Autism recovered?

Medical experts say it's not possible to recover autism. We have living proof in the form of three children, that it IS possible. In my blog you will find recovery stories, along with information regarding health that I have learned over the years. And sometimes just snippets of life to give hope that yes, life can be normal after the hard work is done.

Sit back, enjoy, and be hopeful! RECOVERY HAPPENS!

Puppy love

Oh dear. We have done it.

We have fallen madly in love with my parents puppies.

Not good.

My parents will leave soon and take their puppies with them. And then the kids will be crushed.

Kate is so much in love with Daisy, who is so much in love with her. The second Kate gets up, it's all "Hi cutie, hi cutie!" and massive amounts of petting, playing and licking (on Daisy's part, not Kate's) and mushy puppy love. Daisy soaks it up and I'm sure if she could talk she would say "Hi big toy, hi big toy!". As I've mentioned before, she's just pure energy encapsulated in fur and teeth. Pixie is equally cute but a calmer puppy which suits Tony and Grace a little better. Pixie loves all the kids but is a mommy's girl. When her mommy (and mine!) are outside, life ceases to exist and she just sits there looking sadly at the door. She doesn't play with the kids nearly as much as Daisy.

There is a bond between Kate and Daisy. I think it has to do with the amount of hyper in those two. They're energy levels are an exact match. ;) When the kids are outside playing, Daisy sits at the door whining and scratching to get out. If I take her out on the leash, she jumps around like a lunatic trying to join in their games or chase them down. They're seriously just giant play toys to her and they're happy to be that. lol

Having a dog also evens the playing field. When two kidlets gang up against the other, the dog makes it all ok because said ousted child can go play with puppy rather than pout and cry that they are being picked on. It's almost completely impossible to be sad when a ball of energy is jumping all over you and showing you how much they love you. I can appreciate that.

Instead of our down times in the day being filled with "I'm bored!" and "I don't have anything to do!", it's filled with taking puppies out for a walk, or tossing a ball with them, or laughing at their crazy antics. The kids appear to have almost completely forgotten about TV b/c the PUPPIES are here to play with. It's truly magical to have a little furry friend to keep you entertained and happy.

I really didn't want anyone to fall in love. Puppies are work and money. Puppies always end up being mommy's job. They make the carpet dirty. Do not tell me about how cute and adorable and wonderful they are, I'm not listening.

But I'm afraid. At some point, parents and puppies will go home and then sad little faces will work their way on Daddy and we're going to end up with a puppy. They've always wanted a puppy but allergies have prevented owning one. Once these puppies got here, the allergist treated us and the kids are no longer having problems with dog allergies. Daddy especially has always wanted the kids to have a dog.

Oh dear. ;)


  1. I have absolutely NO self control when it comes to puppies (or kittens, for that matter)... occasionally I donate food/supplies to our local animal shelter and I literally have to dash in, drop and run! LOL I can't resist the cute faces peering out at me, and we already have two cats and a dog. Well, they are a wonderful addition to a family. And try to look at it this way-- pets do help teach responsibility! ;)
