One of the ways #Autism is challenging in everyday life 

One of the more challenging aspects of being a special needs parent to three boys with Autism, is meal times. 

I haven’t been able to get Emmett to eat much lately.  

It’s really frustrating for me because I want my son to eat and it breaks my heart to know that sometimes, despite my best efforts, he just won’t eat. 

This morning however, Emmett wanted to try Ritz Crackers and peanut butter. 

I made him four little sandwiches or which he actually ate two of them. That’s a total of four crackers and bit of peanut butter. 

At this point, I’m grateful for this tiny little victory and hope to expand upon it in the future.
