, dh found him looking at next door's car, never been so frightened. He doesn't know difference between road and pavement, and has no danger awareness at all. 2 year old nearly 3 year old has extreme phobia of all insects and although has mild asd, is so rigid, and very clingy. I am 34 weeks pregnant, and don't think he will cope with new baby.
On the plus side, my 2 year old and 4 year old have started to develop a bond, which is very sweet. 2 year old likes throwing, and 4 year old likes watching things being thrown. So they laugh together. It makes me happy, which is mad with all the throwing, lol.
Must admit I am looking forward to end of summer hols now, will have a new baby that I can hopefully spend some time with.

bubblagirl Thu 13-Aug-09 09:39:19

oh dear deeja sounds like very hard work for you congrats on the coming baby though i forgot you were expecting blush its alot to deal with a move on top of holidays maybe you need to be like a school mistress lol have big rota up and set them on strict routine

its great the 2 younger are getting a bond with one another i like to watch children laugh together so sweet ds is an observer so likes to watch other throw etc

well i hope you all can find some peace and relax and enjoy rest of hols im glad that i only have the 1 to deal with really i dont need to try and split myself into million pieces lol

but i think you all sound like your doing a great job x

bubblagirl Thu 13-Aug-09 09:40:03
