Oh monnie in our world it's pretty much you got to do what you got to do to help them and preserve our sanity even when it's wearing thin.
I think we all get angry and lose it. I am literally on the edge every day.
When was the last time you did something for yourself and alone?

Well we had our Paed, psych, speech and OT the other day.
We asked the Paed about the ADHD/ADD. She said he does definitely have some tendencies, but not enough for her to rule out it just being caused by his sensory issues (he is quite severe sensory seeking). So she said we will keep it as an open discussion and maybe midway through next year when he is at school, she will speak to his school and us independently and go from there if they think it's a problem also.
His speech therapist, who is also a dyslexia specialist, said his issues that were we concerned about in that regard aren't dyslexia, but they are a separate issue that we absolutely have to keep on top of. For example, she doesn't want us or his preschool to display any of his art that is written wrong.
Everything else is on track though. All 4 specialists confirmed they believe he is ready to attempt school next year. Which is very welcomed news. They all said though, that it might be a different story if he were going to a "normal" school but because of how our school is, he should be fine.

We also have had footwear issues with our son. He refuses all sorts of joggers etc and a boy wants to wear gumboots. Has worn gumboots pretty much exclusively for two years. I didn't want that to carry over to school. Especially as he refuses socks most days. Which means summer is not great. Last year we had some nasty infections on his toes to deal with.
I took him shoe shopping to pick "big school shoes". Our school is vey relaxed with uniform and so you can basically wear whatever shoes you want. All the kids wear bright colourful joggers.
These are what my son chose. I am assuming it's the weight of them, making them feel similar to gumboots. He has been wearing them non-stop since he got them. I also managed to find some good Lightning McQueen socks which he took to (he says socks hurt him but apparently these ones don't haha) so I bought the store out of them. So this is his new school footwear. Not the most stylish but I'm looking forward to not having infections and horrible odour to deal with.

I'm actually lucky I have been doing lots lately on my own and over indulging massages weekly (I have phi so costs about $11) and dinner/movies with friends. I'm planning a holiday with DH for next year as we haven't even had our honey moon. As kids were born etc.. Now he's got a good job etc etc. I do know I need to see a shrink I just feel not enough hours. I hate not driving :/ and it costs so much getting your licence I don't feel comfortable in dh's car either.

The last time I spent a night without any kids was my wedding night just over 4 years ago. I've since had two more kids so never been away from them. I've stayed in hospital for various kids a handful of time (births and for injury/illness) so still had at least one kid. I'm going away for two lost of 4 nights (with a week home in between) at the end of Oct and beginning of November l, for a course, so I have no idea how I'll handle it. And no idea how DH will go with the kids on his own as the most he has done is an hour or two at a time and even then it's only happened a handful of times. I contemplated not going but it's something I *really* want to do. I did ask MIL to come help DH but she lives 10 hours away and works full time so not sure if she will be able to.
