I need to return to and move on with our story. Try and make a non-linear story, linear.
But to do that I need to 'park' a few things.
Park the fact that last night dyspraxia kept us all awake until the wee small hours. Park the fact that due to the hyper sensitive sensory processing issues, a double dose of antisthetic was needed at the dentist. Park the fact that therefore the tooth was numb for hours afterwards, which meant his whole face felt funny, which meant his whole body felt funny, which meant he didn't sleep. Sorry, did I mention that already? Sorry it's just we didn't sleep you see!
Because when your tooth feels funny, then the duvet feels funny too! And that means you move about and maybe crash a bit. And then you kept your brother awake. So in the morning there are at least four really grumpy people trying to get ready!
I need to park the fact that all the jumpers this morning were 'too small'.( Thank you sensory processing disorder working in partnership with extreme tiredness!) Park the fact that our goodbyes weren't very cheery and nobody handled it all that well, least of all Moglet Mummy!
I need to park the fact that when I rang the Learning Support Teacher to apologise in advance for all the things Moglet #2 was going to forget today, she was very sympathetic. Which was nice. But I need to park the fact that I made that call in the school car park and her sympathy made me a blubbering wreck for all to see. Sorry to the Dad I scared when he waved his usual cheery hello!
I need to park the fact that I have just returned from an impromptu and unscheduled meeting with Learning Support. Which was really helpful and has produced a plan. Watch out Ed Psych we are coming to get you - again! And Occupational Therapist, don't you think we have forgotten you!
But this wasn't the day I had planned.
So before I move on with our story I have just realised there is a lot of parking to do!
Try again tomorrow!
