Sometimes it's just simple things that make me sad---like when I hear other moms talk about cub scout meetings and putting their LO in sports. I want that too. But knowing the behavioral issues that DS1 has--even though he tries super hard---is just too much on him and the organizations. I did a "trial" of a t-ball this past summer--- it's for 3 to 5 yr olds and is not competitive at all--they just learn to run bases, swing a bat, etc. And it was a disaster.
The other thing that makes me sad is when DS1 tries so hard to talk to someone and they almost "make fun" of him not knowing his issues. He appears like a normal kid---so they assume at his age he can speak clearly, etc. Although his vocab has improved tremendously the last year---it's far from the "norm". I'm just feeling great that he can actually speak words now and attempt a conversation with people--but they can't understand him and sometimes people make remards TO him like "dude, I don't know what you're saying" --and I feel like saying something but never know what. I just want to cry sometimes.
