    Loved getting to know your boy a little bit more. He is SOOO like KT. Barney was super huge in our house as well as the video games. It tears me up too to see others accepting of our autistic kids, treating them as just as they would one of their peers. It’s even better when you find someone else who’s walked in your shoes and understands the joys, pains and complexity of raising a special needs kid. My honey and I have to read each one of your posts about CJ because it reminds us so much of KT, it gives us a smile and a reason to look back and laugh now.

      I’m glad you get something out of my posts about C.J. There will always be people in the world who treat special needs individuals bad – one kid at school comes to mind, and there were days I thought I might be arrested if someone didn’t make him stop being so mean. Cause if they weren’t going to, I’d have been happy to take on the job myself. But most people are kindhearted, and I always appreciate that. It’s nice to know we’re not alone as we go through our lives. They weren’t what we expected, but they’re still good lives.

      And yes. It’s fun to look back and laugh at some of the challenges that made us want to tear our hair out sometimes. The spitting issue thing in the car was the only amusing thing about that situation. And then there was his thing about dropping food he didn’t like on the floor. I’d finally had enough and told him the next time it happened, he was eating whatever it was regardless. Unfortunately for him, that happened to be a slice of bread and butter … which landed butter side down. It never happened again after that… 😀

    Thank you Kristy for re-blogging this post about your son. I had missed it the first time. As trying as it can be, he sounds adorable. Both of you have seen each other through a lot. In the picture, he looks older than I imagined. Although I don’t know really what age I had in my mind. How old is he now? 🙂

      He certainly can be trying sometimes, that’s for sure, lol. You’ve seen my post about trying to get him to eat healthier … what fun! (not!) He’s not a little boy, that’s for sure, but will likely always be about twelve or fourteen years old, though he sometimes acts like a grumpy middle-aged man. Life ought to be a lot more fun when he hits that stage of life. 😀
