It feels weird for it to be nearly Christmas, and for us not to be attending any Special Needs Christmas parties. Usually we go to the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children's party and the Spastic Centre's party. This year the girls will be at preschool for the RIDBC party, and horror of horrors the Spastic Centre aren't having a party this year. The kids are not happy - TSC party is the one with the chocolate fountain - of which they are huge fans.
Somehow it doesn't seem Christmassy without all the extra parties. I'm half tempted to chuck a sickie and take the kids to the RIDBC party after all. We need us some Santa. Maybe Emma could even skip school? Its not like they're doing any work at the moment anyway - they've already received their reports and are just doing craft and watching movies whiling away the days until school finishes for the year (that's 8 days for anyone else who is counting).
So, what do you all think? Chuck a sickie? Yes?
