Preschool Fears

As you may know my 3 year old son has a form of Autism. I am fortunate that our school system has a fantastic early childhood program that we are a part of in addition to our regular therapy. We currently go to a toddler class one day a week and he gets to play with peers while mommies hang out in next room for some adult time. For me its tough to not be with him every moment it might only be an hour and there is a 2 way mirror so i can see him but for some reason i still worry. Keep in mind he for the most part is just fine and probably doesn't notice my absence he loves school!   So as I adjust to this new separation we look ahead to preschool.  This is gonna be a biggie for me. He will not be old enough for the "real" preschool till next fall so he will be joining the special education program to ready him for school with the hopes that he will be able to adjust to the surroundings and transition with no problems next year. For anyone who is not familiar with Autism most kids( all though not all because with Autism every kid is so different) Are very bright. This is the case with my son. He is very smart more than his age he just can't do the day to day routine tasks , moving from one activity to the next, those little life skills we all take for granted. I worry about the time apart i will be leaving alone for a few hours 2 days a week. It's almost too much for me to think about. I know know every parent goes thru this even if your child doesn't have special opportunities. I will admit that he hasn't been alone with anyone other than grandma or daddy since he was 6 months old.  So it is time to take a step from the nest and hopefully mommy will be OK  :)

Scary Wasps!

AHHH! Wasps!! For the last 3 days some how wasps have been getting into my house! I have heroically killed  killed 7 of them. I can see them flying into the attic thru a vent so I'm pretty sure there is a nest in my attic but there are no local exterminators who will come out to get rid of them so we must rid them ourselves. I wish i knew where they were coming into my main house from it is very scary to be sitting on the couch and the baby yells "mommy bug!!" And not i have to avoid it as it does that creepy swoop as it bobs the ceiling with its dangly legs eewww. Can u tell i don't like them. I will update you when and how they get gone once i can coerce my just as scared hubby to climb up to roof and check out the situation and spray the nest, fingers crossed.

Very embarrassing

So i set up my Facebook page  for my blog many months ago and went along my way to promote and get followers only to be asked today by a friend of mine if i had noticed that i had spelled Minnesota wrong? Much to my dismay and embarrassment i had not! and no one else had noticed or thought to bring it to my attention yet. I am sad to say that spelling is by far not one of my strong suits and i am thankful every day for spell check. But as i looked into changing my name i was alarmed to find that u can not change your fan page once you hit 100 fans!! So i had the tough decision of can i live with this? Or do i "get rid of" 40 fans so i can fix my horrible error. Well i decided that i needed to have a professional looking page so i randomly chose 40 hard earned fans to dismiss in hopes they will find their way back. I guess i need to hit up some FB hops this week end :( I'm sorry if you were one of the 40 and please know it was not personal just an attempt to save face lol.
