Thanks for all the support, donation and the time to put #TeamZay together!!!
I been a very busy worker bee. Between regular life, being a mom and work. I have signed up to be on the “Bring Your Child To Work” committee and snack committee to raise money to fund our program. Administration wanted to see it come back minus the giving us the money to do so, so we are doin bake sales to fund it. Trust its become more of a headache and disrespecting my pockets. But its for a great cause, so why not? The end game is to make sure the kids have fun!
Also, as you guys know its #AutismAwareness month and I have been going in. We did a show on the (podcast) about Autism….working on a part 2. I’m trying to share knowledge on Autism and how effects familys and trying to get people to be more understand and sympathetic. I’m also fundraising for a walk I participated in last year called A Walk For A Difference of course I’m walking for my son #TeamZay but I also am walking for those who are comfortable with sharing their story, every person and their families as well.
On a dating tip, I have enjoy this ride. I’m glad that I get the opportunity to meet someone who is comfortable in his manhood, is respectable and a true gentlemen. He is away on military training and I miss seeing and talking to him.

These three cards… Not just any 3 cards. Let me tell you a little story about them. My coworker brought in some flashcards for my son, since we had the discussion about the PECS program. I tried to introduce them to my son and seemed to want no parts in this. So I took it upon myself to get out the cards I can match to his favorite toys. Which are anything with wheels. I started out with 4 cards, the fourth being his favorite a fire truck. I placed the respective toys with the picture and showed him which pictures they went with. I did this for about an hour, as I said the names he begin to flip the cards over. On the back it had how to pronounce each words also how to introduce them in a sentence. When he flipped them, I said what they were. At times he waited for me to say what it was before he flipped them and vice versa. We did this for almost 2 hours. After while, he was over it.
Well last night after dumping out his cards all over the floor he looked through then and found these 3. I suspected that he couldn’t find the fire truck so he handed me these. I smiled because in my heart, I felt that he did learn them from that one night and he was interested in playing that game again.
I know it seems like baby steps, but to me that meant he was paying attention and remember what I had taught him. This morning, I found him looking at these three for long periods of time. I think we will work on them again tonight. Now if I get him to try to say them.
Share your thoughts.
