and as clearly I am walking around with a ladder over my head so as not to not walk under a ladder so much as to permanently have things going to crap

We had no water tonight due to a massive major pipe explosion or some such two suburbs away – that impacted water supply to the universe. Or near equivalent.
At least Jasper didn’t spew on me during that time I guess.
The drama camp I angsted over sending Oscar to next week rang to say it was cancelled due to low numbers. What am I meant to do with the boy for a week when I’m on mega deadline? It’s cool, I’m in the process of answering that question.
The upside is I’ve booked him in for a term class instead – and Felix – and they both get to go to the same class together.
For all my efforts of not making Felix have to ‘look out’ for Oscar, they are so excited about the prospect of this (have I told you all of Felix’s wish to change schools and to go to the one Oscar goes to so they could play together? I tell you, sometimes the experts on siblings of kids with special needs need to shove their advice up the proverbial).
Felix still gets to go to drama next week.

    Don’t get me started on experts.

    I’m still not sure about it being a good idea, although Felix has now been asking about it since Kindy, so we’re clocking up to three years.

    I told him if we moved him, we’d probably repeat him. Thinking maybe that would be a detraction. But no. His response? “Cool, that would be so easy because I would have done all the work before.”

    The point being not that X or Y is a good decision, but that Experts On The Matter are, pretty much, as useful as a wombat with dysentery.

    Your boys are so lucky to have each other 🙂

    I’ve often heard that siblings at the same school or in the same class can hold each other back …. but there is a lot to be said for HAPPINESS above other considerations. If it would make both boys happier to be together I say do it 🙂

    Oh yes… the experts…

    I hope you lose that ladder sooner rather than later!

    Yeah, the experts can bite me.

    And I would rather have no electricity than no water ANY DAY. Gah! You win.
