Not a fun morning in the house

Prayers for my sanity would be greatly appreciated.

Two kids have themselves upstairs angry with me this morning, when all I did was scold them for fighting and remind them of the punishments in place from yesterdays behaviors.

Oh my Golly, 'GirlyGirl' alone, is going to be the end of my sanity.  She's 9 and if this is any indication of what her teenage years will be I may not survive.   She is either angry or has hurt feelings 50% of the time lately.......

And of course I am still having issues with the 'MooMan', my 10 year old diagnosed with autism....

For the nah sayers that say autsim meltdowns are a lack of parenting, you can either educate yourselves or choose to keep  your mouths closed.

I can promise you we had tried many different types of therepy and have all the different behavioral modification methods I know of out there.  

I have never been one to use the TSS or MT as a free babysitter as some parents do, I work along side and implement what is being taught. We parent, we punish and we work very hard with the school and therepists and everyone around us.   As of right now we have no services, because he has graduated out of everything I can think to try, and I am left here holding this ball all alone.   None of the choices are easy and I bust my bum trying to get him everything he needs....

Don't get me wrong I am thankful he has learned as many skills as he has, his behaviors were much worse as a toddler and his speach was unrecognizable and now most of the time he looks and acts like a typical 10 year old boy, but in his off moments, autism rears its ugly head, which is more often than not these last few months.  I fear what adulthood will mean for him.  "will he live at home for a very extended time?", "will he be able to go to college?", "will he have friends?"   "Will he be able to learn to drive"

I don't know.  I question myself and everything around me all the time....

How 'Max Braverman' a character on Parenthood hit home in my heart

With Autism Awareness month coming up in just a week and half I wanted to share.  

What happened with Max Braverman on Parenthood this past week, pretty much sums up what I  what I see regularly at home and at school.   (you can watch the episode here

Moo sits or crawls into a spot and doesn't want to move with no real major incident that anyone has any understanding of what set him off.....   He is non-verbal during these times, he doesn't want to be touched or hugged.   It's confusing, heartbreaking, frustrating.  He's lost friendships and is missing out on class time when he should be learning.

Most people wouldn't even know my Moo was different at all looking at him or talking to him 90% of the time, but that is from the amount of work put into teaching him acceptable social skills and teaching him how to react to his emotions and feelings.  There was a time many eons ago when he would have went into a 45min melt down if you would have shown him a frowny face.  That time is long gone.  He's worked hard and learned so much, but what is socially acceptable in this world today is still confusing to aperson who take everything literal and needs time to process requests.    He's smart and funny, when he is not confused by the way the world works.  

Every person with autism has a different experience, which is why I think they have created his character showing so many different behaviors...   The actor Max Burkholder is absolutly hitting what autism "aspergers"  looks like for many familes.  He deserves way more attention for his acting abilities.

Mother Nature I glare at you!

Mom Vent!   


I love my kids and actually love the scheduled summer breaks with them.

I am not the mom that is jumping up and down and counting days until I can send them back to school.  Not that there is anything wrong with those moms, its just not my personality.  I love the SCHEDULED time home.

But I seriously need to get my 'MooMan' back into a regular school schedule.

Even My snowman is crying to put an end to this weather!



Come on already with the East Coast snow, freezing temps and even an ice storm.  I don't think we have had a whole week of school without a snow delay or cancellation since the start of 2014.  If we did I have been so messed up with the moodiness around this house that I can't keep track.
