Our Next Oscar Winner is...

Got to say I never thought this day would come and I was very proud of Tom (and Harry of course)

We never usually go to the boys assembly because it normally throws them off track. Last time I went Harry got a tad excited and threw all the teachers notes out of her hands because he had spotted me at the back of the hall, plus there was the big non event of them refusing to take part in the Christmas play.
Had to persuade Malc to go, one because they never do anything and two, he's frightened he'll fall through those piddly chairs they provide us to sit on.

Anyhow we were informed Tom had a big role in the assembly. He was a bully in a gang and had to push a girl over....!!! Both the boys held up their pictures when they were supposed to. Goldilocks and the bear were both superb and to my reckoning should be hung in the Tate gallery, so much was the detail that went into it. Then came Tom's big moment. He wheeled himself on cue along with the gang and again with precision timing pushed the girl over. What a fantastic little actor he is...(I know most of you will say he always has been...!!!) Even better than that was the fact he reversed himself into his space without running any one over.
Harry was a star in himself due to the fact he didn't leave his 1:1's lap, though you could still hear him muttering 'mummy and daddy here' and clapping constantly.
Tom even joined in with the singing of 'Neighbours' (don't ask) and wheeled himself to the very front when they did the bow.

I think this is a start of a very promising career personally and no I'm not a pushy mum who will see the pound signs in front of her eyes.

So where is that application form for stage school.....

Into the new year

Well here we are into the new year...well March to be exactly and I had promised to update on a regular basis....!!!

Both the boys managed the christmas play...well they sat there and refused to do anything. Nothing new there really. Had a really good christmas with dad being home. Hannah was spoilt yet again and it was the first year the boys interacted in the whole thing and seemed to enjoy it for what it was. Due to the snow, we were house bound for a couple of weeks on and off.

Tom had an assessment for another wheelchair as he is finally growing. Hopefully this will be okay for him and we don't have to go down the private route again. He's also had to have his swash brace fixed. The thing that's supposed to restrict his movement broke as he was bumshuffling too much. He was also assessed for a mobile hoist and shower chair. We got the mobile hoist fairly quickly, shower chair we have to wait for a bit longer, so he has to make do with sliding all over the shower bed when soapy...!!! Mind you, it does keep us fit trying to catch him on there, he's a slippery little Apart from that he's doing okay. Still having to fight the girls off him at school...literally. They are at his beck and call and being a typical bloke, enjoying it.

Harry, well what can we say about this little man...!! Recovered from his tonsils and adenoids well. He was very quiet for a long time which was great. Unfortunately his voice did come back and we have since been subject to his beautiful voice which reaches such high decibels. He's been his normal self, loud, accident prone, tapped...the list continues. CAMHS still find him facinating, though after asking him to be referred, they are coming out with more labels for him. They've already said they're pretty certain he's got OCD and still looking into his autistic traits. Saw the orthopeadic consultant who is still worried about his hips and his hypermobility but agreed there wasn't a fat lot he could do at the moment. So we've just left it like that for the time being. He managed to split his chin open again this week, so has been an unhappy chappy this week.

Hannah is okay. Doing well at school. Actually had a decent school report and the teachers say she's nice and quiet. Obviously got the wrong girl there..!!!

Well think that's about it for now. Quite boring really. Loads to do round the house, so if anyone is bored and want's some DIY to do, give us a shout. I'm sure we can accomodate you...!!!
