The End Is In Sight

I’ve felt like I’ve been completely losing the plot the last few days. But hopefully the end is in sight. Jack has been pretty good. Apart from the odd moment where Lily crying has made him angry. He’s been calm and just doing his own thing. Building Lego or playing on his computer mostly.

Lily on the other hand has been really hard work. It seems like she needs my attention 24/7 at the moment. To be truthfully honest I’ve not been up to it. I’ve tried my best but I’ve been getting frustrated. I can’t seem to get a chance to do anything that needs doing. Then with Lily being so demanding. Jack gets left on his own too much.

Finally a bit of time outside

He’s ok on his own, but I know he’s like more time with me as well. I took Lily in the garden to play football this afternoon. It finally wasn’t raining, and I figured she needed a run around. It certainly helped. She enjoyed the time outside, and when she came in she was much calmer than before.

I’ve just not had the energy for this week. With it being so difficult to get Jack to join in something with Lily. I feel like I’m swimming against the tide just making sure both are entertained. Never mind trying to fit in housework or anything else.

The end is in sight

There’s only one more day until Lily should be back at school. She wants to see her friends. So fingers crossed we can at least get her into school. Whilst we try and sort out what’s going to happen in the future. Jack doesn’t go back until Tuesday. But Jack on his own is normally quite chilled out. He might want to go for a walk. Then as long as he’s got snacks and we watch what he wants on the tv. He will be hapPy

So the end is in sight and it’s nearly time to go back to normality. I need it just as much as the kids that’s for sure.

My name is Adam. I live with my partner Natalie, and our 2 children Jack and Lily. Both children are autistic, it is now my mission to show what life around autism is like. Spread the awareness and gain the acceptance that autistic people deserve.

    I hope the routine brings back some normalcy for you all! Must be difficult sometimes, but it sounds like you are doing a great job!

      Thanks. That’s what I’m hoping for.
