Why I’ve had a change of heart about #Autism Awareness month

As one ages through life, one tends to gain wisdom and insight that they were previously lacking. What I mean by wisdom is learning from one’s past and gaining insights into different ways of thinking. I’m absolutely no exception to this, and I want to share something that I’ve recently… Read more »




Here’s what happened

      2 Comments on Here’s what happened

It’s been a few days and there are a few reasons for that. The biggest however, is that this site went down and it took me almost three days to fix it. I’m still not sure what happened but I’ve rebuilt from the ground up and I think everything is… Read more »




I’m sick for a few days and it all goes to hell

First things first. The boys had a great day at school and received a big surprise when they got home, in the form of my Dad taking  all three of them to dinner. ☺ I mentioned in the title about things going to hell. That’s in reference to this blog…. Read more »




Why getting my youngest with #Autism to school is so exhausting 

Remember last night when I said that I suspected Emmett was going to have a difficult time this morning? That turned out to be the understatement of the year.  Emmett was beside himself all morning long. Lizze and I tried forever to help him through whatever emotional hurdle was in… Read more »




He’s making himself sick over this stupid State testing

As of 1:30 AM this morning, both Elliott and Emmett will be returning to school. I should say that they are healthy enough to return to school. Elliott shouldn’t be a problem but I think Emmett’s going to be. Why would I say that? He’s already so nervous about going… Read more »




It’s the not knowing that kills me as a parent

It’s becoming clear that Gavin’s struggling more and more. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know if this is another leg of his journey with Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, the result of changes to his medications or just par for the course. His level of functionality is decreasing and doing so in… Read more »




1 BIG reason I’m worried about Gavin

      No Comments on 1 BIG reason I’m worried about Gavin

This is an important update on Gavin’s current overall status and one that’s a bit concerning, although not entirely unexpected. Gavin’s officially off of Lithium for the first time in over a decade. We were a bit caught off guard at the timing because we were supposed to stop this… Read more »




I feel like I’m being held hostage by my sick kids 

Both Elliott and Emmett we’re home from school, as I mentioned earlier. Both boys also seemed to be doing better during the first half of the morning. Unfortunately, shortly after the lunch hour, things went downhill. Lizze and Gavin were both sleeping. It was just the E’s and myself in… Read more »




We just can’t catch a break

      No Comments on We just can’t catch a break

After I finally got the kids to sleep last night, I ran into another mini-crisis. Out of nowhere, Gavin wakes up sobbing because his back and neck hurt so bad that he couldn’t go back to sleep.  I woke Lizze up. It took her and I both, to calm Gavin… Read more »




The past 5 days have taken their toll

      No Comments on The past 5 days have taken their toll

As I’m writing this entry, it’s 12:35am and I’m not sleeping or even in my own bed. Both Elliott and Emmett are awake, feeling like shit and running fevers. To make things even more unfortunate, I’m running a low grade fever as well.  What I need more than anything is… Read more »
