So last Saturday two of my brothers & their families came down & we met them at the beach down the street. I was a little nervous about bringing Brady to this particular beach because last year he got overheated & had a complete & total meltdown. Well I figured we'd only stay for as long as he wants & if he's says mama home then we pack up & leave. Well ladies he did fantastic! He played in the water & dug in the sand, next to his cousins. He lasted 2 hours , which was plenty for me. He told me mamma home & we packed up said our good byes & went home. I was so
proud! Until I hear from my mom (who wasn't there) that Brady wasn't having any fun & he wasn't playing with the other kids so we had to leave. Apparently this is how my family saw it. It's amazing that we were all at the same spot & we saw two different scenarios. I saw a wonderful day at the beach with no meltdowns & my family saw a child that doesn't interact & not having fun. Ugh they just don't get it & frankly I get exhausted explaining it.
Don't get me wrong I loved seeing my family but I wish they understood autism a bit more. ..Oh well just had to get that out because I know you guys get it! Thanks for listen !(((hugs)))
P.S. heres a pic. Does he look like he's Not having fun Lol
