My kids kicks ass today

We’ve survived the dentist once again. All three of the boys are cavity-free and in good shape. Elliott was so nervous that I thought he was going to bite the dentist’s fingers off, but he also did really well. In other news that’s positive, there’s a chance that Gavin won’t need his wisdom teeth out. …

Taking my 3 #Autistic kids to the dentist

The boys did great this morning. Everyone got up without a hassle, and that’s saying something for Elliott. I typically have to drag him out of bed, but he did awesome today. They all did awesome. We’re going to be heading out shortly and I’m hoping that this level of cooperation continues because it makes …

The week of craziness begins today with another trip back to the dentist 

We are back in Fairlawn today.  This time it’s for Elliott and Gavin’s dental check up.  It’s just a routine checkup and shouldn’t be a big deal.   Elliott’s a bundle of nerves and smothered in anxiety.   He’s knows he’s going tomorrow but he’s not happy about it.  Frankly, he’s doing much better than …
