SO today, despite my trays for Natty only still being on order, I did manage to set up a little bit of TOT-SCHOOL and here's what he did :D
Of course the others could not resist joining in, but he was not complaining - he likes to work with the others and it made him feel that what he was doing 'must' be fun if the others wanted to too ;) The spaghetti posting didn't last long, he decided it was much more fun to break it into tiny pieces and throw it around! The bead threading he kept going back to over and over all day - I lost count the number of times I gathered those beads together again! The misfit monsters he enjoyed, but in reality that was something for Bleb and he didn't really get it. The magnetic 'pictures' again he revisited all day. So all in all a successful day. I have additional fun stuff lined up for tomorrow ;) He may not have had a great deal more attention from me today but he was certainly a lot more positively stimulated than he has been of late.
And lastly - for my nice regular readers who know my older three children, they have each set up a blog. If you want to comment you have to be invited, so if you want to do so, just give me a shout and I will invite you - they would love visitors of course, but I want to monitor it closely.
Their blog addresses are;
Another activity I tried for the first time today was to try and alleviate some of the stress of writing that Beefie exhibits. I wanted her to write some 'news' but knew she would struggle with it, so I decided to do something new :D I took her somewhere quiet (yes, that can be done in this house) and got her to record onto my phone what she wanted to say - warning her first that she was going have to write it all down, so probably best to try not to say too much! She did it - once she got past the giggles ;) - and then went on to produce a good (for her standard) piece of writing with no fuss whatsoever :D - Big Hit! Will do that again! Here's what she looked like whilst writing up - how sweet does she look ;) -
