Silas is passed out on the couch right now, I’m not sure whether to move him to his bed or not. He’s all nestled in there and he looks so peaceful. I’ll move him in a bit I think. I just wanna crawl in and snuggle him. So yesterday Isaac was preoccupied with with CD… Continue reading More ABC’s
After a rough morning I wondered weather or not I should write what happened here or just journal it. This isn’t the easiest thing to write but this blog is about being authentic and about saying things that most people are to scared or embarrassed to say so people don’t feel alone. It’s been a… Continue reading I’ll have a new brain please…and a side of sanity…
Ahhh the glorious glow after having an adjustment from the chiro. It gives me a delicious endorphine rush which truly makes me happy. I think I’ll have to get the hips done one more time but I just feel more…aligned. Silas was so stinking funny there. I was on my tummy and the dr had… Continue reading Funny Kid
There a messageboard that I go to that’s all about autism. We talk about everything there. Some woman mentioned her son’s fascination with letters and spelling so I told her my son was like that also. To that she replies: ” I know- you don’t see it very often- it is called hyperlexia- look it… Continue reading Hyperlexia?
Anyone watch Private Practice last night? If you did, you’ll know why I feel rather insulted by it. If not, let me catch you up on what happened. The show was about a mother of three sons. Her eldest has autism and the other two kids are typical. They’ve just returned from Europe where her… Continue reading Private Practice Scores a Big, Fat ZERO

As I’ve been trying to tap into some online musical communities I’ve also been really encouraged by people that really enjoy my music. For the first time in my life I feel like I’m actually good at this. I’m so encouraged.… Continue reading Music Music Music
It’s weird what’s just ingrained in human nature. I suppose if you don’t know any better, telling your mommy “did you poop? Should we change your bum quick?” (the echolalia makes him repeat things to me how I’ve said them to him) when you really haven’t, seems like a great idea to get attention. He’s… Continue reading Lies??
Ikey is saying new words almost daily!! Yesterday he said “squish” and “cheers”. This morning he said “fish”. So now he can say: Mama (which sounds like mumum), Dada (which he yelled out when Brent opened the door yesterday), row row row, up, this and that (depending if he wants this or that 🙂 ).… Continue reading New Words and GARDEN PHOTOS!!
Every time I sit down here I draw a blank about what I had been planning to write about so I just blab and blab and blab with no direction. I wish I could remember because I’m not finding anything to blab about either. Hmmmmmm. Ikey’s nursing wacky again (I just remembered what I was… Continue reading Sometimes I Don’t Feel Like Making A Title.
So now what? What do I do about Halloweens? What do I do about Silas going for sleepovers with his friends? What if his friend’s birthday party is at a restaurant he can’t go to? What does he say when kids make fun of him because he’s never eaten at McDonalds? I’ve read a few… Continue reading I’m Bummed
