Sensory Overload

This weekend, my Potato was invited to a birthday party at Pump It Up and he just couldn’t get with it. I pretty sure he had was is called a sensory overload. I tried to get him to play but he just wanted me to sit there next to him and watch the other kids play. I kinda of felt bad watching him be unable to enjoy this venue. I tried to engage him with the small balls they had in a basket but he simply put them back and sat back down as if he was looking for a safe area.

As we moved into another room, he sat down on another bench. I finally got him engaged with the floor game:

This was pretty much all he would do. I felt so bad for him but then I thought to myself, he found a way to enjoy himself even if it was away from all the other kids.

I was bothered because I never seen him like that. He just wanted me there next to him. When it was time to leave, he didnt even fight to leave. I believe if he could’ve said ‘Mommy, let’s go he would’ve.”

But I will take this a learning lesson for us both. I will continue to take him places and let him experience different things. I don’t know if we will go back to this place, unless he can handle it.

Catfish… he tried it!

So I debated on whether to post this but I figured why not. Let me give you the back story. Dude sends a friend request… now most know I have a podcast so sometimes I accept randoms (women and men) on a trial basis. So I accept, we have a inbox convo about my podcast, then he ask was I single. I said, yes but dating someone. He left me alone. A few days ago he decides to spark a conversation telling me he intention was to date me and then get married. I could’ve ignore this all together but my spider sense told me it was a catfish or some BS. I had time so I asked did he see the show and he said yea. Told me he is in the military (I doubt that) etc etc. I let him know I’m not interested and that was it. Nope, he send me a message in my inbox… read below

I had way too much time, glad I always follow my instincts!!

Music Mondays: Under The Bridge

Let me tell y’all about the first time I heard this song. I was in my teens and in a very dark place. Do you understand how you can be around a bunch of people and still feel alone?

This song made me cry every time I heard it because I felt the shit out of this. Thankfully, some saw what was going on with me and talked me into letting go of those feelings and writing things out. I still love this song, and sometimes I cry to it, but it shows me how much I have changed and where I was in life at one point.

Summer Camps

The way these summer camps are coming, you’d think I was putting a deposit down on buying a house or car! Lawd!!

Now most of you know my son is autistic so the thought of sending him to any old summer camp is a no go for me. I have to send to a camp suited for his needs.

As a mom, knowing camps fill up fast I have to get a jump start on it and apply for assistance to help pay for camp. Thankfully, my daughter will be working this year a real job. I only have to pay for one, but boy is it expensive.

Looking for camps for children with disabilites is hard enough let alone one that is close. Especially, since I don’t drive and I need to get there quickly.

I realize they need more camps close that have staff that can work with all types of children.

I’m not even gonna say how much this camp is just pray that I get the help I need. Lawd knows I’m not balling like that! 😂😂😂
