Adaptability is a job requirement for an #Autism parent

Adaptability is a job requirement for an #Autism parent

Our start to the day has been a bit meh. Elliott and Emmett were both up and moving super early.

Emmett wasn’t feeling well and I decided to give him a late start, rather than miss the whole day. I got Elliott to school and then spent the next two hours trying to help Emmett. I figured he wasn’t actually sick but like Elliott yesterday, he’s upset about something and it’s causing him distress. I did manage to get him to school by 10:00 AM. So far so good.

In a short while, I need to have Gavin to a doctor’s appointment. He’s still seeing his pediatrician for a number of reasons but I’m going to need to eventually move him to his own PCP but that’s a problem for another day. Luckily, his appointment today is relatively local so it shouldn’t interfere too much with the rest of the afternoon.

Anyway, I wanted to also share that Elliott ultimately ended up celebrating his birthday with his mom and grandparents. I felt really good about that. Everyone seemed to have a great time and I pounded a burrito from Chipotle, before meeting with the kids therapist to brainstorm ideas to help the boys move forward. We came up with a few and I might discuss them at a later time.

Before I step out to get on with my day, I’d like to ask that you please keep Lizze and her family in your thoughts and prayers. They lost a family member today and that’s never easy. My heart goes out to her and her family during this difficult time.

I’d really appreciate it.
