Bouncy house.

My sister had a house warming party today and she invited a lot of people. We arrived early because I was going to help with the set up. We also arrived early because I knew this would be difficult for my son. My sister had a bouncy house. We haven’t been to a party with…

Our journey. ๐Ÿ’™

As most of you know, around this time last year, it was a terrible time for us. My son came home full of bruises, we found out it was his teacher, then we started the fight to make sure he was not only fired, but that he would also lose his licence. Aside from the…

What matters most.

Yesterday we went to the park. My husband’s students had a clean up day in downtown. I had to take the food midday and the monkey went with me. While the students were unloading the food from my car, I was struggling with the monkey. Since his hospital procedure this past Friday, he’d been a…

My son is my hero. ๐Ÿ’™

We are getting ready for this Fridayโ€™s hospital visit. This past Monday, we had a doctorโ€™s appointment with my sonโ€™s pediatrician. He needed to fill out an evaluation form, basically saying the monkey is fit to be sedated. When the doctor arrived, my son started getting anxious. He knew what to expect and it was…

Albertsons PEC

Our in-home trainer made us this Albertsons PEC, and he’s able to sort the letters with velcro. I love how his humming tells us how much he enjoys this task.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

It’s ok to ask for help.

I decided to go see a doctor on Monday. I don’t have a primary doctor. When I get sick, very sick, I go to the Urgent Care clinics. I realized that I need to take care of myself in order to be healthy for my family. But I didn’t want to take time off from…

Wow.

Now that we are picking up the monkey from his therapies, we get to sit on the other side of the glass and watch him. And today is the first time we have seen him use the communication app for a purpose. He typically clicks at random buttons but it looks like this time, it…

A belt is a necessity.

At night we always get ready for the morning rush. We make sure the monkey’s lunch is ready, his backpack is set, and his school clothes are laid out. This way in the morning, we aren’t running looking for shoes, or jacket, etc. And tonight I couldn’t find his belt. I looked everywhere and I…

We can keep going. โค๏ธ

We went to Sam’s today to buy some pool supplies. While we are looking at the chlorine tablets, the monkey started to get out of the shopping cart. We didn’t notice that on top of the pool supplies was a playground set. He was trying to get up there and play. He was getting fussy…

A little bit extra patience. ๐Ÿ’™

Our solution to my parents getting injured by the monkey while driving is that we are picking him up at therapy. He’s not very happy about this change. Yesterday he saw us after therapy and had a small meltdown. Change is always very difficult. But we figured he will eventually get used to it. We…
