|Auntie H decorating|
Anyway I decided the best bet for Bob was a full evening of things to do, which after he had had his tea started with a visit across the road to E and to decorate up Easter biscuits I had made earlier in the day. Bob has autistic tendencies and its too much for him on his own to make them, bake them, wait on them cooling and then decorate them, so I had them ready to go.
The results showed how much fun they had. You can see Bobs here, and Es' were very artistic
We have been blog wandering again and found Lesley on Scottish Mums blog is running a competition and this is my entry for the Bosch Dishwasher link up.
We had a few tears at bed time as Fifi wasnt here, but a kiss and a cuddle and we were soon settled down. He got to sleep in the big bed, he normally sleeps in a thomas sleeping bag on the floor, and he thought this was brilliant, though I had half expected to find him in his own bed in the morning.
I made sure this morning we had a full schedule of activities planned, is so much easier with only the one age group and one childs interests to cater for. After breakfast whilst I went for a shower I left Bob sat up the table playing with cbeebies on the laptop
Once I was dressed I decided we would make a start on planting seeds for the allotment and the greenhouse, this I thought would be educational as it involved counting seeds, learning about half and full, and different sizes of seeds, also gives Bob a better understanding of where food comes from, He was a tad disappointed when I had to tell him they would not be big enough to eat next week, months is a hard concept for a 5yr old.
