The Wiggles!

We saw the Wiggles today, and they were fab!

Originally we were meant to go yesterday, and they had a arranged for a "meet-and-greet", but we had the meeting with the rehab team, so we changed the tickets for today, but unfortunately, no "meet-and-greet". :( The concert was at 10am, at Hornsby RSL, so it was a bit of a stretch for us to get there on time anyhow, but we made it with about 15 minutes to spare.

Kayla went in front a bit with all the kids who weren't seated in chairs, but Kane hung around with us. I love kids concerts and shows! And I love when kids enjoy it too!

there was no real reaction from Josh. At times it seemed as though he was "looking", but it was a bit hard to determine really.

Afterwards Kayla wanted to know if we could play in Time Zone... After I stopped laughing, I had to explain that what she could see were actually poker machines!

Things that light up and flash are recommended for kids like Josh who have Cortical Visual Impairment to attract their eyes and stimulate them. Its not that easy to find things, especially ones that don't cost an arm and leg. But! I bought this from the Wiggles and it's pretty cool.

Hey there Wendy, good to hear you're getting out and about - those whirly toys are available at Big W down here in Melbourne not too exe either - though when the medical bills mount up even $5 is considered exe.

PS: Was so glad to find you're a scrapper too - even if things are on hold.
