i want to take a moment to say "thank you" to all you wonderful people in this group, you've been an amazing support to me and the others within this group. i apologizing for not responding to many of the post lately as i've just been in zoo mode - Summer school has started back up again, so it give me a couple of hours to work with angel interruptions (meaning my little blessing from heaven needing my attention). I was hoping that the 2 weeks he was outta school that i could structure our life a little more - but that didn't happen - lol so i am glad the structure is back at least for 2 more weeks - potty training has seemed to slow down - wel using the potty has - he's become very aware of being wet and is costing me a small fortune in pull-ups and underware (I have to catch the underware before they make it into the trash can - lol) but i won't give up - i have faith in my son that we will get this done sooner or later - speech is becoming much more clear and more often - seems to be trying to really make sentences and i know that comes from constantly trying to talk to him in sentences. His father actually came by a couple of times in the past couple of weeks and spent some play time with him - which my son enjoys - and then he's gone again - his father is an unusual creature - it's times like this i think God's blessed our son with ASD so he doesn't really have to understand the emotional trauma of daddy coming and being gone - this has been this way the whole 5 years of my son's life and only got stronger after the divorce, so in a weird way, he's used to his dad not being around and when he is around for only brief periods. My son is progressively starting to do some things without his picture schedule which i am proud of him for that - he's also attempting to dress himself - sometimes it's just too cute to see how he's dressed - but that's ok, these are all things he wasn't doing even earlier this year. He's learning to ask for things better, tantrums are getting less frequent - oh but when they DO HAPPEN - watch out - they are a doozy - all in all it seems he's doing pretty good. Again, just wanted to thank you all, your information is informative, situations are comparable, posts are enlightening and encouraging and it's wonderful to know that we are all in this together. Blessings to each of you who are lucky enough to have an austic angel in your life. i feel i am one of the luckiest people in the world - because of my angel and i am sure you all feel the same about yours. Peace.
