the princess kitty had her dance recital on friday and the pobble came to see. she also brought along two copies of her test words book. one for my folks and one for hubby and me. her first book... and she dedicated it to me.
it might be the coolest thing that has ever happened to me. writers are like rock stars in my book (pun intended) and so the fact that she would put my name in her first as her dedication... i know she loves me... i knew it before the book... but wow!
SO BUY THE BOOK!!! BUY LOTS OF COPIES!!! BUY THEM NOW!!!
the silent prince has been diagnosed with autism. we found out today. and while i have a million thoughts going through my head i'm finding it hard to make them cohesive so bear with me.
things the psychologist said:
he falls in the severe category of autism
hubby and i have good instincts about him and his care
recommendations will be made to increase his school day and the services he gets
he is beautiful and sweet
he isn't ready for potty training
he functions best in high structure situations
with proper intervention he has a good chance of improving
there are wonderful support groups in our area
none of this suprizes you
and a lot of other stuff that is stuck in my brain, trying to sort itself out.
none of this suprizes hubby or me and we are grateful for an answer even if the answer is what it is. and so i've decided that i will have to grieve the losses that come with autism and look toward a different future for my prince who is beautiful and sweet and happy.
God's peace y'all
