Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because this week has been challenging with my eldest as he has been really aggressive. Found out he has been bullied because he has long hair (his choice). But we all know how cruel kids can be about the slightest difference. So, that is one trigger and having change effects my eldest now a lot. We had visits round which takes it out on him especially with the change of routine. 

In other news, we have an appointment for the 3rd to see the psychologist who has been doing some observations so find out if my son can get an assessment for autism. I hope so because we have spent the last 3 years trying to fight for one. He is slowly starting to display characteristics, so only time will tell what will happen with that. 

We went to Legoland on Wednesday as it was a teachers training day so grabbed the opportunity to go when it is quiet, which it was and so much better for both me and my son. 

My youngest has made great improvements to his swimming and he should be moving up a level. On Friday it will be his first sports day. He will be so happy to participate as the last two years he has watched his brother from afar. 

So, yeah overall mixed bag of affairs as life normally is. 

Hope you have a good week. 

Cheers for reading X


  1. I'm so sorry your son is being bullied, kids can be so cruel sometimes. It's good to hear about your youngest swimming improvements though, and your trip to Legoland. I hope the assessment goes well, I know they can be stressful having gone through two now. I'm still waiting for an appointment for my youngest. Thanks for linking up to #wotw

  2. children can be so so nasty to others, though I am sure parental opinion and influences does not help here, who really cares if boys have long hair or girls short?
    Great on the swimming, and yes when [laces are quieter makes live easier for some children.

  3. I am so sorry to read that your son is being bullied. I know bullying can change a child's demeanor and outlook on life. Congratulations to your youngest on his successful swimming!

  4. Interesting, our boy has long hair and this has meant a lot of negatives for him, which he resents, of course, but he also sees it as a badge of pride, and will not cut his hair, if only to damn the begrudgers, which shows his resilience and strength of character. But kids can be so mean when you show any difference! #WotW

  5. I really feel for your eldest. My youngest has suffered because of bullies this past week. Kids can be so mean! They don't realise how much stress it causes not just for the victim but the rest of the family too! So what if your boy has long hair.
    Good luck with the autism assessment and the sports day x

  6. Children can be so mean. I'm sorry your eldest is going through this. I'm sure a quiet day at Legoland must have been a welcome break. Well done to your youngest. Such a boost to see them improve. #wotw

  7. I'm so sorry your son has been having a hard time. I hope you have luck getting the assessment for autism. I know having one can really provide resources to help. #MMBC

  8. So sorry to hear about your eldest. That is awful. I hope Legoland was good xx #wotw
