Howdo…. It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
That’s entirely my fault, obviously 🙈
I’ll be honest with you – when we first launched this blog and our social media pages, I had a definitive plan and map. I knew what I wanted, where we were headed and how we were gonna get there.
But then last year everything went tits up and our sat Nav got confused and completely blew up 🤣 were we a home ed blog? Were we a health blog? Diets? Mental health? Recipe blog? Crystal Healing?
By March of this year, who the hell knew! And the whole situation was completely overwhelming for me.
So I unpublished everything and took a step back from it all while I regained my focus.
I hadn’t even planned to start S&SD up again at this time, but this morning it came to me.
Yes, Boe has started school (long story!) but that doesn’t mean we can’t get back to our roots.
As some of you can imagine, afterschool meltdowns with a HSC / sensory child are pretty tough, and so far, everything we’ve tried to make his after school time gentle for him doesn’t seem to be working as well as I thought it would.
He’s just started full days, and I’m dreading it, so we’re trying a new tactic of dealing with after school sensory meltdowns and this is what our blog will be sharing – how we combat that. The activities and coping skills we use.
Let me make it clear though – I’ll not be sharing HOW Boe melts down, as that’s personal to us, and whilst I know some parents in the same situation would be interested to know they’re not alone, I also know that it won’t be nice for Boe to know that people knew all about his most vulnerable moments when he’s old enough to realise. That shit ain’t fair, and I’m sure as most of you reading this are parents or carers, hopefully you’ll understand 🙂
So…. The family blog is back, and raring to go, and I’m kind of excited about that.
Are you? Will you be joining us on our new chapter?
Kate and Boe xx
