... you get excited about a referral that was meant to take 9 months to get an appointment and is now only a 4 week wait.


... it has only taken til your child is 6.5 yo (certain since 22 months old) to get a specialist to think you might be onto something, and agreeing to look into it all.

That IS exciting and worth being happy about though!! Finally being heard and having your "funny feelings" recognised/confirmed is very good, but also overwhelming.

Hopefully your DS will now get the help/support he obviously needs, good luck.

You tell your friends not to bother helping you tidy up after a messy play-date... you like to re-organise the kids toys while they are sleeping (DD's doll house in particular!)

I thought I was the only person that did this! Though I prefer organising the toy kitchen.

Far out! This is me! The other night I brushed all the barbies hair, dressed them up pretty and put them in various scenarios in the doll house. It was so much fun that I then brushed all the my little ponies manes and tales and put them neatly in their box.  biggrin.gif

You know you have no life when you spend the night swooning over your new bookcase (my books do look so pretty now all lined up in there, each series back together instead of stacked up on the old bookcase), and plaiting a rope for the mice.
