The Life of Reilly

Interacting with Reilly is pretty difficult.  He doesn’t like round and round the garden or this little piggy. He doesn’t care what the cow or the pig says.  He doesn’t dance. He doesn’t talk but this doesn’t stop us from trying everyday to get a bit of interaction going.

  1. Thankyou for being so kind to me today and for taking a few minutes to talk to me about Reilly and about this blog. Ill be honest, I was habing such a rotten day! You just reminded me when I’m up late at night studying for a degree in child development, that one day I hopefully will be able to spend my days working alongside amazing children like your son and that it’s worth it. Reilly really made me smile.
