Adam, this morning, ticking off on his fingers... 'The last five years that have gone by ‘super fast’....2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.... and tonight, we’ll say HELLO to 2018.' He pauses and says: But there are 64 more days after that until I ‘have’ to start being 14. Me: Are you excited about being 14…

A Letter to My Son’s…and My Daughter’s IEP

Hi There! It's me again... It's been a while since I've actually opened both of you. Maybe it's because I have you memorized like the back of my hand. Or maybe, it's because I truthfully get a bit sick (both physically and mentally) of you sometimes... You and I both know that there are some…

My Hores are Moaning

Adam's first week of middle school with is complete. Adam navigated his first 5 days without a glitch. 5 days down, 171 to go. I'm currently sitting on the sofa, writing, and breathing a sigh of relief....oh, who am I kidding, I'm actually sitting here diving headfirst into my second glass of wine. Tomatoes/tomatoes. Adam…

And Suddenly, He’s 13

Adam is 13 today. I now have 3 teenagers. I have to continually repeat this to myself for I often wonder how the heck this happened so quickly. But then again, the time that it took to get here seems like an eternity. In some ways, having teen aged children seems like an 'old hat'.…

It’s Really Just Your ‘Best Guess’

Yesterday, I ran into an acquaintance, whom I haven't seen in a while. We exchanged polite conversation for a few moments and then her expression changed. Her voice became quiet and serious and she asked: 'How's your son?' I immediately responded: 'Great'! A look of surprise appeared on her face. Then a look of…

Suddenly, I Have Perspective

I was recently presented with a question: What is your autism super power? I immediately answered: Perspective From the second that Adam took his first breath, I had this feeling deep in my gut that raising this child would be a different experience than with my two older children. My intuition was on high alert.…

To Comprehend or Not To Comprehend….the Ongoing Question

Last week, Adam re-entered private speech therapy, for probably the 5th time his short life. This time, however, it was a bit tougher for me to explain to him, for unlike the other 4 times, he started to pepper me with 20 questions as to why he needed to go back to 'speech class'. As…

Don’t Judge a Book…

Autism. They say not to judge a book by it's cover. Maybe that's why it took so long to diagnose Adam's autism. Adam's cover didn't look like autism. Maybe if he regressed in his language and skills. Maybe if he had stimmed more. Maybe if he lined up his toys, spun in circles, got fixated…

A Compliment. Brought to You By Autism

Since when did they start calling numbers 'integers'?? Why can't they just be called numbers? I helped him with math tonight. Apparently 'we' got half of his homework wrong. Have to appreciate Adam's honesty. Thank goodness for Chris, or my kids would be flunking math!
