Going to my 1st ASD support group meeting tonight. My DH is out of town so I am going solo. It is more of a mother warriors type group so it should be interesting. I really hope that I don't cry. I took Nathan for his first hair cut since we learned about his autism. The last time I was there, I was convinced he was just delayed. So you know how your hair dresser listens to everything you say...well of course I broke down into tears. Oh, I so hope I can keep it togher tonight at the support group.

We are eligible for Respite care, so someone from that agency is coming to sit. I'm really happy that I don't have to pay for a sitter but nervous as heck to have someone new taking care of the kids.

And tomorrow I am taking all 3 kids and the dog five hours across the state all by myself. I need to take my mini van to my parents home town so that my dad can do a bunch of repair work on it. I'm guessing that the next several days will be very challenging for me. Wish me luck!

I hope it goes well tonight. I am going to my first support group on Tuesday. I have never been able to before. If you need to cry at the meeting just cry. Nothing to ashamed of. I still have my times.

I loved the support meeting, I loved the ladies. I had to leave early because I needed to get back for the sitter but it was so worth it and I didn't cry a drop.

Oh my the road trip was so rough. Me, the 3 kids and the dog in the car for almost 8 hours with a lot of little stops and one stop for lunch. It was the stupidest and bravest thing I ever did. Nathan freaked out a little in the car but so did everyone else because we were stuck in there so long. He did really well transitioning to Grandma and Grandpas house and all 3 slept well in their pack n plays. So now my dad will fix my car and back on the road Wednesday morning.

I am so happy to hear that everything went so well. My first support meeting I was scared I would cry too. It was only a month after the diagnosis but it was the best thing I have ever done. Being able to talk face to face is so great.

I am glad the support group went well. You are brave for driving 8 hours with 3 kids and a dog. Not sure I could do that.
