Mr. Gosling

Ok so another parent with a child on the spectrum is a blogger and started this weekly friday bit where we create our own Special Needs Ryan Gosling picture. It is hilarious and so fun! here is what she said in her first post about this....

"The fact is a fair portion of parenting is not fun and 0% funny.  I would go a step further and say that parenting a child with special needs is even less so.  Many of us cannot take traditional vacations with our family either because finances are too tight from all the therapies, medications, and various interventions or the disruption of our child(ren)'s schedule would be too traumatic and make the time away fun for absolutely no one.  So we have date nights with our significant others at home after the kids are in bed.  We rent movies and have a picnic on the floor in the living room.  We tag team parent to that when one is caring for our child the other can get some R&R away from the house.  We love hard and we learn to compromise.  But for those exact same reasons we burn out from stress at an alarmingly fast rate.  Think Wylie Coyote trying to outrun the rocket tied to his tail and you'd have a pretty good example of what it feels like."

i have been LOVING these. they are hilarious because it is what we parents of special needs children deal with almost DAILY: fighting with insurance, sleep disorders (aka NO SLEEP), medications, therapies after therapies after therapies, special diets, doctors every kind you can think of (gastroenterologists, developmental peds., neurologists, somnologists, nutritionists, herbologists, ENT's and any other kind you can think of), IEP, regression, Stimming, OCD (REAL OCD, not the kind where you do something weird and claim "oh i have ocd" like its cute or something), sensory processing i need to continue? i could go on for PAGES. These little pictures are just a little comic relief for our actually really sometimes depressing and hard to accept reality of what we are responsible for and have to fight with daily. THANK YOU SUNDAY!!

So here is mine for this week....

Here are a few of my favorites that Sunday has made....
