“Whoops! Sorry about that!” “Whoops! Excuse us!” I exclaim to random people throughout the city of New York. The munchkin and I accidentally bumped into so many strangers as there are literally herds of people in constant motion here. The first day we landed, we rode the subway to the World Trade Center Memorial. It […]Read More “Whoops!”

“Your child is a “low functioning autistic””. I was told this right after the munchkin started elementary school. He started off in an ALE class but it was still sensory overload for him. He spent most of his school day running (or attempting to run) out of the room. He was immediately transferred to a […]Read More Easy Does It
