Pudsey cakes for Children in Need and some Quality Sibling Time

Do you sometimes feel that your child with a learning disability takes more of your attention?
Do you try to factor in activities exclusively for their siblings?
Does this leave you feeling guilty at times?

Research shows that even half an hour spent together where they are the sole focus of your attention reaps enormous benefits for siblings of children with a disability.

Last night while Natty was having a story read to her by Daddy Downs Side Up, Mia and I baked up a batch of Children in Need cakes for a charity cake sale at school today. We had fun looking on Pinterest for ideas and creating little paw prints, spotty dotties and Pudsey bear faces with butter cream, icing and food colouring.

The stains might take all week to scrub off our fingers, but we had a giggle together. We chatted uninterrupted while we worked. And the results weren't too bad either!
