Having a Second Child When Your Oldest Has Autism

Having a Second Child

Dear Hubby and I enjoyed our time as newlyweds together.  We traveled, we were spontaneous, and we had all of the time in the world for each other.  As a matter of fact, we were having so much fun that the years flew by quickly for us.  We were knocking on our 30s before the… Read More

It should’ve been a time of joy and excitement, but it ended up being one filled with stress and anxiety. I’ve blogged a few times over the years about Little Man’s speech and language delay. But communication wasn’t Little Man’s… Read More

Moving affects everyone in the family, even preschoolers. We’ve been at our new base for a little over a month now. About two weeks ago, Little Man came up to me and said, “Myles?” At first, I didn’t understand what he had said. But later in the day, he said it again, “Myles?” Then it… Read More

A Day Out With Thomas

Little Man is a big fan of trains. Whenever we go across a railroad track, he says, “Choo-Choo!” If we have to wait for a train to pass by, he says, “Train!!! Bye-Bye Train!!!” When “A Day Out With Thomas the Train” came to our area this summer, I figured it would be a wonderful… Read More

An Edible Playdough Recipe

An Edible Playdough Recipe

Little Man is a very picky eater. If you offer him something to eat that he’s unfamiliar with, he’ll politely say, “Nooooooo.” Eventually, we’ll get him to say, “No thank you,” but we’ll take what we can get for now. One day, I was talking to Little Man’s speech therapist about his finicky eating. She… Read More

Fun on the Tumblebus

Tumblebus

Little Man was invited to a birthday party this past weekend. When we received the invitation, RSVPs were requested because the “Tumblebus was coming.” I had no clue what the Tumblebus was, but I figured it was going to be fun for the little ones. The party started off with the children in the backyard… Read More
