I am writing this from my phone as my computer decided to shit itself. I have a love/hate relationship with this computer. Every time it gets shut down it takes 500 hours to load back up. GRRRR
So we decided to unschool James today. He was due to go to pre school today. We made the decision to not send him based on the extreme sensory overload and anxiety he experienced after going to preschool on Monday. I don't know if it was all too much after such a long break or something happened, who knows. All I know is James mental state is much more important than pre school at this stage.
So today we decided to go and renew our membership at the Early Start Discovery Centre.
Was fantastic. We stayed for two hours today, anymore than that and we would be starting to head into overload stage. They have changed it since we went last. James and Scarlett had a ball. Their most favourite part was the Market Place. They have a cafe & shopping centre, it's like real life but mini size. Absolutely awesome, teaching both my children so many skills through play.
Does anyone one else struggle to stay on top of house work?
I honestly feel likeI clean up and 5 seconds later it's all pulled apart again. I have black shiny furniture, finger print friendly... NOT. I have started following all these interior accounts on Instagram as we are about to start an extension. I get a little jelly at all the gorgeous furniture, beautiful homewares and no clutter. Please tell me I am not the only one with a house that is less than desirable.
When james is in seeking mode he pulls everything out. I don't have endless amounts of energy and half the time I can't keep up with him.
I have been researching a tone lately about ASD and other related diagnosis in regards to little people.
I am looking for some more books to read... Anyone got any suggestions. At the moment I have a particular interest in ADHD and hyperactivity. James doesn't have either of those in his list of labels but I see so many children with ADHD not being given opportunities or equality like other children.
I wanna learn more. How do they learn? What makes them happy, etc etc.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
A lot of people have been asking me for resources too so I am thinking of putting a page up of books and articles that I have read and find helpful.
Have a great day,
