Goodbye Monster 😔

The best dog in the whole world died October 19th. Every member of our family claimed her as their best friend. She knew all the secrets, dried all the tears, warmed all the feet, and are all the food when no one was looking.

There is a hole in my heart and our family. Hoping Simba steps into the family rock quickly. 🙏🏼


Cub has a high IQ. He’s above grade level in math and science. Despite these consistent test results, the school says he doesn’t qualify for gifted education but he doesn’t have “enough creativity points.” Autism doesn’t present creativity in the way you or I would recognize it. Autism’s creativity can appear as pattern recognitions, problem solving skills, building and testing, and creating order. For Cub, he creates complex obstacle courses in the backyard. It’s creative as hell and extremely entertaining. Too bad the school can’t see what I see in this kid! 🤔
