I have had a very up and down couple of weeks, with more downs than ups. First I had a rough week recently dealing with the 13th anniversary of my father's death as well as frustrations with my mother at the same time which made everything even harder for me. Then my kids have been driving each other insane more than usual. There have been concerns expressed this year over my 5yo possibly having an autism spectrum disorder in addition to his SPD... I have done a lot of research about it to educate myself. Then we lucked out and found an autism screening at the local college...we went and thankfully, I guess, nothing they said to me came as a shock. That was uplifting because it confirmed I was on the right track with my research. However the results were that a full evaluation was needed because there was a good chance that he will get an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis.
Following saturday morning's screening we had a fun and activity filled weekend. We went to the Corning Museum of Glass, toured Ithaca, experienced beautiful weather, cut down a couple trees in the yard, played with the bubble maker outside, etc. Then the kids went back to school today and I think the break from the busyness is making me think too much.
