Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

How long has it been??  Tooo long!!
Life has caught up with us yet again!
So what has been happening since September?

Well, Qasim is full time in school, and absolutely loves it.  His class is called the Foxes, and he loves being a fox - he has so many friends now, which for a child with moderate autism would have been unthinkable this time last year.
He has some brill teachers who have really helped him settle in.
The only down side to this is Qasim is going to have to leave this school, and start another one in September. The little man will be leaving infant school and going up to junior school.
If only we could take his whole class (building, teachers and all) along to junior school with him, that would be great. but we have to have a whole new environment, new teachers, new everything to get used to again :-((

We have had Wishbone Day earlier this month as well. The whole school wore Yellow in support of Wishbone Day, to raise money which was fantastic. We have some cracking photos of his teachers dressed as bananas, and Spongebobs. Someone was dressed as a Crayon, but I missed it - hopefully I can find them from somewhere.

Oh and how could I have forgotten - Qasim is a big brother again. Baby Zak was born in April, so it's all been busy busy. No wonder we haven't updated for a while.

And whats next??
SPORTS DAY - I am super excited - more than Qasim I reckon.
I can't wait to see what he does.
So keep watching, more updates on the way, we promise!

Now, if I can just find something to bribe his school with to keep him there another year..................


  1. Hi Shabnam

    Nice to meet you. I have OI as well, so it's nice to meet another family who is dealing with it like I am.

    I added your blog to my list, I hope that's okay. Thank you for sharing Quasim's story.

    Have a great day!

    1. Hi Zareena- thank you for reading my blog, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I am just trying to raise awareness of OI, and just show what day to day things Qasim does.
      There is a big OI community on Facebook if you're on there. Drop me a line and I'll send you my Facebook link if you like.
      Thanks again, take care-

    2. Hi Shabnam

      You're welcome.

      I don't have a facebook page, I just have my own blog and twitter and an email address.

      But I added you to the list of blogs that I read.

      Have a great day!
