The Lighter Side of #Autism and Special Needs Parenting

There are so many things that we go through as special needs parents that it’s easy to get lost in all the chaos swirling all around us. What with all the things we have to worry about, like therapies, IEP’s, medications, meltdowns, specialists and just about anything else you can imagine. 

One of the things that I really try to do is not miss the forest for the trees. 

In other words, I really try to appreciate the things that do come along and make me smile.  They may be few and far between but honestly, that makes them mean so much more. 

I had one of these lighter make me smile moments today and I wanted to share it with you all.

My wife lives with chronic pain.  She’s pretty much miserable all the time and understandably so.  She’s also never been much of a dog person, instead preferring the company of cats. 

We have two dogs that are really affectionate and very in tune with the people in our house.  If someone is upset, in pain or otherwise in distress, they take it upon themselves to literally climb up and lay on you, linking your face until you can’t help but smile. 

Guess who today’s victim was. She wasn’t the only one smiling…. 😉
