Did you know No:24


Good morning everyone, going to be another coolish day here in Newie. I ended up having Leo spend the night here last night, Jessica turned up at 7.15pm to pick up some medication for Leo and the silly girl hadn't medicated Leo at all yesterday and he was really hyper and running amuck which caused her to snap at him. So he wanted to stay with nanna for the night, this afternoon I am taking them to the train station, they are going to visit a friend in Casino and will be back at 4am Friday morning, Natasha will pick them up from the station on Friday morning.

A month or so back Jessica made a new friend a young woman who has a son around Leo's age who Leo gets along with like a house on fire which is great. This boy has similar problems to Leo so it is nice for Jessica to have a friend who understands what it is like to have a child who needs to be medicated.

Anyway here is this weeks five did you know facts.

That is good that Leo and Jessica have found new friends with similar problems. Fox is ADHD and High Functioning Autism. He is a difficult child to handle when he is not medicated. It is so hard for the parents and worrying.

The 5 facts today definitely have me intrigued. I guess because we don't always think about these things. Thanks for sharing them.

It is really good to have a support network. My ability to hold my breath is more and more linked to how long I have to bend over to tie my shoes...
