~ Your off to great places, today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.~ 🤗🎒🖍📚❤️
First day back and first day starting
Grade 12 for Kelsey the last year of her schooling years, Grade 4 for the twins at seperate schools and just starting Prep for miss Baypearl.
This morning we woke with such anticipation. All kids were up bright and early ready to start a new year of schooling.
The usual autism traits got in the way with fussing over new shoes and socks being to long, seams feeling not right and tags being itchy, lunches were not packed according to what was in their minds and hair just didn’t seem to fall right today like it has done so during the holidays for the last 6 wks.🙄 Brushing teeth was like the world had ended and the morning rush was back full swing like it never left.
We made it on time which is the main thing. Baypearl was shy at first but has a fabulous teacher aid who she was clinging onto for life. She washed her hands 4 times in 20 minutes and was picking at her self with anxiety. As I said my good byes I had tears under my shades for no one to see. Baypearl hugged me and off she went latched onto her aid, her new comfort zone.
Small classes and down to earth teachers is what makes this school so amazing. There’s no comparing and certainly no parents showing who is better than the other. Just plain down to earth humans who generally want to help one and other in a way I haven’t seen at all the other schools my kids have attended.
Private schools have done nothing for my asd children and big over crowded public schools never helped either they were filled with “up nosed”parents who expected their children to be perfect. All judging one and other of who had the better car and who had the branded name bags and shoes.
But I tell you now when you find that school with compassion and understanding you slot right in, you know then you have made the right decisions in your child’s life for it’s not about how perfect your child looks or how much money and possessions you own it’s about being around a community who cares, who shows generosity towards you as a person and not just another number. 💜🦋

CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hey, I’m Yen! I’m undiagnosed and looking for help! Before my symptoms appeared, I was very active. I used to be a professional dancer for Tillate magazine; I was a playmate and danced for Armin van Burren; I travelled to Indonesia and climbed mount Rinjani and I loved doing 5k runs to help raise money for breast cancer research. I was also bodybuilding 4x a week. Before taking a sick leave, I was a makeup artist for Giorgio Armani, but sadly on sick leave.
I have found myself suddenly so sick and we cannot figure it out! Within a matter of a few weeks, I went from a healthy, happy-go-lucky gal to being bed-bound. I started having crazy fatigue, but I kept on pushing and it was as if my whole body shut down. I am housebound and I’ve been mostly bed-bound for the last 5 months with piercing migraines, excruciating joint pain, nausea, vertigo, blurred/double vision, gastro pains, fever/flu symptoms, brain fog, sensitivity/sensory overload with lights and noise that causes me to collapse and faint.
My symptoms evolved. I feel pressure in my brain swelling and pushing my on my eye, nausea, along with vomiting in the car when I have to travel to doctors.
The doctors have done complete blood counts which have all come back “normal.” I have been refused to be seen by neurology due to my CFS diagnosis. The only thing the NHS can offer me is medication and mindfulness.
I set up a chronic illness page detailing my sickness journey and have received advice that it sounds like Lyme, or I could have secondary hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue. M.E CFS, or fibro. I find it all pretty confusing. 🙈 Before I venture any further, I just want to make sure I’m going in the right direction. Whatever it is I have, I will accept it and bravely battle it.
I remember getting a few bites after camping this summer. After a month I started having all of these symptoms but my Lyme Elisa came back negative. The doctors won’t even acknowledge that.
Can anyone give me any advice? You all are so strong and a great inspiration💛

After a long day of meltdowns and tantrums I have to say I can always find something good about the day no matter how hard it was.
This morning we decided to walk the dogs along the beach, this plan was easily changed by Jesse and Baypearl deciding to swim in the ocean clothes and all.
I remembered when the twins were little this is how my morning walk along the beach would always end up.
I had 3 yr old twin boys drenched in clothes with no towels and all passing by had eyes peering at a mother who honestly was just Keeping her head above water. I was struggling but I still remember to this day the joy that water brought to my twins. There were no rules no bathers no towels no hats no sunscreen 🙄 and definitely no care in the world. There was just two boys allowing all there sensory overload to be washed away by Mother Nature. And a mother who felt at ease while her boys were free of the world around them.
Today Jesse was that 3 yr old boy once more. He became so relaxed as the waves were washing over his head. He ran he jumped he surfed the waves all unplanned not one routine about it and he loved it.
Not every day goes to plan some days who cares for a plan. When the feeling is right just dive right in allow that inner child to feel free from all society all social anxiety for Mother Nature cleanses the soul. Filling our buckets up once more with love and most of all Joy. 💙🦋💧
