Today I took down my folding laundry doors and instead put up a curtain partition. I could have replaced the doors but I kept hearing how crappy they were so....I saved $20 and bought nice curtains. There is a point to this....I think.
Today I get a note home from Speech it says "

My son is a food stuffer. I know its Sensory....maybe a a bit behavioral at this point. So if you have been following me on Facebook you can see that Frankie has been having behavioral problems since he has been back to school. They add 5 kids to his class......and Frankie doesn't like change or attention taken away from him....so he regresses behaviorally. Lots on my mind, so much bothering me, wondering what I can do.
So my little stuffer is sitting at the table with a paper plate, 3 pretzels and a cereal bar. I am watching to make sure he breaths as he shoves the entire cereal bar in his mouth and then something happens. He takes a bite and put it down...... "take a bite and put it down like Andrea says" he repeats after every bite. Maybe silly, but I cried.....that it all it takes. He took nibbles of pretzel and put it down and waited. Who was this kid???
Well....it was great.

I saw someone write- Ice + Princess x Bubbles = Toddler Euphoria
Lol its probably true.
I have to say first that I wouldn't normally try to bring Frankie to these things alone. I am Super blessed with a sister who works at Nassau Coliseum and can get me tickets for free and also parents who have the patience to help me with "I like to test people" Frankie and "Super happy jumpy" Lia
So I can say that other then the boring intermission the kids did quite well for 2 hours sitting in a cold stadium. Frankie did freak at the idea of eating any food there, he was pretty upset when he though he was getting pretzels and got a soft pretzel, Mommy should have known better.
I guess if i do these things a few times I get less stressed out. As he gets older and I have dealt with this longer I also get less stressed out. Autism has given me patience I never thought i could posses and the ability to let things just roll off my back.
Today we missed the bus.....it was OK, i drove him and then went shopping at Target. use to be a big deal....no not a big deal anymore. Great day, Great weekend, Great Life :)
