Not all bad

Lately, I don't know if it has just been more acceptance or if it is because the boys are getting older, but I have been doing a lot better with everything. Especially Matthew, but he is 2 years farther along than Andrew. I still have my frustrating moments (but I have those with my "normal" kids too), but I have come to really just enjoy Matthew. He does some pretty funny stuff lately and then I remember "oh yeah you are almost 6!" I put together some short clips of the fun or cuteness of Matthew lately in the video below.

Andrew is also not that bad either. He is also in the toughest age. I think 3 is way harder than 2! But this summer he will be 4 and hopefully he starts improving as well. He is starting to talk more and seems to be joining the world around him. I put together a little video of him lately. The last clip is him humming the Smurf theme song (he LOVES Smurfs lately).



I really have been trying to have better attitude lately. I know it could be a lot worse. Trying to enjoy those happy good moments and when the hard times come (which I have a hard or down day at least every 4-6 weeks) I try and get through them the best I can.

I have come to accept that Autism is a part of my life. I can't change it and I can't fight it, so I am may as well just go with it.

Life is great, but it most definitely isn't perfect (which honestly I don't think it is supposed to be) !!
