Sometimes I have a laugh about the search terms that bring readers to this blog.
A lot of them feature teeth brushing problems, which is normal as Aspies hate the taste of toothpaste and feel of the toothbrush in their mouth.
Obsessions with paper is another one which is normal, as is sleep – or lack of sleep. There are a lot of sleep deprived parents who keep the caffeine business going.
One of the more interesting search this week was ‘little girl boy brushing teeth girl puts toothpaste and sprinkles on boy’s head’…..
Hmm not sure what was going on there – were they sprinkles that you put on bread? And did the little girl think the boy was a snack?
Another one from today was ‘when he gets angry he throws out all the wine!’ What the…?
Not sure why anyone who searches for wine would land on my blog! 😉
And why would anyone throw out good wine, regardless of whether they were angry or not!
That’s just kooky talk!
The boy gets anxious.
He gets so anxious that he makes himself sick.
He doesn’t want to go to school because he finds it hard and he has to work hard and use the brain of his that does actually work very well, he just thinks it doesn’t.
So he hides under the bed.
And says that I should just call him the boy who cried wolf because apparently I never believe that he is really sick. Except when he was sick for three days a couple of weeks ago I wouldn’t let him go to school, but please would I forget about that.
We are working together with his teacher to make him more resilient to school, and to get him to take less mental health days but it is hard. He really really hates school.
But loves his friends there!
He was very indignant last week when his sister had a day off school because she wasn’t well. It was the first day she had had off all year but he still got his nose out of joint about it.
It does my head in!
Today was hard to get him moving and out the door. I hadn’t slept at all with too much going on in my head, and the girl has been awake since 3am. There wasn’t enough coffee in the world to wake me up this morning.
Fingers crossed for a good night’s sleep and easy morning….
