You may have noticed I have been unusually quiet on here this past week. Well let me tell you why lol! Two super cute boys, one who is almost 6 and one who has just turned 2 decided to have a week of no sleep.

They have quiet literally decided to take it turns not sleeping so I have spent the last 7-10 days (and nights) awake. That’s one of the hard parts about Autism, about having two little boys who can’t speak, about two little boys with SPD. They can’t tell me why they can’t sleep or stay asleep. I think as well the fact that neither Conor nor Jack have a great understanding of day vs night means they aren’t able to regulate themselves as most children would.

The good thing is that they are super cute and their little smiles cheer me up at silly o clock in the morning. The bad thing is that this past week I have been like a zombie so have not posted to my online Blog, as god only knows what I would say with the exhaustion of it all. lol! x

Usually when I write I have to get in the “zone” as my day to day life is so hectic with appointments, homework, therapy sessions, therapy appointments and so on, I have to sort of tune out. I like to zone out when I write so it is sort of like writing down what is actually going through my mind at that very moment.

I don’t blog every day on purpose as I don’t want to just write any old thing to fill up space. I would rather write something that has meaning or impact. I love reading your messages and emails, about how reading my posts cheer you up or resonate on some level with you.x It means a lot to me to hear what you think as well.x

Writing takes a lot out of me as well, especially the personal pieces. I feel exhausted after I write it all down so I try to space out how often I write like that. The Friday Freebie Posts now seem to be more of a random freebie post too lol!x I haven’t always got heaps of time to create the digital downloads as I am always so busy with the boys and Hailey so I plan to create more free downloads but they won’t be every week as I physically don’t have enough time to do all I have to do plus create them. I would rather spend time creating brilliant ones available once or twice a month then having mediocre ones available every week.x

With neither of the boys sleeping this week I have just been completely exhausted with the stress and tiredness of it all. Lack of sleep has a way of catching up on you like that but rest assured I will have lots of lovely blog posts up over this weekend. I just wanted to write a short post to check in with you all as I have been receiving some lovely emails asking if I am okay because I haven’t posted.x

I am indeed okay but wrecked tired lol! I will have some lovely new posts up this weekend and a very special Christmas Giveaway Competition will be starting next week over on my Facebook Blog.x By the way if you are on Facebook you can catch me on their everyday as I love to chat to everyone on my Facebook Blog too.xx

So I am off to put the kettle on now and hope my two gorgeous boys have a good sleep tonight.x Chat to you all over the
