One of those days

1 Apr

It’s partly my fault. I didn’t take the time to make a visual chart for M before I went to bed last night and now we are all paying the price. She has been pinging off the walls since about 10 o’clock.

Unfortunately, this has coincided with a “clumsy day”, something that happens fairly frequently. Sometimes M falls over as she gets out of bed in the morning and the day takes its tone from that first stumble. All her sensory issues are heightened too, which makes for an unhappy wee girl.

Naturally, as it’s a bank holiday during school holidays, all seven of us are at home, so it’s been as busy as a normal weekend. It personally doesn’t help me that hubby insists on having Radio 4 on the whole time and M truly hates the radio, but whereas I automatically turn it off when I can see she is in a hyper-sensitive state, he doesn’t. 

I have so much housework to do I can barely think what to do first, but apart from sticking a load in the washing machine I think I’m going to have to leave the house in the awful state it’s currently in and tackle M’s happiness levels as a priority. She has been getting slightly better at playing with some of her toys in the past week or so, but today she cannot cope with even the idea of choosing one, so I will intervene and hopefully we can avoid a meltdown.

At least it is uncharacteristically sunny out, even if it is only 6 deg C, so maybe we can visit the play park so she can run off some energy. I just want to find the smile that you can see in this photo. Imagess

    Yes, I can see where you would go nearly crazy trying to get that smile back and a whole houseful on a clumsy day must be hell. If I had half your patience, I would be petitioning Rome for saintood!

      You’re very kind Ailsa, it’s just a normal day here at Chaos Towers though 🙂

      After a quick beach trip she is a MUCH happier little girl, plenty of smiles now 🙂
