Tough week…good job all made it through.
On a lighter note (or maybe not)… just popped into my mind, next time a husband needs a few hours of peace and quiet.. he should go to an afternoon ballet performance…bet it is very quiet, lovely musice (soothing/sleep inducing for the unballet persons), and you could quite likely catch a few winks undistrubed (as long as you dont snore)…
Bet a wife would never think to look for a husband at the afternoon ballet…(and I am a wife, so i say this all with full sympathy for a husband’s need to find a few hours undisturbered ..grin)
I have read the above with sympathy – been there myself and know what it is like. However I would like to share my son’s success with you. He has a diagnosis of autism and whilst attending mainstream education has full 1:1 support from a dedicated TA. Today he played under 7’s Rugby at the local club and with his first try was given the ‘Man of the match’ award. He takes the trophy to school tomorrow so he can show it to them all.
A real piece of good news and worth a share.
Great post. although I do admit that I also feel a little exhausted after reading it! Sometimes we all just have to resort to screen time, such is life! Hope that this following week is a better one all round!
Very much looking forward to your next post. I have been amazed at the speed at which my 5 yr old can work his way round an ipad ( and DS ans Wii!) but it raises lots of fears and questions too, not to mention guilt.
Ps we bought our older son a Kindle Fire for Xmas because the squabbles over the ipad were unbearable. It actually worked, but his little mate is definitely eyeballing that Kindle lately … !
I thoroughly enjoyed this post. It’s amazing how as parents we manage to keep our humour in such challenging times. I hope your wife healing well and you continue to be fit and well.
