It's All Okay

Just a mom blogging about life with an autistic child.

Name:
Location: Canada

I'm a stay at home mom with two boys. Patrick is my youngest and has ASD.

That Sucks!

I know I sound like a teenager. And this post isn't really about autism (well, maybe a bit).

I'm trying to find someone/some people to watch my kids tonight. I've been trying for a week. First my respite worker cancelled the whole week (thus Patrick went to Beavers alone as reported in previous post). I called my mom....a short but sweet "no". And my next predicament is this.

I often split them up on purpose when asking for help. Wouldn't want to overload one poor individual with BOTH of them very often. I believe this would decrease the offers of assistance. I have one more phone call to make and I'm not hopeful.

So this is a vent, this is my whinging and complaining about the fact that I missed my parent's council meeting Thursday and I'll be keeping my bottom firmly planted at home tonight.

Missing hubby!

Oh my. I know your pain. I have just one child and it can be hard to find a sitter. I hope you find someone. Hugs.

Hope it worked out. i know I ask various people to watch my older son, but have only used two experienced sitters ever for the twins. And actually, the twins are usually easier, in the long run.
