Lucky!

I had to fill in some paperwork yesterday for Owen to get an aide at school holiday program. I wasn’t sure that he really needed one (although I don’t doubt he needs it at school where he needs to focus) but they were pretty insistant on having the forms done. I looked at the huge chunk of paper and groaned….

then I started to fill it out. Does your child need a wheelchair? Can your child eat unaided? Can your child speak?…..Now Owen might be difficult to handle at times. He may be full on and flat out. But what a joy to be able to tick no to so many of the questions…how wonderful to be reminded that while he may be difficult there are plenty out there in a lot worse boats.

He is going to holiday program. I spoke to the co-ordinator who is getting him an aide for the this time and will assess his needs for next time based on this time. She was not just focused on keeping him safe she was stressing the importance of him having FUN! What a joy that the kids are looking forward to going for 3 days in the holidays (2 boys – 3 days costing me less than $30 woohoo). I too hope they will have fun!

And I plan to make the most of MY time too! (well will be working on the Friday)!
