When Your 5 Year Old Child’s Teacher Tell You Off!

What a week!
I attended a group meet at Freddie’s SN school to talk about the upcoming Aimee Mann Mentoring workshops and met some fabulous parents. Bella and I got ‘told off’ by her teacher for her wearing lipstick at school. I was practically crying with laughter, made no easier by two of my friends cracking up in front of me, whilst trying to hide it. Bella is only five and already such a sassy monkey. Totally tried to defend herself and say it was lip balm 🤦🏼‍♀️. Love her. She is just a mini me. I’m fairly sure I wasn’t like that at five years old though. Parents eve for her also this week. lunch out with a friend, and a trip out with Jago and friends today. In the middle of this, it was a pretty emotional week. Majority of the time I can bounce back pretty easily through well practiced resilience techniques but this week it was just damn hard. It’s the ebb and flow. Nothing majorly new. Often when we have a big therapy session for Freddie, it’s so great to see how far he has come but it also highlights just how far we still have to go. It’s a lot for us to deal with sometimes when it brings up so many other thoughts, feelings and emotions. I’m sure so many of you can relate to this.
Anyway, to cheer myself up, I spent an hour with a friend (she has the patience of a saint) in a sport shop. Yes you read that right and I am now the, sort of proud but nervous, owner of a pair of running trainers. Literally anyone who knows me personally will be in total disbelief. I’m still to get them out of the box but intentions are good.
All the gear and no idea.
