< Upheaval: What's next?

What's next?

So this is the fourth week of school. That means things should be calming down, and we should be settled into a routine.

Except that we aren't.

Our routine is simply the lack of predictable routine. That does not bode well for three autistic children and a child who depends on others for assistance with life-sustaining activities, like eating.

The frustration does bring positive results at times.

Today as we moved in a painfully slow herd from one school day event to another, my sweet little red-headed, non-speaking kiddo raced ahead to the end of the hall, threw her hands up, tossed her head back and said "LESHHHH GO! Come on!"

Small victories, right?

Absolutely small victories are the most rewarding!

I'm so proud of you for the work you do with those children. You really help make a difference in their quality of life.

That's so awesome! Funny how it's the little things that help you see the big picture!

I can't compare what you do to what I do, but you're not the only one who can't get into an adjusted routine! It's frustrating, but then I have a girl approach me after class and make a very grown-up observation that I never thought I would hear from her. Like you say, small victories.

You and my sister are the same person, I swear!! I wish she had a blog so I could prove it. She also works with autistic children and I get to hear awesome little stories like that all the time.
Ok, so you aren't the same person. You get what I mean.
