Typical Sunday afternoon.

A typical Sunday afternoon inside our autism home! 😂🤣I love seeing him do this! ❤️

Thank you.

Today is our autism awareness walk coordinated by the amazing people from our local society. I’m pretty lucky that the company that I work for will pay for an employee and their plus one registration fee. Last year we had the biggest team and this year it looks like we will keep that title. Many…

All you need is a hug.

Post from the hubby: I was at the gym yesterday and saw a dad/son duo that was working out. I’ve seen them before at the gym and at the therapy place that my son attends. The son is an autistic young man who may be about 20 years old. The times that I’ve seen them…

My husband has been handling some family issues, so I thought I could go and pick up my meds. I told the monkey to go get his shoes, we were going out. He ran and got them and I helped him put them on. He grabbed my purse and the keys (this is how he…

Sometimes you just have to laugh. 😂

I told the monkey to come up stairs with me so that I can take a shower. When one of us is alone, we lock ourselves in my room to shower. We can’t risk the monkey wondering off somewhere. I’m still not feeling well so I’m pretty slow. I’m coming upstairs and carrying a load…

Reaching Out. 💙

Last week I was having a rough day. I was at work but really needed someone. I reached out to a fellow autism mom. We aren’t very close. We know each other as she is an autism activist and a leader for our autism community in our city. She messaged me to confirm some details…

He is Autism.

My husband went to an autism event with his students. There were different vendors and he saw this piece and he thought of me. I absolutely love it. In the back, the artist dedicated it to me with the message, “From one autism mom to another. 💙”It reads: He covers his ears in fear. Loud…
