Thomas Land

 

This summer has been the most difficult so far.

We’ve been battling with almost daily meltdowns, anxiety, upset and anger. Sawyer has reacted badly to the change in routine. Piper has been upset at Sawyer’s behaviour, and in particular, his indifference toward her. Lloyd and I have felt frustrated and helpless.

Just because you know there is a reason for the meltdowns and behaviour, doesn’t make it easier to cope with. (Autism parents, am I right?!)

I’ve cried a lot in the past few weeks. And I will tell you all the reasons why soon, I promise. I want to show you the many struggles we face, as well as the good days.

But today WAS a good day. And for now I just want things to be about that. I want to document it here so that I can look back on it tomorrow, and in a few days time when I feel like breaking down all over again.

Today I took Sawyer to Thomas Land.

And I think his face says the rest.
