Reasons to be Cheerful - A dramatic week!

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart


Once again I am joining in with Mummy from the Heart's R2BC blog hop. Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week...

When I say a dramatic week, I don't mean that anything particularly dramatic has happened, but rather the boys both had their drama shows this week...

1. On Sunday, Joshua had his Drama performance and managed to hold it together for both the rehearsal and the show. He goes to a fantastic drama club that is specifically for kids with social communication difficulties so they have been understanding of Josh when he has had the occassional wobble in recent weeks when there were changes going on with new children starting. His group's performance was snow white and the seven moshlings and with him being a huge Moshi monsters fan, it was the perfect idea for a show for him to be involved in. The other groups also did an amazing job of "Cinda-Fella" and "Peter Pan and the Beanstalk" which incorporated ideas from all the kids that attend the drama club.

2. Today was Daniel's drama show. Daniel started at a local drama school in September for weekly sessions and although he has always been a sociable, outgoing kind of kid, his confidence has just been sky high since doing these drama sessions. It is interesting for us to see the difference between the two different drama clubs with Daniel's being very loud and lively and knowing that someone like Josh just wouldn't cope for 2 seconds in that environment. Which makes us so glad that it is a great club for Daniel to be involved in and we are so grateful that Josh has his own alternative to attend. It really does prove that each child is different and each child's needs are unique.

3. Daddy is off work now until after boxing day - so it will be nice to have a relaxing few days with hopefully not too many meltdowns from Josh as the changes that happen to routine during the Christmas period can sometimes make things really hard for him. We also made the most of having Daddy around today and finally got around to having my contact lens check which was about a year and a half overdue and managed to get some food shopping done so hopefully will only need little top-ups of milk and bread until after Christmas.

So what are your reasons to be cheerful this week....

    1. thanks Becky. Yep - it is so great that they both love drama so much as we really hadn't expected either of them to take to it so well. It is usually a logistical nightmare to get them each to their drama on time as they overlap / clash and are in totally different locations - but somehow we have been managing it with Daddy rushing home to take Josh and Granny helping out occasionally too when Daddy can't get home from work in time. xxx
