World Autism Awareness Day

In the last year both of my sons have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. ADHD and PDD are both on the spectrum. Please go to this link because I need to haul my flabby ass onto the treadmill at my gym. Even though I would love to sit here and explain it to you myself, skip the work-out and eat cookies, I just shouldn't.

Anyways, as I was saying. It's been a challenging year, and Hell it's only April 2nd!! My dear boys are receiving the help they need, and my family has access to amazing resources. Not all families are as fortunate.

April 2nd 2010, that is today, is World Autism Awareness Day . Now that you know this all you need to do is wear blue. That's it.

Dig out your favorite blue jeans and remember 1 out of 110 kids have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

It's also my husband's 40th birthday so buy him a beer next time you see him.

Happy Easter to all that do the bunny/Jesus thing and I hope everyone had a nice Passover.

Damn, Charlotte, I had no idea about your sons. I am so glad to hear you have good resources. One of my dear friends - leya (curious bird) used to work with autistic children and adored the children she worked with and would tell me amazing stories about these incredible kids. I know how important and helpful it is to have the right help and network and so glad to hear that you do. Happy Birthday to your hubby and hope you guys got to celebrate a bit!

Sherri we definitely celebrated Erik's birthday, we aren't afraid to party around here. We do have excellent resources and I am very, very grateful for that. I feel secure in my son's futures. Thanks for reading this!
