There are still Positives

Despite all the trials and tribulations we are undergoing at the moment, there are still many positives. LMS has found she has an inner strength and maturity that have got her through all the recent stresses she's been under. She has also started to be more like the woman she was becoming before she married Mr LMS, a happy go lucky, sociable, fun and funny young lady :-) I'm glad to have that LMS back :-)

Drama Teen is on the cusp of becoming an adult and forging her own future life. She has set herself goals and is working hard to achieve them. She is looking forward to life at University and gaining the qualifications to start her career in Counselling Psychology. Even though I'm dreading my little girl leaving home, I'm glad Drama Teen is so positive and happy about this next chapter in her life :-)

Little Prince is coming on in leaps and bounds at school, his gains in his writing skills mean that he is catching up to his peers in that area. Despite his severe dyspraxia he has successfully learnt to tie his shoe laces, and he is hugely pleased that he has learnt this before many of his friends at school (and Daniel Radcliffe the actor who played Harry Potter, who also has dyspraxia). He has successfully transitioned from his original Teaching Assistant to a new TA, and is comforted that he will be able to cope with the move to a new teacher in September (his first change of teacher in four years!). I'm glad that Little Prince is making so much progress :-)

Princess Lollipop managed to successfully overcome her total terror of pooing, and was making great progress in learning to manage cleaning herself up afterwards. I'm confident that once we she has got back into the habit of it, after we have got through this illness induced constipation that she will be just as she was before. She is out of her co-sleeping cot, and we are on the way to getting her to sleep all night in her own bed. She is very, very excited to be starting at nursery school after the Easter Holidays, and can't wait to wear her uniform to match Little Prince's :-) She talks about going to "Big School" daily and can't wait :-) I'm glad that Princess Lollipop is getting healthier and growing up so confidently :-)
