Brushing his hair.
Linking up with the lovely Trish for another Wordless Wednesday.
I also use a screen protector. There is an easy magnetic closure too.
It's perfect for home and I cannot wait to use it on our big June adventure!
My eldest son is nine. In someways it feels like forever. I have almost forgotten life before him. In other ways I can still see him so sick and smell that nicu hand wash if I close my eyes for a moment. I am beyond proud of the person he is. He has taught me more than I could have ever imagined.
Happy birthday my precious boy. Hip hip hooray xx
Thank you for such a great morning. It means so much to us and to Cooper. Everyone was so welcoming and amazingly friendly. Coop was really indulged and the smile on his face was priceless.
See you again in March.
The cool change has come. We are off to enjoy a disabled surfing event tomorrow. Life is good.
Cooper loves to eat. He also loves to cook. This year at school he will start in the Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden program where he and his classmates spend six hours a week growing and preparing and cooking food. He is so excited to part of this. His school has a great veggie garden and small farm. This summer break I need to come up with some equipment that will make kitchen life a bit easier and more accessible for Cooper.
Together with his teacher, integration aide and kitchen teacher we have decided to try Cooper sitting at the kitchen bench in one spot preparing ingredients as it's a busy area and safety wise very tricky in his walker or powerchair to access hot plates /ovens etc. He is happy with this and is mostly looking forward to sharing ideas and inventing recipes. He loves nothing more than coming up with the plan and directing.
If anyone has any ideas, links, products, experiences that worked for them or people they know please share with me.
We are looking into suction bowls for mixing. Stirling tools.
Tools for cutting safely.
Tools for eating. Cooper has tried many different things but it's a very difficult task so he either eats finger foods or an adult feeds him.
I know the thermomix does everything but hey they are looking at hands on rustic food prep and cooking!
Thank you and we look forward to hearing some ideas xx
And general just acting like a peanut or is that a ninja? ( who had just had a makeover by his sister)
How is your Summer /Winter and first week of 2014 going?
Happy new year to all our family and friends. We wish you all happiness and health in 2014. From our family to yours we send you much love, hope and strength.
For my family in 2014 I hope for many many healthy days, time together, new adventures in travel far and close to home, starting to design and build a new home and for simple, calm, slow days in amongst the two big kids at school chaos.
