In preparation for NaNoWriMo and working on a book about my kids and dealing with autism as a parent, I’ve been reviewing my autism blog and laughing at some of the stories from when the kids were smaller. I had forgotten about some of the things they would do and it was fun to go back and read about some of their behaviors.
I’m not sure how to structure the book yet and keep thinking that after I’ve read all of the old the blog posts and stories that I’ve written I’ll figure it out. Instead, I have found myself laughing out loud and saying thinks like, “Oh my! I forgot that they did that!”
I still have several years worth of posts to get through but the look back has been eye-opening and encouraging. I can see how far the boys have come since they were diagnosed.
