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 »




Father’s Day is more than just ties and cookouts

First of all, Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there, pulling their weight and actively involved in their kids lives. I also want to say Happy Father’s Day to all the single Mom’s out there pulling double duty and filling the role of both parents. I have nothing but respect… Read more »




#Autism Parenting Exhaustion 

      No Comments on #Autism Parenting Exhaustion 

I’ve been dragging a little bit lately. Honestly, I feel completely spent, like all the life has been drained from my body. My diet and exercise journey has suffered as a result. The problem is probably more complicated than this, but I’m very sleep deprived. Even when the boys are… Read more »




When my kids have a great day at school

      No Comments on When my kids have a great day at school

The boys had a great day at school today. That’s not a huge surprise, but I never assume anything. I appreciate this ending to the week because we are heading into four day weekend and it’s always a good thing to start those out on the right foot. Apparently, tomorrow… 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

      No Comments on I think the cookout went okay

We got home a couple hours ago from our first family cookout/get together since Lizze moved home. I think all things considered, it went pretty well.  It’s going to be a work in progress as we move forward but move forward we must.   The boys had fun, although our… Read more »




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 »
