A different side of me...

I started a new blog tonight for my (other) life as a mom to my Autistic son. It's over at Stumbling Towards Normal. Should be an interesting journey.

I just checked out your new blog. I think it's a great outlet for you and a great way to document things for Lowell. (And get support from others dealing with the same thing.) I'm here cheering you guys on along your whole journey.

Cheering here, too. I have a Deaf daughter, age 6. It has been wonderful to meet and share with other moms who have children with special needs.

he is the cutest boy...i think that it's a great way to journal your journey with him. I have an autistic cousin so I kinda know what you'll be talking about.

Hello from Ontario. I just found your blog(s). I love your creative look at the world. It may just inspire me to do my own book of dreams as I had a dream the other night that was so strange that I had to immediately write it down to avoid losing it. From a quick look at your Dreambook participants, I did not see any names of men. Did I miss them or are there no male participants yet?

Re your autistic son, I worked with a boy with autism many, many years ago as a child care worker. He was one of the most interesting, but also disturbing, child that I ever came across. I wonder what he is doing now, some 30 years later. (He used to wake from frightening dreams in the middle of the night that we could not communicate about.)

Your son is adorable! I think journaling your journey with him is so awsome! Autism is something I have dealt with in the past as a CNA. I know it is not all easy and I send you hugs! I had worked with a teenager with autism he was a character..he had his moments though..his way of getting attn was to smack me a good one...left me starry eyed..but how can you get upset with someone so wonderful!
