Having an autistic child is not the end of the world--far from it. It is my hope that through this blog, at least a handful of people will get to understand that. My child is amazing, she brings us tremendous joy. We have good days & bad days, but we CHOOSE to focus on the good. Our belief is that by loving our daughter, giving her the most comfortable environment we can, and by most of all accepting her differences, she will continue to blossom--in her OWN way.


MAE: Giggles at the Grocery Store

So, I really, really, really wanted to write a cute, light post here today. Lucky for me, my daughter presented me with just that today.

We hit the local farmer's market (she does much better here--less crowded, more open space, no loudspeakers, etc.), she was in a great mood. Ya can't ask for more than that! At one point, halfway through our shopping excursion, I brushed some hair off my cheek and felt something odd on my earlobe. I touched it, and then suddenly realized I had those fake stick-on earrings on both my ears! Earlier in the day, my daughter had come up to me and stuck them on my ears. It was such a cute gesture, I left them there...and completely forgot I had them on! I can only imagine what the other shoppers thought (who, by that point, I had come in contact with more than a handful!). One was a light pink heart, the other an orange star--and both were prismatic, and very shiny.
I laughed so hard in the aisle after realizing this. My daughter got upset as I took them off, so I assured her I loved them and would put them on later (thankfully, she forgot!). This tops the day she put Cinderella stickers on each of my nails. The look the drive-thru cashier gave me was priceless when she spotted my 'manicure.'

I can only wonder what the next Mommy Makeover will be...
