#GratitudePost

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the blessings of the past year. With 2021 being the year that it has been, is there room to feel grateful? Have we been blessed? Are there really things to be thankful for? YES! Absolutely. Especially during hard times, our resilience to overcome obstacles must be partnered with the... Continue Reading →

My Version of Wedded Bliss

In my downtime (a.k.a. me time), I sometimes scroll through TikTok. A common theme on contents that appear on my FYP (For You Page) are about husbands and wives. And for me, it's actually funny and relatable to see couples have fun making fun of everyday married life. Hubby and I met in 2005. We... Continue Reading →

Embracing the Imperfect

I grew up wanting things to be perfect and trying to be perfect. As far back as I can remember, it was instilled in me to always act and present myself for other people's judgement. Well... it may not have been in these exact words but yes, the context is pretty much it. "What will... Continue Reading →

Kindness and Kids

This afternoon, our doorbell rang. It was our next door neighbor. They said they came because they had never really introduced themselves to us. They also said that the pizza delivery guy brought them an extra box so they were wondering if we wanted an early dinner. I graciously accepted and thanked them for their... Continue Reading →

Autism Does Not Define Us

I felt so appalled the first time someone suggested that Aiden "maybe" had Autism. He was only 2 years old at that time and he was going for speech therapy because of language delay. I remember being so angry. How could she say such a thing! Hubby was equally angry. How dare her! It couldn't... Continue Reading →

Assumptions

Hubby shared a story about how Aiden once pushed Oliver and got in so much trouble for it. Later on, he heard a loud 'thug' and assumed that Aiden pushed Oliver again. In anger, he scolded Aiden. Aiden, in the midst of tears and seemingly on the verge of either anger or deep hurt said,... Continue Reading →

Child’s View

It can be tempting to disregard our children's views. Perceiving that their understanding of life (and of the world) is greatly limited simply because they haven't "lived" their lives long enough sounds very typical. However, I have come to realize that staying within that perception often limits me in my ability to understand my own... Continue Reading →

Annual Check – CHECK!

We recently took the kids for their annual checks. We are growing up! WE were ALL calm! Of course, both kids still tried to hype each other up (and on their own). And we probably were still the loudest family in all of the waiting rooms. But... we stayed in the waiting room! We weren't... Continue Reading →

Memories

Do you remember the first time someone said your child showed signs of Autism and you got so angry? Angry at the person who dare judge your child and they don't even know him? Angry at the mere insinuation that there was something wrong with your perfect child? I do. Do you remember the day... Continue Reading →

Prelude to Home School

Aiden's formal diagnosis came at the same he was starting Pre-K. As the school year started, we went through a crash course on Special Education. I remember during that time, I was still in the very early ages of coming to terms with his "condition". I wanted to grieve aboutthe lost hopes and dreams I... Continue Reading →
