feeling quite proud of myself

which is nice

my sons birthday today, and as some of you may know he is severely autistic so something simple like celebrating a birthday can become quite a stressful experience as his adoring mum i obviously would love to give him the sort of birthdays i give his sisters- my youngest had magician and fancy dress hundreds of tiny children all having time of their lives magician placed them inside a real bubble it was brilliant to see their faces as he placed the magic circle around them and they were inside a huge shiny bubble ^_^ my second daughter is having a disco my oldest likes to go to cinema watching horror movies with me so as you can see the girls all have fun on their birthdays

but its different with my son- he gets upset with strangers, different places, noises, loud noises, anyone looking at him, touch sensitive he can’t handle anything touching his skin we have a very small amount of clothes of only one or two types of material, he suffers sensitive hearing way beyond the normal range and cannot enter some shops that have fans blowing or heating systems because of the noise anyway the list goes on and so as you can imagine i have a great deal of difficulty finding any way of helping him enjoy a day which until recently he couldn’t understand the concept of, he has a difficult time with most concepts but one that really is difficult is time, you cannot ask him if he say watched a programme last week he doesn’t understand what last week is until recently he didn’t understand christmas and of course there is also physical problems my son has, so last night he is poorly he constantly has bowel and bladder problems last night was a bad night with showers and throwing out of clothing so i was at first only hoping for him to be well enough to enjoy the day, luckily he was, i could find nothing in the way of activities for him he has poor mobility so all forms of exercise based games are out and he has a fear of water won’t enter it so won’t go swimming etc, we had the shower installed as he would not go in the bath, also has a deep fear of grass so picnics etc are out. he can’t go to cinema or theater of any kind the dark the noise the people etc

so in the end i decided to give him money a small fortune and we went shopping together luckily i found a small shop always quiet small never anyone else in there and it sells his obsession sonic the hedgehog took him 15 minutes to spend all his money he was happy therefore i was happy and we came home and this is the best bit he attends a special school for disabled kids i had recently seen and chatted to one of the mums whose son is the nearest idea of a friend to my son, they are both autistic so its hard work but they do communicate and god love her she invited my son to play for a while; just an hour but that’s all my son can handle, but he loved it and i cannot thank her enough because it made the day, so i sit here now happy and proud because my son had a lovely day and went to bed happy he even told me i was best mum in world -course that was me crying but they are happy tears ^_^ and he was eleven by the way ^_^

also just a quick note all my dolls sold on ebay woot! just finished my latest one and super proud of how it turned out you can see it here  and just finished a costume and talked to a book store in my local town who asked to take a small run of my books to see how it goes i was so nervous talking to them i just felt like running away, but i didn’t, and was so thrilled one of the staff asked to buy one for her own straight away think i was bright red and stammering the whole time ^_^

so i go to sleep happy proud exhausted you can’t ask for better than that ^_^

love to all

xx

    1. hi, i apologise for my taking so long to reply i have been poorly and i don’t blog when i am not happy its not much fun for others to read i feel grotty ^_^ but thank you for your lovely comment and it is completely true i do feel life is what you make of it i am not one for making lemonade when life throws lemons at me but i will paint a silly face on those lemons and them throw back ^_^ have a super day x

  4. What a heart rending story, but so glad it turned out so well. I pray your son has much happiness. He is blessed to have a mum as dedicated and sensitive as you. You are blessed to have a son who can show you a whole new way of understanding and being.
    Good luck with your various enterprises. and thank you for sharing such an intimate day in your lives. It is an inspiration to those of us with different challenges that seem perhaps a little more manageable now.

    1. hi rod ^_^ feel like becoming quite close to you now its nice to hear from someone regularly it helps with my very rubbish memory and with communication also as we get to know each other thank you for your lovely comments i do adore all my offspring and i am lucky because they know i adore them i find it sad when people love each other but don’t let them know we have had a wonderful relaxed weekend and i hope you have too i am super lucky in that my kids understand when i am poorly and don’t make too many demands i always ry and make up for it when i am better with fun stuff andi call everyone sitting and reading togther or listening to me reading to them as much fun as going out to the cinema etc i guess its all how you look at it really i don’t want to sound like mary poppins here i do feel a asong or two coming on but life really is about seeing everything in the best light or something along the lines of a spoonful of sugar ^_^ hoping you are blessed with a lovely day and much happiness thank you for being my online friend xx

  5. – which is VERY nice 🙂

    You are a wonderful adoring mum – just wonderful. The variety of your kids’ parties is marvellous, and I love how you cater for their individuality (Daniel would be in on the horror movies).

    That “exhausted happy” mum is the best sleep. Congrats on your dolls. You’ve found your niche – you’ve found it! That is magnificent 🙂

    1. so sorry its took this long to get back to you my lovely i have been poorly but as always i bounce back (the doctors battle between giving me multiple sclerosis or ehlers danloss syndrome in the meantime i try and get on with stuff ) and thank you and hugs for the lovely comment about my dolls they mean a lot to me artistically much as i love writing i am definitely a person who has to have busy hands i am happiest when creating something pretty ^_^ the school run is distracting my attention right now (all my kids are at different schools so mornings are very flustered ^_^) have a super day hugs xx

  6. I’m a bit behind the eight all here…so happy the birthday was a great success. You are so good at thinking outside the box. Congrats on the e-bay sell out too!! xoxo
