6. #Lawnmowingtherapy and being tired!

It’s really hard when trying to get the kiddo undressed and into the pool when he doesn’t want to. I explain to him that this is the set time todo the swimming class. Kiddo does not want to take his clothes off! He doesn’t want to follow time schedules as it doesn’t fit”, the boy needs time to get used to the idea of getting changed, change and makes a heck of a loud noise in doing so. Kind of like starting up a pull string lawn mower, he has to do it a few times to get the mojo started. Alla get motivated to do something. Heavens to betsy! Hello world – we had allot of fun in the pool, Mum playing sharks with the kids in the water. Great for sensory! Please feel free to leave constructive useful ideas as its a place to share

25. Swimming week 2013

Another situation: No. 1 Kiddo  was at the pool as a part of school swimming week. He wanted me to be there, he fell over and stubbed his toe. It was a horrible mess and flies were attracted to the moisture in the wound. Kiddo  lost it! He was totally freaked out by it! He screamed and shouted. It was almost like those flys suddenly became enormous garagantuan monsters. He was terrified of them. His eyes huge with fear! He wanted me to do something and I went to help him cover the wound or wash it. He just screamed.Right in my ear and so much that if I couldn’t do this or that I would just take him home. I swept him up in my arms, dumped him in the pram aside his baby brother as Kiddo so upset he wanted to be carried. I drove them both home in the car, me so very angry because I was totally confused as to why my son was not 1. doing what the other kids did. 2. my son would not let me look after him. I needed to look after him as if I didn’t then who would.
