Our Life With Autism
Michelle, This comment means quite a lot to me. I’m so glad you took the time to share. I love my son and I’m happy to be his mom. There have been dark days, but he’s an amazing kiddo who just filled up my heart by having a conversation about the differences between fantasy, scifi and horror. <3

Our Life With Autism
I love this comment so much. It is incredibly stressful to parent in a public that doesn’t understand. I agree. Not a bad thing. Just a thing. <3

Thank you, Elaine. I did a lot of crying in front of and with them once school was out. They weren’t sure how to feel, so seeing my sadness helped. You are right about the sharing of grief. I’m glad I stayed open.

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
Yes, very true. We need to be able to share.

I am so glad you love the parenting. It is very unnatural to me; a constant battle to be kind. Even now I am struggling not to be angry about crumbs and drips and kids who refuse to listen the first or second or third time.

I look forward to each task they learn to complete on their own. Each bit of independence. But I am also working hard to enjoy the other moments. Books are almost always a win. Sharing stories fills my heart. 🙂

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
I think, here, there have been longer stretches in between the beautiful moments despite my constant reframing. The kids are pushing boundaries, I have been dealing with some background noise, and there is the running to and fro. Mama, we need a break.
