My kids are absolutely awesome. I love them unconditionally and would die for any of them in a heartbeat. That being said, my kids can do some weird shit.
I wanted to take a few minutes and update ya’ll as to where we stand when it comes to Operation Hope. For starters, Gavin seems to really be doing well at Lizze’s parents. I’m not entirely sure why that is but I do know that the expectations are different there than they are at home. …View full post
Last night was really, really weird. Some how, I ended up on the couch. I think it was to hot on the second floor and I was uncomfortable. For me, I sleep better when it’s colder in the room. Anyway, Lizze woke me up when she got up this morning and told me to go …View full post
Gavin got up this morning and went to use the bathroom. We make him sit because it’s safer for everyone :) Well this morning for some reason he refuses to tell us he stood up while he was peeing. So he peed all over and our bathroom is carpeted (horrible idea but we didn’t do …View full post
As a special needs parent to 3 boys on the #Autism spectrum, it’s no secret that life is challenging. On most days I feel completely overwhelmed by all my responsibility. I suspect that many of you out there have experienced similar feelings as well. When you find yourself completely overwhelmed what do you do? Typically, …View full post
I’ve mentioned many times before, that when it comes to Gavin, I have a hard time accepting that he is capable of the things he is. In the back if my mind, there’s always this little voice that keeps saying that he’s just misunderstood. As a parent, it’s really difficult to believe that your child …View full post
We have another wraparound meeting this morning. Lizze doesn’t feel up to going so I’ll be flying solo on this one again. I just not into these meetings anymore. Truthfully, I don’t think they can help us and I feel like this is beginning to be a waste of precious energy. It’s not that the …View full post
So Bella is back from the Vet’s office and is going to be just fine. They removed the tape, which she had a reaction to. She also did pop one stitch, but she’s already healing up nicely. They did fit her for an e-collar. To say Bella was unhappy about that would be a gross …View full post
Emmett made his triumphant return to occupational and speech therapies today. To say he was excited would be the understatement of the century. He would only allow me to take him today. I don’t know what that was all about but he was insistent. I would like to thank Buckeye Community Health Plan for causing …View full post
The police showed up at my house a few minutes ago. Someone, decided that we weren’t going through enough already. They decided to create more drama and turmoil in our lives. A few years ago, one of my neighbors from a few doors down was drunk and driving his car all over the neighborhood. Up …View full post
I was thinking today and I realized something. Emmett both loves and hates stickers, all at the same time. I know that probably sounds weird. Emmett absolutely loves to get stickers and stick then to anything he can, including his entire body. At the same time, if there is a sticker on something and he …View full post

I thought I had hit a home run with dinner tonight and I think on most nights it would have been a grandslam. However, it didn’t quite work out as planned.

Three-year-old Keith seemed content as he passed under the festive blue-and-white balloon arch. His mom, Amiee, held one hand. My daughter, Amy, held the other. It was a testament to the power of parental love paired with early intervention and preschool…
