It gets better. ❤️

Not sure what’s going on with this kid but it’s not getting better. My parents went to pick him up at school today so they can take him to therapy. He threw himself on the school floor and fought everyone that got near him. My mom injured her shoulder. We keep making changes because his…

We will try again. ❤️

Today was a rough day. School speech therapist also emailed me to let us know he struggled a lot during his session too. My parents said the monkey kept hitting himself against the wall outside of school because he didn’t want to get inside my parents’ car. The para-professional will be writing a report to…

Headphones. ❤️

We’ve tried before putting headphones on. He never wanted anything on his head. And today, breakthrough. Below is a post from my husband’s personal Facebook page. Giant baby steps. ❤️❤️❤️

Maybe…. ❤️🙏

I’ve mentioned before how it seems as if he is attempting to sing while watching videos online. Here’s a small clip of today. He just started doing this a little while ago. And if I’m being honest, it gives me hope that maybe, just maybe he’s understanding more. And maybe, this may be the first…

Non Verbal Cues. ❤️

Our in home trainer brought us a little three ring binder with PECs. She didn’t want to overwhelm the monkey so she only included six pictures. On the front of the binder, there is a long velcro sticker. He has to open the binder, get the PEC that he wants and put it on the…

What others want.

I read somewhere that the grass is greener where you water it. So let’s try to stop worrying of what we don’t have or what we need, and take a moment to appreciate what we have, and just be happy. ❤️

Active Shooter Drills 💔

This past Friday, the school informed all parents that there would be an active shooter drill. I can’t imagine what these teachers go thru during these drills. 💔💔And then add special need students? That must be so much harder. We are so blessed to have such a great teacher that understands our son and knows…

Friends like these.

Post from the hubby: Friendship is an evolving process. When we were younger in our marriage, we were part of a large group of friends that grew up together as teens. Our daughter, for the first five years, grew up with our friends’ children. For many circumstances and reasons, we all drifted apart from each…

Valentine’s Day. ❤️

Working on the Valentine’s day candy for the monkey’s class for tomorrow. My daughter used to love to do this. Every February 13th, we’d work on decorating the candy bags and filling them up. She’d write down each of her classmate’s names in her prettiest handwriting. My son, on the other hand, doesn’t understand the…
