Technology isn’t useful if it’s not affordable and accessible to the people who need it most

Technology is only useful when it’s affordable and accessible to the people who need it most. @vivintgivesback has done just that and made it possible for parents to have the technology they need to help keep their wandering kids with Autism safe. Please visit www.theautismdad.com/vivint for more information on how… Read more »




It’s the end of the world. Well, it’s the end of Elliott’s Minecraft world anyway 

The boys have really been into Minecraft lately and Elliott discovered mods for Minecraft PE. I warned him countless times that while mods may work, they may not always work correctly or they could even corrupt his game data, meaning he could lose all his world’s.   Some of the… Read more »




Gavin isn’t doing well this morning :(

I was up really late with the two youngest boys and woke up to Gavin doubled over in pain, feeling like he was going to vomit.   It’s really frustrating to try and get information from Gavin about how he feels because that’s a skill known as expressive language and… Read more »




Two of my three kids with #Autism are still awake at 2am

Not long after my wife and I went to bed, both Elliott and Emmett woke up and can’t go back to sleep. Rather than battling to keep them in bed and ultimately losing, I opted to eventually just camp out in the living room.  It’s honestly, the best chance I… Read more »




I’m worried about the new school year for a couple reasons

The boys start school this week.  They’re actually starting much earlier than they have in previous years.  Normally, they begin school around the second week in September, give or take. We’re going to start with the positive side of things first and then get into what has me worried. I’m… Read more »




I think the cookout went okay

This is the last thing on our reunification bucket list

We decided to arrive a bit early to this cookout because Lizze felt more comfortable being the first. It makes total sense because we wouldn’t be walking into to a house full of people. They will be walking into a house with us already in it.   It was my… Read more »




I so totally need a nap

      No Comments on I so totally need a nap

I’m totally dragging today. I feel like I haven’t slept in a really long time.   We’ve got a big day ahead of us and that’s probably why I didn’t sleep well last night. I’m stressed out and worried about how everything is going to go today. I so totally… Read more »




This is what @vivintgivesback enables me to do

I was talking the other day about Gavin’s bad reaction to his IVIG infusion. He got sick and I needed to be able to keep an eye on him without being in the same room.   Thanks to the Vivint Gives Back project, I’ve been able to provide my family with… Read more »




Today will mark a major milestone in our new journey as a reunited family

There’s a cookout at my parents house today and it was at Lizze’s request.  She’s worried that the awkwardness won’t be gone and it will make ruin Thanksgiving.  This will be the first time Lizze and my siblings will be in the same room since she left.   The whole… Read more »
