The Autism Dad Blog

I’m raising these three amazing humans. 🙂

Welcome to The Autism Dad blog. This blog is all about my life as a single Dad raising my three amazing autistic kids. I’m honest, transparent, and very open about the struggles we face as a family.

My message is one of hope, understanding, education, and perseverance. No matter what life throws our way, we always find a way through it.

This Autism Dad blog dates back to 2010, when I wrote what I thought was a private post.

Turns out it wasn’t.

It also turns out that people all over the world find comfort in reading about my journey as a father and a human being. I’m far from perfect but I never give up and I don’t hide from my mistakes. I figure I’m not learning or living life if I’m not making mistakes. My hope is that my readers can learn from my mistakes along the way and perhaps avoid some of the bigger ones.

My family has been through a lot and life isn’t easy but we are survivors. We never leave anyone behind and despite the challenges, we love the life we have.

I love connecting with my readers, followers, and listeners. All my social links are at the top of the page, and I can usually be found on Twitter, where my DM’s are open. Please feel free to shoot me an email by clicking the contact button over there ->

I feel like I slept okay last night. Today is going to be a busy day. Everyone in my house is still sleeping and it’s just before noon. I’m pretty sure that between working outside yesterday and the fatigue following the second COVID shot, they’re exhausted. I didn’t really sleep in today but I wasn’t …

We made some major progress today

It’s been a really long day and I’m going to bed super early. We worked on the outside of the house all day today. My parents came over to help and we accomplished so much. I was telling someone tonight that I feel like I really dropped the ball over the last couple of years …

My life isn’t perfect and that’s okay

The week has gone by quickly and that generally means it’s been a good week. It’s been a week full of memories and experiences that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. I’m grateful for everything in my perfectly imperfect life. The boys got their second dose of the COVID vaccine on Thursday and …

A trip to the emergency room and 2 #covid shots later

It’s been a crazy morning but we all survived. Emmett went to bed complaining about pain behind his ear. He had a really hard time sleeping and kept me up for most of the night. When we woke up this morning, he was in tears because it hurt so bad. I could barely keep my …
