Emo the Emotional Elf

Hi all hope you are well.

We have been so busy here getting give aways for the author event.

It getting closer now so exciting to put books out there and hopefully get some reviews.

And some visits to my author pages, we have some great little marketing things. Like bookmarks, posters, little business cards.

My hubby helped cutting them to size Jake helped to put the keyrings together. Niki chose the words for the back of the keyring. “Children’s Emotional health matters” and important aspect of helping my kids with Thier struggles is talking about all Thier emotions and helping them with tecniques to best help them gain control especially when Thier anxiety is really high. So I think very relevant and something they work hard on themselves .

Having the kids help with all parts of this journey to producing the book has ment so much we are going through teenage years with our kids now and helping them through the journey into adulthood. Part of reaching out with the book and obviously the blogs and other social media is sharing life of our family highlighting some services that need changing , talking about the affect of waiting for diagnosis and the impact it can have on families that need support.

We do this together I speak with my kids not for them. I ask them first if they are happy with how I have written something especially when speaking about autism, anxiety, and the other challenges they face.

We also show the photos we take to them and they get to pick what ones are ok, giving them choise is important.

Jake’s face he realised Emo has a bunny tale on , was trying to understand stand how ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

I get really super focused when I have projects to focus on good job my hubby is observant I put the plug in the sink to run some cold water to wash potatoes , went to check printer and forgot, about the tap all I heard was ( for goodness sake FAYE) from the kitchen it was just about to go over the top of sink. Still he also finnished cooking the dinner aswell.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’—

Work on Friday night was fun, but little Tom was very uncomfortable, his hips were hurting after a massage his hip popped back where it was supposed to be and he was back to his chatty self. He said a new word to which he thought was very funny Banana he can’t say my name yet but I am determined to get him to try for now though I guess I am banana ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

His such a funny little boy .

I can’t remember if I told you all about Jake progress with needles the other day, but I am still so impressed with him walking in and having his booster jabs , not may side affects which is great maybe a bit of a migriane but as he suffers with them any way probally just a coincidence.

He also was practising his speaking skills with dentist, who is fab with Jake always remembering tiny details from last appointment he asked Jake about the holidays , Jake returned the question to him, the dentist said I have been working but it’s good,

When we left Jake said see mum I can be social bless finding his voice to talk to new people. This is how writing has helped I show him I can he shows me he can. Together we take on the world .

Jake got to choose some more books after, and he already read them both this weekend , he really enjoyed them. So another collection is being made.

I think I need to have an out house that we can convert into a library of our own at the rate he is going through books lately.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€

Any way have a beautiful day and new week ahead .

Much love Faye XX
