This week our word of the week is form as I have had to fill in a very important form this week.
With Ethan’s fifth birthday looming it’s time for the DLA to review Ethan’s progress. This means we get sent a form with over 40 questions to answer. Questions that ask us to describe the worst side of our son. It isn’t a place to celebrate any good progress that Ethan has made.
It is a very draining task. Because of this, it is something that needs to be picked up and put down. So this week any spare moment I have had has involved filling in this dreaded form. It still isn’t complete and will take some time yet!
It hasn’t been all about form filling thankfully. On Monday we ventured back towards London and visited a friend who I haven’t seen for more years than I care to remember. We had a great catch up and she got to have cuddles with Little E. I really hope we don’t leave so long between our next visit. Little E also experienced the Dartford Toll for the first time. She got to go over the bridge on the way there. And through the dark tunnel on the way back.
We also had some family fun. We took Ethan to Tenpin Bowling yesterday. He had seen it on Mr. Tumble and we have been wondering if he would like it for a birthday get-together. He really enjoyed it and he kept us on our toes including nearly running down one of the other lanes!
A very mixed week of emotions this week, I wonder what next week will bring!
