Goofing Around

I spent some time goofing around with my girls, trying our hands a taking a couple of selfies.  It was fun and it was a chance to get a couple of casual pics with my girls.  It was part of my plan to include more pics of myself in my recollections of my time with my kids. 

Well . . . It's Official

Little Prince and I spent the morning at the IWK and it's now it's official.  He is officially diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum.  I knew that was what he had.  But somehow knowing today that he really has autism made me feel sad.  I want so badly for life to be easy for my beautiful baby boy and it won't be.  He is going to have to work to learn things and he will face challenges that other kid's don't have to face.  I would do anything to take away his mountains and to pave the way to make it easier for him.

But I guess better informed is better prepared.  I am armed with information and now I can learn along with him, how best to help him.  I guess I am a little baffled by my reaction.  I knew . . . but I feel a little heartbroken for my beautiful boy at being told that the autism diagnosis is official.

I went to the dentist today and had my tooth fixed.  I am glad to have it done before the move, but I do have an AWFUL headache now, so I am feeling a little quiet right now.

Little Prince has his diagnostic appointment tomorrow.  I am more than a little nervous about it.  I hope it goes well.  Even though I am 99 percent sure what the results will be, I am still nervous.  I hope my little man has a good day.
