IEP meeting approaching next week…not a good time to stop drinking

IEP. Three little letters that drive me bat shit crazy. For those of you are unfamiliar with what an IEP is, it is an Individualized Education Program that is mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Here is a brief snip it from Wikipedia. If you want more detailed info then please click the highlighted “wikipedia” word. “An IEP defines the individualized objectives of a child who has been found with a disability, as defined by federal regulations. The IEP is intended to help children reach educational goals more easily than they otherwise would.[1] In all cases the IEP […]

WK’s Daily Schedule and it’s enough to make your head explode!

So want to know what consists in “A Day In The Life Of A Warrior?” Yes let me start by saying I know that every Parent leads a busy life. Trying to juggle work, kids, sports, etc. I get it so I am not trying to gain any sympathy here, but I think it is important to share what goes into making WK function at the level he currently is functioning at. WK is a “schedule” kind of guy. In order for him to stay on task he needs a strict schedule and as you will see below, it is […]

Back to school aka crawling to the finish line!

Ahhh 3 of my favorite words: “back to school.” Don’t get me wrong, I love WK a lot. LIKE A LOT A LOT A LOT, but I am so incredibly happy Summer is over and he is back to school. All in all WK had a super fun Summer attending 2 different summer camps as well as attending surf camp twice. I am not going to lie, I feel like I am schlepping myself barely over the finish line. We have had such a tough year medically here that the constant driving from here to there, packing WK’s Summer schedule, […]

Well now that the kids are back in school…..lets address bullying

Everyone of us parents are most likely stoked that their kid (s) are back in school by now. I’m sure everyone is sleeping in, enjoying their coffee and magazine/book in the am, going to exercise, having lunch with friends, shopping……..OH WAIT LETS GET back to reality. Does anyone feel like it’s amazing to spend the Summer with their kid (s) but you get ZERO accomplished that is on your todo list? I currently have a 3 page todo list typed in 12 font broken out by subject matter…and now you may wonder where Warrior Kid gets his OCD from? I […]

Holland is equally as beautiful as Italy!

Many years ago shortly after WK was diagnosed with Autism I was at the time in permanent pity party mode. I was struggling BIG time accepting the fact that my kid had Autism. I was scared. I was pissed off like no other. Why him? Why me? Why us? Why? It was a few months into “dealing” with Autism and to be honest the way I was dealing with it was simply not to deal with it. I basically did nothing for one year except cry. Clearly that wasn’t going to help WK in any productive way so I pulled […]
