I’m not coping so well this morning

The boys are obsessed with Pokémon Go. I normally don’t mind because it gets them outside and moving around. This morning however, I’m not coping with life as well as I could be, and Pokémon Go is driving me crazy. It’s all the boys are talking about and I can’t escape it. We’re currently waiting …

I desperately need to close my eyes

I’ve decided what I’m going to do as soon as the kids leave for their Grandparents. Considering that I’ve been up with both Elliott and Emmett all night long, sleep is on the menu for the rest of the day.  I’m so exhausted that I can’t see straight. As soon as the boys leave, I’ll …

No sleep for the exhausted 

I guess I’m not going to be sleeping tonight. It’s almost 4:30 Am, and I’m still not able to fall asleep. I’m exhausted but my brain won’t shut off so I can drift off.  This is what happens when I’m this stressed out.  It would be super awesome if I could get a nap at …

Something that most people might not think of, is how sensory processing disorder plays into things. Anything that causes stimulation of the senses, can …

I don’t think the kids will be able to sleep

It’s getting pretty rough as the night goes on. It’s hotter now than it was earlier, and you can’t even sit in the house without sweating. The boys are really struggling tonight, and I’m not sure they’re going to be able to sleep tonight.  This really sucks, because there’s nothing I can do about it.  …

2 shits and a flying fuck

I’ve been in an awesome mood all day, but I have one pubecent pre-teen who’s been copping a major attitude lately. I haven’t talked about this much because….. Truthfully, I don’t know why I haven’t talked about this.  For all the Autism related challenges I face on a daily basis, sometimes life sprinkles some more …
