I posted a video on instagram of me playing with my sweetpea, Violet !She's my oldest and soon will be turning 10 years old this week!
Showing her my earrings I got 3 months ago from my sister, that I never got a chance to wear and finally decided to dress up.
My earrings say "Can you not".
Not something I can usually wear to doctor appts.
Lula wanted to play with makeup this morning. At 7 am on Sunday.
Yes this is me "dressed up"
I told you I wear hoodies and sweatshirts all the time.
This is my FANCIEST 😎 sweatshirt 😂-it says SHITAKE HAPPENS.
My life to a T.
And I laugh at it.
Violet has Autism, as do all my children.
They are all very different from each other -
like every child on the autism spectrum, NO child is alike.
And they all completely own my heart.
And I wouldn't EVER have them any other way NEVER EVER.
They are perfect the way they are.
I'm so proud of them, and how much they've taught me and we continue to grow and learn together as a family, as a team.
So I guess my earrings mean-
CAN YOU NOT tell me-
-you are so sorry to hear my child/children has autism.
-if I just would parent them better
-what do I think CAUSED it?
-they don't LOOK autistic, or AT LEAST they don't LOOK autistic.
Or GIVE me any type of parenting advice whatsoever. Period.
IF I HAVEN'T ASKED.
Instead of feeling pity-
Because I'm not upset, I feel so lucky to have my children in my life. After 4 miscarriages, I have 3 wonderful blessings!
Offer a play date! A ladies night out? ( or Guy's? them? They?)
Help with cleaning?
Helping with shopping?
Offering things that HELP us with TIME. And mostly friendship😊
