Singing – Mon 17th Nov 2014

By | November 17, 2014

As I’m typing this and scheduling it, I can hear D singing. A sign that she’s comfortable and, although not quite ready to settle yet (the melatonin has yet to work its wonders), she’s relaxed.

A far cry from the child who was overly anxious after a challenging school week
and extremely tired after a successful but busy day yesterday.. It just goes to show that every day is different, despite the structure and routine that life with autism craves.

The main reason for D’s calmness and tunefulness is that they’ve started to practice the Christmas songs for their concert, something which is always wonderful to witness, including all those children who might otherwise have not participated in a concert. Happy, smiling, word-perfect children coaxed along by very patient and positive staff.

D loves to sing, she’s very melodic and found her singing voice once she was comfortably in her SN school, confident enough to play the role of Mary two years ago and sing a solo. Mega proud, tear-inducing moments.

Listening to her now, I’m getting an inkling of what they’ll be singing, her last Christmas concert in the primary section before secondary beckons next September. Amazing how quickly the time has flown by.

Every day is never the same but today has been a good one. Seeing my smiling girl coming down the stairs from her classroom and rushing to give me a hug rather than scurry away, head down, to the corner where she’ll tell me what’s wrong, was very welcome.

I hope everyone’s day has gone well Jx
