From a non-verbal, severely autistic two-year-old little boy to a happy-go-lucky, social, verbal and friend to everyone fifteen-year-old teenager. Add in the little brother who struggles with ADHD and we've got some craziness going on! The journey has been well-worth the ups and downs and the heartbreaks are all worth it when I see my sons overcome the "impossible" and defy all odds. I couldn't be more proud. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
So, I ran across this gem of an article yesterday. I totally laughed my ass off. But, it brings some light-heartedness to a topic that plagues just about any mother of an autistic (or any special needs, really) child.
Read it. Laugh. Share it. and please know, that NOBODY really thinks anything *we* did, caused our children's autism.

So..... I've seen these Special Needs Ryan Gosling pictures floating around the internet for the last four months. I find them extremely hilarious and knew I wanted to jump right in. So, here's my first foray into the #SNRG craze! ;)
Have a HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY weekend to all of my American friends and bloggers - eat lots, stay safe and remember, without our military we wouldn't have the freedoms we do today.
Ashton is OBSESSED with the "blue notebook" that his teacher and I communicate back and forth with. He'll seek it out at school and write (scribble) and the same thing at home and it's usually just jibber jabber, messy and you can't read it anyways. Well, I decided yesterday that maybe he NEEDS to write in it. To pass notes back and forth to his teacher or to me. Well, LOOK WHAT HE WROTE THIS MORNING!! No input from me, NO verbal cues to write neatly and spaces, NOTHING!! I was SHOCKED that he wrote so neatly without verbal cues, and that he came up with this thought ALL ON HIS OWN!!!! Sooooo sweet!!!
