    I get worried about not spreading myself. I try hard though. And I often delegate jobs to hubby, like taking the other ones out for ice cream etc.
    I do feel thinly spread but I also feel like having his siblings is good for Mr4.

    My gaps aren't that small. I can see why it gets hard for you.
    My gaps are 21 months, 14 months and 16 months. My son with ASD is my second born, he's nearly 5. I also have a 6yo, 3yo and 2yo.

    We have been having continence issues with Mr4 at night. I forgot to wake him to take him to the toilet in the middle of the night tonight. So instead I got woken up at 1am to the sound of him weeing next to me. Just standing next to my bed, still asleep, weeing. It went on my bed, on the floor and also on the jbhifi bag I had next to the bed that contained the 4 iPads we are giving the kids for Christmas. 3 of them were still packaged so just had to wipe the plastic off. We had also bought cases for them, 3 of the cases were in boxes still and the boxes had soggy corners. One iPad was out of the box, in the case and it was dripping a bit but I think I managed to get it all and none got to the actual iPad.

    Miss3 (diagnosed insomnia) is still awake. She kept me up til about 12:45 when I finally crashed out. The wee issue happened at 1am. I just finished cleaning it all (the best I could) and it's now 1:20. I am probably not likely to be the best mum tomorrow soo tired.

    We are currently having an issue with Ds1 at the moment. He might do something and apologize. And he believes when he says sorry the issue is done.
    But he may continue and when he gets in more trouble he will go on about he said 'sorry' and cry. Happening in class too.
    I had a chat with the o.t and she says it could be that he is seeking a way to start conversation with someone and isn't recognizing the other person's emotions in the situation, so continues.

    Can I just say how tired I am and just want to hide from the world for a little while?

    Had my last SSG meeting for the year with DS1's teacher, vice principal and aid. It was very 50/50, but he will be going to grade 1.
    He is ahead in maths, writing and reading, but he is unable to explain things, for example, he could write pages of 5 or 2 times tables, but wouldn't be able to explain how he got the answers, his response is generally "Cause it is"
    Reading, he can read books pretty well, but even though he will go through it, he can't extend from it, so asking him what happened in the book he might draw a blank, and being asked to continue the story. "What do you think happened next?" he will go off on a tangent.. and not necessarily go anywhere.

    Emotionally he is becoming quiet tired, being at the end of the year. So Mr Grumpy has been seen a lot this term. He didn't want to write one day, so he wrote about not wanting to write.

    He is however very liked by his peers, even though he can be quiet frustrating sometimes.

    I will get to know who his new teacher will be before the other parents (hush hush) but it means he will get to do some jobs as an excuse to go to his new class for a little bit to get used to it. They had their first Grade 1 transition today so fingers crossed.
    The school will be making me a social story for him so he can be prepared for grade 1.

    He also has swimming tomorrow, have a social story for that too... he has been looking forward to it for weeks.

    It's nice to see so much chat in here! Though I am really behind in what's happening. Will go back and read through now.

    We are counting down the weeks until the end of school. One very tired, defiant, emotional girl here!

    White Mage, DD sounds similar in that she struggles with comprehension questions in books (but is above average for reading overall). She has difficulty retrieving the information and structuring her responses, but does better with closed questions/multiple choice questions.

    DD has her second grade 1 transition day tomorrow and is very excited. I went to her new rooms with her teacher earlier in the week to take photos for a social story. We find out teachers in a couple of weeks.

    What are everyone's age gaps? My kids are only ten months. I'm worried how ds will cope when dd goes to school as he only socialises with her.
    10 months is a small gap - no wonder it's tough to spread yourself around!

    Our gap is 2.5 years. My biggest issue in regards to sharing my time is that DD does 2 x 10 min speech therapy sessions every day. I am always asking DS to be quiet and telling him he can't join in which breaks his heart It's similar during reading/spelling homework times.

    I'm too poor get phone fixed so sorry if spelling mistakes (cracked screen. It just locks sometimes.

    @ahaldozen how are u! U poor thing lucky they all survived are u sure it's not uti or something? Maybe. Regression because u were just recently away. Or has it been longer.

    White Mage hugs Hun this journey is very hard. How many sessions do u have a week? Do u get mug suploet for yourself.

    Sarji- that's not big speech lessons or is that normal? I'm confused by this all. I'm sure your doing a great job. It's very hard!

    Dd was sick this week so ds went to fdc by himself. Educator said he was much more focused etc and calm yet asked for DD all day. My kids argue all day at home. I'm going nuts.

    I've enrolled them into ELC but they recommended 3 days they will get funding for ds too. Does this seem common? This would be Childcare for ds kindy for dd. it's $80 per day then rebates. It's private. Im just not into the public school.

    Hope your all well we are getting over colds

    It's been his whole life. He goes to the toilet an extraordinary amount.

    When he was about 2 years old we had him tested for diabetes because he was drinking over 3L of water a day and we had him in the largest nappies and they would still leak. Eventually we just had to monitor his water intake.

    He got diabetes tested again a few months ago, because he still drinks a lot and he goes to the toilet more than hourly and does a full wee each time.

    If we are in a shopping centre, we have to take him to the toilet in between each shop we go to just about. Sometimes he will ask to go toilet literally a minute after he finishes and we have to remind him he just went, and he'll say okay, but be asking again in a few minutes.

    We can't get to the root of it.

    Have they checked his bladder? He might have a bladder issue. That sounds very stressful. Have u applied for funding for incontience help etc

    Could it be related to him not being good at recognising thirst feelings/signs and so he just drinks because he likes it/habit rather than thirst? My DD overeats if food is available, and I wonder if it's because she isn't very attuned to her bodily feelings and sensations so doesn't realise she's full.
