You down with IEP? Yeah you know me!

Another IEP meeting in the books. And as usual, my emotions have been thrown in the spin cycle. I might get a little naughty by nature. So, I have some high expectations for my son. I have some standards. I also have some unbreakable belief in those thoughts/feelings as well, and an ASD diagnosis did … Continue reading You down with IEP? Yeah you know me!

Our Hungry Caterpillar

G is laying next to me falling asleep, seemingly completely unaware of the "milestone" he reached today.  I think that is because as his parents, WE want moments like this to reflect back on, and see the progression.  WE want "milestones".  WE want to hit our goals on a standard timeline created by all the … Continue reading Our Hungry Caterpillar

Don’t get too close, you might get hurt.

  My sister is in town from Arizona this week, and it has been absolutely wonderful! She is such a good person, and an even better Aunt to both of our boys.      So naturally she wanted to take both of the boys out for ice cream and a run to the park, separately, … Continue reading Don’t get too close, you might get hurt.

NCK ❤️ Love

I struggle with thank you's (I think the correct way to write that is yous, but that looks weird!). Even more so, I really struggle with thank you's to your face. I hope you know, by me doing things this way (letters on social media), that this isn't a cheap ploy for "likes" on Facebook, … Continue reading NCK ❤️ Love

Still I Fly

This past week my family spent some time in my new truck, as we traveled to visit family in Syracuse, and had a little water park fun at The Great Escape Lodge in Lake George. My point in starting this way, is that by spending so much time in the new truck, I kind of … Continue reading Still I Fly

Being on the “O” line, for our G man

   It has been a little while since I have written about our wonderful lives.  I guess we have just been busy living in the trenches of the autism world.   I imagine we (my wife and I) are linemen in the NFL.  I love football.  Specifically the NY Jets!  (Pointless info I know, but...) … Continue reading Being on the “O” line, for our G man

Dad’s integration, with his sons first integrated classroom.

   My son Greyson had his first day at pre-school yesterday, in an integrated classroom.  However, I guarantee that Dad had a much greater challenge with the integration than his son. I will admit that I expected my emotions to run a little higher than they did.  I expected to at least cry for a … Continue reading Dad’s integration, with his sons first integrated classroom.

I see you, seeing him.

   A few months ago I wrote something that was very special to myself and my family. I introduced many around us to the fact that we were recently exposed to a life with high functioning ASD, with our oldest son Greyson James.      I find myself thinking often about something I placed in … Continue reading I see you, seeing him.

10 things to share about my Son.

I would like to share some more about my son Greyson, at least in regards to who he is as a young child without trying to define him by his ASD. I find that as I try to search for similar situations that are relatable to our son (Just out of curiosity, I promise... I … Continue reading 10 things to share about my Son.

A Father’s emotions, on his son with ASD.

First lets get something straight. Our life... Our life... Is wonderful. We all work very hard for what we have, especially our son, but our lives REALLY are wonderful. This is not a poor us, or more importantly, a poor him. This is just us, hopefully relating to other families out there in a similar … Continue reading A Father’s emotions, on his son with ASD.
