trying to be mom more and less thinking like therapist/autism advocate
when you have a child with autism, so much time is spent trying to help child along the path - which is great - but time passes and you wonder what time you missed just being mom
daughter doing great, time well spent with early intervention, so now time for me to be mom more
when i catch myself thinking about therapy mom, i stop and play instead, i can think about autism when she is asleep, i can then allow myself to read up on new treatments and approaches, but when she is awake, i have learned so much in last year i can play-have it fun and also it is learning, it is now engrained in me
so i can be mom more
does this make sense??
