PECs

The monkey has been using his PEC book (picture exchange communication) more and more. He used to hate it so we stopped using it. We brought it back a few weeks ago and it seems to be clicking. He loves car rides so he gets the car ride PEC and places it in the front…

He is invited.

My husband had just left to drive the monkey around for the zillionth time today. My husband never minds doing this. He will be busy working on the house, the monkey comes over and asks for a drive, and he simply stops and takes him. He always says that the monkey doesn’t ask for much,…

Pocoyo and the Crying Alien.

The monkey loves to watch Pocoyo, a cartoon in YouTube that comes in many different languages. He will be watching episodes in German, Polish, Swedish, Mandarin, and Spanish. He likes to rewind the same episode over and over, watch it in different angles, and covers different sections so that he can focus on specific pieces….

Samuel Allen’s Law

We live in Texas. And we always worry about how my son will react in a traffic stop. I just heard about The Samuel Allen Law. Samuel Allen’s mom was worried how her son would react in a traffic stop. She worked to have this legislation pass, Senate Bill 976, which allows anyone diagnosed with…

A hug.

Husband was fixing a leak under the sink. Not really sure what the monkey was thinking but he went to be next to his dad. And after a while, he just stayed there hugging him. ❤️🙏

Just have to laugh!

Disclaimer: Peeing will be discussed! We have been trying to teach the monkey not to pee outside for a few years now, and we have been unsuccessful. He specially wants to do this when he’s by the pool. He will whip it out and aim towards the pool. I don’t know where he got this…

Scratches.

My back  has been hurting so much.  I have never had back pains and these past few months I have been getting worse.  I think it is because I work on my laptop and don’t have an actual desk.  I follow the monkey around and sit wherever there is space.  My daughter does the same…

Day Trip ❤️

The monkey is still struggling. He eats a little bit more than before but not much. He will swim for a bit, twenty minutes or so, and then he’s done for the day. My daughter mentioned that he has not been out since mid March. We will drive him around our neighborhood but as far…

Happy father’s day!

Happy father’s day to all of the special needs dad’s out there!!!! Thank you for being the anchor in our families! 💙♥️💙♥️

True Love.

In the mornings, sometimes I will stay in bed and start working right away. I will turn on my laptop and begin. My husband is usually working outside. He’s always finding something to do, working on the yard, on the cars, or inside the house. The monkey will wake up and come over to my…

Top of the class.

Post from the hubby! The year finally ended, closing another year of teaching. It truly was a memorable one given how the world has changed in front of our eyes. However, for the first time in my teaching experience I had an AU student in a one-semester class called Special Topics, Social Studies focused. I…

The toilet. 😂

We have been making some upgrades around the house. Well my husband actually. The rest of us just try to help whenever possible. 😁 The carpet was pulled from the living room. But while we wait for the tile to arrive, my husband decided to move to the bathroom. Our toilet is old. My husband…
