Parker

April is autism awareness month. I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Parker, as you know, is my sweet little 7 year old with autism. He is who this blog is mostly about. He is such a great boy. He is doing so well in school right now.

This week, spring break, has been fun for him and he doesn't want to go back to school tomorrow. Maybe that's why he's had such a hard time getting to sleep. He has had a hard time most of the week.

His other thing that's been hard is wiping himself, waaaa! I am going to teach him, I swear. The problem is that he keeps trying it on his own and the messes are big. Poor guy, he wants to do it himself but just doesn't have the dexterity for it yet. I think I'm going to start trying to teach him this week but telling him to wait for me so I can help him.

I wish I had a bunch to write about him and autism tonight but I am just too darn tired. I love my boy, that's all I have left to say!

Glad he got to enjoy his spring break! And good luck in the lessons! You're a strong momma and can do it!
