Video Blog Post About Our Boring Labor Day

I decided to try something new tonight. Wife he had the chance to go out tonight with a couple girlfriends and see a band.

We haven’t had a sitter for a while so I figured one of us should at least get out. 
And while she was out I decided to videotape what was going on with me and the king around the house while telling you about our labor day activities. 
Our labor day activities consisted mainly of lying around the house… wifey doing laundry… me cleaning our office and getting the king ready for his first day of school tomorrow…
But why am I writing about it when I can show you…
 so without further do…

If you’re gonna shop Amazon anyway, can I ask that you enter Amazon by using the link above?  This way I can make a little money.  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!!

    Thank you so much for this video. It's funny how I watched every second and was interested in all that you said and did. If this were done by one of my friends with typically developing kids, I probably could care less. But, here I am wanting to see it all… The things that you're managing aren't easy. None of what we all do is easy, yet here we all are, making it happen. We may not go through the exact same stuff, but we all know what it's like to do our best to cope with a life that we never imagined for ourselves. We thought parenting and creating a family was going to be something completely different. We see ourselves in one another. There's nothing like knowing that we aren't alone.

    I've been following your blog since my son was diagnosed at 3, about 3 years ago. I could not have done this without you and other parents who are willing to be as honest as you are. Thank you for sharing yourself and your thoughts with all of us. For me, it has meant the difference between getting through my day and crawling into a dark hole…Thank you so much.

    The king has a beautiful smile.

    1. Is it a happy autistic thing? Or perhaps simply autistic that do smile? "My boy frowns more often than not but when he does smile, he lights up the room.", I saw some mom (parent anyway) say on I was diagnosed with Asperger's and a man we know said to my dad "Your daughter has a beautiful smile." I was present and I smiled for some reason, it's been months so I don't know what made me smile then anymore. It's not a smiling capable autistic preserve though. Someone that's hyperactive, if anything was referred to "the young kid whose smile lights up the room" on once.

    Thanks for a peek into our life. Even a mundane day can be nice. I totally get the whole toys issues. My 3 y.o. chews on everything!! Laughed when you showed the blue rubber toy, that's exactly what my son would do when his o.t. would try to work with him on it. I never understood why my son would destroy his favorite books, but maybe that's why he does it. Guess I have to get used to all his books taped up.
    Keep up the good work with all that you do. Enjoy getting to know the family and all your daily activities.

  12. So nice to see such a happy guy watching TV in bed, listening and giggling at his Dad talking. Have a great first day Kyle!
