Reasons to be Cheerful...1,2,3, Josh, Dan and Trinity

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I'm joining in with the Mummy from the heart's R2BC blog hop this week. Each of my children have given me something to be cheerful about...

1. Joshua has worked so hard all week on his homeschool work. He has pretty much completed everything I have set for him everyday this week with minimum fuss and I don't think he has had any school work related meltdowns - which is brilliant! His handwriting has also shown amazing improvement this week. I'm not bothered what his handwriting looks like per se, but it is usually a good indicator of how well he is coping in other areas of his life. Probably sounds a bit weird - but we have tried and tested it several times when he has been receiving occupational therapy sessions vs when he has not and the difference is totally incredible.


2. Daniel, our very own brilliant Chef, has been busy practising his 'cheffing' skills this week in preparation for tomorrow - complete with bossy head chef attitude (but it is really cute at the same time). He is in the live final of a cookery contest tomorrow and I really hope I don't let him down. I am his 'helper' but I'm a complete disaster area in the kitchen.


3. After yesterday morning's scare - I just feel so thankful that Trinity was ok and the problem so quickly resolved.

So these are my reasons to be cheerful this week, what are yours?

  2. I totally get the handwriting thing - my son with aspergers is the exact same, his handwriting is completely unreadable when he's upset. The other reasons are great too x

    1. thanks for your comments Looking for Blue sky. The handwriting things is incredible really - but you kind of have to see it to believe it. Like you say, it can often be unreadable at other times. x

  4. hi, I'm glad little Trinity was well after all, I must admit that really got into me and with Harry being a bit poorly I'm on google trying to remember the 1st aid stuff I've learnt about 9 years ago. Also I got really curious about your little chef, would love to hear more. i love cooking and see kids involved in the kitchen for me is pure joy.

    1. Hi Aida. Yes it is so important just to know a few basics of first aid isn't it - CPR, choking etc. Will definitely be writing more about Daniel's cookery (he is keen to write a blog post about it too). Just feel exhausted right now - so it will have to wait for another day - but soon hopefully x

    1. thanks for your comment. It is hard doing extra with them after school isn't it - I remember when mine were at school they would come home exhausted! There are so many positives about homeschooling but I know that Daniel would be very suited to a school environment (whereas Josh is doing better academically at home at the moment) - so I constantly question myself over what is the best thing to do.

  7. Yes, I got one or two meltdowns which were completely out of character right towards the end shortly before he was taken away to live in a residential care home. But without the excessive observations and scrutiny from the local authority he worked well, enjoyed being home educated and came on in leaps and bounds. He liked to cook biscuits, pies, and rocky road amongst other things. I longed to home educate him from when I was pregnant but didn't until he was near the end of his schooling and had suffered the trauma of special school. He wasn't aspie but classic autistic spectrum which he varied along depending on who was writing the reports and their methods which were different from those I had learnt when studying speech therapy.
