Hey sleep deprived #Autism Parents, what would you do in this situation? 

Lizze and I are getting a small break this afternoon because the boys are going to a cousins graduation party with their grandparents. Our goal is to go to family functions more often but at this point, we’re both exhausted.  

I’ve barely been able to keep my eyes open all day and I’m certainly not in a position to drive anywhere.  

It’s really tough to find some semblance of balance because straight up exhaustion is a seemingly insurmountable problem, that’s a constant in our lives.  

Lizze and I are far from the only parents facing this type of problem. I’d love to hear how other Autism or special needs parents handle situations like this.  

If there was a family function and you had a choice between going as a family or staying home and going to sleep, while your kiddos went with their grandparents, what would you do and why?
