Well here goes nothing!
So I have been thinking so hard about what I was going to write on my first blog.....
But I decided to just bite the bullet and start writing.
Firstly, I would like to thank all the people that have embraced this idea so positively! It makes me realize that I am doing the right thing and it gives me the confidence I need to share our journey to help support and inspire others either on a similar path or to bring awareness to not only ASD but all special needs. SO THANK YOU!
So I am actually having a rare mummy quiet moment right now!
James has gone off with his daddy for some errands and Scar baby is sleeping soundly in bed.
Normally I would be running around organizing washing or 'resetting' everything before our beautiful tornado (James) walks back in the house.
I really have to learn to take some moments like this for myself, it only makes me a better mummy to those two little blessings.
It appears to be the day of mummy today. This morning I went off for my mummy time in the float tank. One whole hour to myself, completely sensory deprived! And its bloody awesome! This morning when I laid in the tank I thought to myself 'I think this is what its like to be in the womb'.... ! Anyway floating has really chilled me out and not to mention taken away my Sleep Paralysis! I know its time to get back in the tank when my mind starts waking up before my body again and I see that scary ass black spirit standing over my bed!YEP... I really am a bit of a looney tune, but hey so are you, you just keep it to yourself!
That is the point right? Why do we label these kids? ASD ? Autism? Autistic Disorder? Aspergers? etc etc.... we all have quirks, we all like and dislike things, we all learn differently. Why is the world so ashamed of these beautiful minds?!
Well I am not ashamed of the beautiful little mind that calls me Mum, I am so damn proud!!! And I am here to shout that from the roof tops! Did you know that James has known all his colours from 12 months old (not exaggerating), knows the days of the week, months of the year, can count to 100 and recognize numbers, knows the alphabet..... oh and so much more! He has the most amazing photographic memory too!
Any way! Thanks a bunch for reading and I cant wait to ENTERTAIN you with more of my beautiful, crazy life!
Much love, Sharna xx
