What a MORNING!
HOLY BLOODY CANNOLI BATMAN...
James had a terrible night, up screaming throughout the night ( thank you to Daddy who slept with him and didn't get any sleep as he attended to James). As a result of a restless horrible night James woke super early an screamed to go to the 'corner' (the lounge, its his safe spot)..... he fell asleep again!
I tried desperately to keep Scarlett quiet in the bedroom from 6.30am to allow James time to rest as he had sensory therapy this morning.
He woke at 8am and between 8am and 8.30am (the time we had to leave for therapy), James was screaming, CONTROLLING and uncomfortable....I literally threw what we needed in a bag, threw my clothes on from yesterday that were on the floor and slapped an orange line on my face ( I say this as literally thats what happens when I rush putting make up on)... out the door right on time at 8.30am.
The whole way to OT I was thinking, HOLY crap this is going to be a BAD session.
To my surprise James had one of the BEST sessions he has had!!!
His therapist knew he wasn't doing well, she just gets him and knows when she can push and when she can't, for that I am grateful!
After OT, James and I headed to the supermarket for the groceries... what a great trip there too!
James has had a fantastic morning... OT, shopping, made cupcakes and he ATE a whole weetbix and apple puree! HE ATE again! Third day in a row!
James is in a great space today but what the hell is going on with Scarlett....
GEE WIZZ, terrible 2 year old! I have never experienced this. An autistic 2 year old is so much different so this is all new to me. I actually don't know whats harder, 2 year old with ASD or a neurotypical 2 year old.... lucky I have a little champagne in my fridge for this evening. I think I am going to need it!
As hard as it has been this morning I am incredibly grateful!
Yesterday Juliana Carver lost her battle with cancer.
Juliana was a inspirational, young woman who I have been following on social media.
Her father has been documenting her journey on social media, it's RAW and its REAL.
Last night I clicked onto Facebook and went straight to her page to check in with her as she has been really unwell, it's generally the first thing I click over to. I was devastated to find a video of her father telling the world his beautiful daughter had just died.....
It's incredibly sad. I have not stopped thinking of her family since I saw the news.
May Juliana rest easy with the angels.
Hug your children a little tighter,
