Forgiveness

My husband and my daughter have been leaving the house to work while the monkey and I stay home. The monkey has been home since he has a few weeks off before school starts. He’s been doing really good being at home. For the most part, he lets me work. He likes to be outside…

Ice Pops

When your ASD child tries something new, an ice pop. #ProudAutismParent♥️😭

Perspective. ❤️

Right now we have opened canned dog food hidden in our closet. The monkey likes to feed the dogs until they eat everything in their bowl. But our oldest dog, Bella isn’t very hungry lately. She just wants to sleep. So that the monkey doesn’t force feed Bella, then we hide the food. We will…

Much needed hug. ❤️

I’m so proud of you the monkey. He’s been in summer school for two weeks now. Different school, only half day, and then he gets dropped of at home. Change is always hard for him but he’s taking it so well. My dad has been in the hospital for over a week now. We’ve been…

Treasure these days.

Waiting for the bus this beautiful cool morning. We’ve been having really good days. The monkey’s been happy and calm. We treasure these days. ❤️

Happy Father’s Day

We want to wish all fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day. Thank you for all that you do! ❤️

Our Unique Home

We have been working on our home for the past year or so. We’ve updated the kitchen, bathrooms, backyard. One of the things that I keep thinking about are those ‘different’ changes we have made that are specifically for our son. These unique upgrades would make most ‘typical’ households question why we have them. I…

Patience & Love

This past year has been tough for so many of us. The monkey is no exception. He’s struggled a lot with virtual learning, going back to class, mask wearing, and now his phobia of going out. But as this school year is coming to an end, I wanted to share the teacher’s note from few…

When you love what you have.

The monkey was struggling when my husband arrived from work this past weekend. It was hot outside, 96 degrees, and my husband was all day in the sun at work. I always struggle to ask him for help. Not because he won’t help me. But he’s all day in the sun working, should I burden…

Trusting me enough.

Today my son asked to shower. After he was done, he went to his room. He picked out and put on underwear, shorts, and a t-shirt. In typical households, these things would have been a normal day. But in ours, this is a huge celebration. These past two weeks we’ve been trying to potty train…

Journey

The monkey has been amazing us so much. His cognitive skills have increased this past year. Although he’s regressed socially where he has a fear of going anywhere other than school and home, he’s flourishing in other areas. Schoolwork is one of them. His teacher told us last week that he follows his routine without…
