This park is three homes down from our place. It’s Fall, the air is cool but the sun is shining, the trees are colorful, the neighborhood is peaceful. My safe haven which I never take for granted.
Laughter is the#bestmedicine, says this Autism Mom. A dose of Ellen D helps the anger and anxiety go away. After a few days pissed, anxious & hopeless because of health insurance & school issues I just need a good #laugh! Ellen Degeneres’ instagram photos & videos are so therapeutic.
I love you Ellen D! You crack me up like no other and help me #escape my autism reality. If you ever read this, just know I’m probably one of thousands maybe millions of moms (of special needs kids) out there in the universe who love you passionately! Autism Mom’s stress may not be physically apparent but our lives are pretty much in need of ongoing escapes and help from positive sources.
I decided to make a separate tab where I show off how I indulge, create, take care of me. After all, they do compare us Autism Moms to Men in Combat!! There is that saying where it goes something like, You must take care of you before you can be there for your children. Yes I get it but that doesn’t always happen. However, when I do find things I love to do I indulge BIG TIME and get STUCK to gain some of that ESCAPE and THERAPY even if only for a short time, it’s better than no time. Geez I sound like a drug addict but I’m more like a shop-aholic. Enjoy! I hope you get some get ideas on how to self indulge or teach me a few other ways to escape this autism reality. I’ve added the most recent posts about these wonderful hobbies of mine but going forward (as I get lazier) just please look under “taking care of yourself first” category on the right hand side of the home page.
My husband accidentally wiped my calendar out during syncing. The stress drove me to Starbucks for a Venti skinny cinnamon dolce latte…with…whip.
TBT. I had featured this on my IG for April AutismAwareness month in honor of my son. Alex & Ani puzzle bracelet from Nordstrom. So in love with this gorgeous piece. I’m all about trendy, environment friendly, good cause and affordable designer brands. Thank you A&A for this awareness bracelet!
Yes I was rockin’ out blue gel nails on autism awareness month!
I love this puzzle pieces necklace from Princess P’s online store for $14.99! I’ve been looking for a cute & trendy necklace like this for long time, so I’m ecstatic. I’ve searched and could never find one like this. Most of the ones I saw were huge puzzle pieces or had imperfect shapes. Thank you to Andrew’s school therapist, who was wearing this one day when I picked him up!
