|My apologies to this family. I don't know who they are, they just popped up when I googled "perfect family pic" :-)|

I hear from lots of special-needs parents who sometimes complain about seeing their friends post pictures of their happy, typical kids on Facebook, especially in the summer and around the holidays.
I'm just letting you all know that those pics on Facebook most likely aren't even close to showing reality.
and people comment "wow it looks like he's having a great time"
Well in reality, he had an ok time, but he almost grabbed a woman's butt, and didn't want to walk back cuz he was tired, and he was starving but wouldn't eat the snacks we brought... but the pics didn't tell you that story...
So we all do it! It doesn't mean our typical friends have perfect lives. And we all know we sure as heck don't have perfect lives.
-- If you're gonna shop Amazon anyway, can I ask that you enter Amazon by using the search box above or by going to http://www.amazon.com/?tag=a050ef-20 This way I can make a little money to help pay for my son's after school & weekend therapies. This blogging thing has been awesome & life changing for me... but I must admit that it's taking up a lot more time than I ever thought... so if I can make a few bucks it'll make it easier for me to justify....Love you all! Thanks!!
