It is amazing how the changing of one small thing can destroy a holiday. The catalyst this Easter holiday began last Tuesday. My brother and his wife came to eat fajitas. He timidly requested that we change our routine of having Easter at my mom's and have it instead at his house. Let me briefly describe his house. Apple cinnamon mixed with dog pee aroma filled landfill. So my husband and I offered our services to help them clean their house on Saturday. We spend from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm cleaning. My daughter was exhausted! She was having an uncontrollable fit! So by 4:30 she was asleep. She slept until midnight and then woke up raring to go. Gary got her to sleep again by 2 am but then she was awake for good by 4 am. Needless to say by the time we were getting ready Sunday morning to leave to go eat lunch at my brother's, she was beyond tired again. Another fit. We ended up canceling Easter. Good thing I made a ham and some black eyed peas. The rest of the evening I cried and cried b/c the day sucked so bad! I get so tired of all the fits. I feel so overwhelmed. Will she ever mature out of this 2 year old phase, I mean she's about to be 5 for Peet's sake! Autism sucks!! So then my parents come over and I cried to my mom some more to which she responded that I need antidepressants. I just don't know what to do about my Bean. So today we are planning on faking Easter so that I can have some pictures.
