April is Autism Awareness Month. Get aware. Light up your house blue, wear blue, talk until you're blue. Start a conversation about Autism Spectrum Disorders. Raise awareness.
I'm the very proud Granny (though none of them call me that...I'm YiaYia - that's another story) to 5 brilliant and beautiful kiddos. Every one of them is a stunner! They knock me out and kick my hiney all the time. Well, not literally knock me out, but you know what I mean. They are smart, funny, sweet, beautiful, talented....you get the picture. And in October we get another paquet précieux. Abundant joy, more than I could have imagined, all of them bring to the Manor. Right now we have 2 boys and 3 girls, so we really need another boy to make it even. I'm talkin' to you Duke and Countess de Couv.
It turns out one of our boys is on the autism spectrum. I daresay it's altered the family journey some, but it's opened our eyes wide to alternative learning and processing abilities. I invite you to read a little about Sir Ell over at Moss and Clover. You should go, really.
Sir Ell: It's the weekend, so we should kiss wildly.
Me: Okay, here they come, right at ya, Sir! Smack smack.
