Back in the day

So this article about a letter from a mother to her autistic son doesn’t necessarily relate to me in regards to their relationship, it does take me back. In fact I just realized tonight I’ve been writing this blog for nearly ten years now.

At the time, my son and I were early on in our journey. So in honor of those ten years and for all mothers and fathers of sons or daughters with autism, this letter is for you. It’s entitled “A Letter to my Son with Autism” by Kristen Williams over at The Mighty. We should all write a letter to our child.

Sincerely-

Surprise!

Over the weekend, I noticed that my oldest son hadn’t turned in his permission slip for yoga like I asked him too last week. He also kept forgetting to give the donation certificate we received for a donation we made in honor of a friends mom who suddenly passed away recently to that friend.

Well, I e-mailed his teacher this morning but since it was a half-day, she never got back to me. When I asked him about those two things tonight however, he said he did both. I’m very proud of him. It was a nice surprise.

Sincerely-

Christmas story

Like I do every year, I asked my kids who they wanted to buy a Christmas gift and for my oldest son, he always says his cousin. For whatever reason, he’s always (I think) looked up to him.

This year he wanted to get St. Louis Blues hockey t-shirts for his cousin and himself, each with the name of one of the Blues goalies.  I couldn’t be more proud of him.

Sincerely-
