Using the tried and true glue/borax/water recipe, we had mad the perfect therapy slime! We could bury small objects in it, Chewy would use his fine motor skills to take them out. The slime was cold and a strange texture, so his sensory issues could be addressed at the same time, not to mention, this slime has no mess! It comes off clean nearly everything it touches (not carpet and some knit clothing, so still be careful around those!).

So many times, when it comes up that Brady is Autistic, people say, “I’m so sorry.” I know it’s just a saying and they really don’t know what to say, but YOU didn’t cause it, so why be sorry for it? I’m not sorry he has it. As many people say, “It is what it is.”

In some ways we are lucky, we’ve had two typically developing children and now with Brady and his delays, we also get to stop and enjoy his milestones that with previous kids we didn’t necessarily celebrate. There are many more things we, parents of ASD kids, get to experience than those of other children, here are my top five.
