Post 40 Gone Fishing

Fishing happens to be one of my favorite past times. I spent a lot of time as a child going fishing with my father, grandfather, and uncles. We spent time bonding and really enjoying time together no matter where we went fishing. We were Saltwater fishermen, and my family even had a boat for aContinue reading “Post 40 Gone Fishing”

Post 39 The Gift From God That Saved Us

There was a time a few years ago when we were at our lowest point, in regards to Greyson that is. He was probably about two and a half and his meltdowns were intensifying, in both duration and severity. I would get calls from Alex while I was working, and she was crying because ofContinue reading “Post 39 The Gift From God That Saved Us”

Post 38 The Grind

The majority of our lives are filled with so much joy and happiness it is remarkable, it even seems unbelievable at times. But other times life can feel completely overwhelming. We have our challenges and problems like any normal family does. However, when you add a child with ASD into the equation it can getContinue reading “Post 38 The Grind”

Post 37 Meltdowns Can Be So Challenging and Demoralizing

We have recently been dealing with some regressions. This regression is focused around Greyson’s challenging behaviors, in particular his meltdowns. It is a huge challenge for me as his father. It is really tough to see a regression and I know there are part of Autism Spectrum Disorder, but it is still difficult to dealContinue reading “Post 37 Meltdowns Can Be So Challenging and Demoralizing”

Post 36 Our New Baby Savenah Finally Comes Home 

The past month has felt like a lifetime! It was only a month ago that we decided to get another dog and choose our beautiful Savenah.

Post 35 The Hardest Job Life Has To Offer

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs anyone can undertake in life. However, it is probably the most rewarding experience life has to offer. Isn’t it ironic, how these two realities are both true and yet are at complete opposite ends of the spectrum, and life parenting a child with Autism makes bothContinue reading “Post 35 The Hardest Job Life Has To Offer”

Post 34 Changes

It is an interesting time right now with our family. A time of transition, progress and growth. We have been stuck in one place for a long, long time. In fact for about 4 years now we have been circling almost like a bird of prey. It has been a frustrating time in many differentContinue reading “Post 34 Changes”

Post 33 Back At It

We are back into ABA Therapy again. After a full month off. We had the holidays off and then our RBT had COVID and then we had contact with someone with COVID. So we had to take all that time off. I had mixed emotions about it. I was happy in some ways that weContinue reading “Post 33 Back At It”

Post 32 Brillant

Greyson is incredibly intelligent. Unlike most kids, he spends most of his time learning. Watching educational videos on YouTube Kids. We always allow him to watch because it is educational. If it wasn’t we would probably put a much stricter limit on his electronic usage.  I have to say I am so glad that weContinue reading “Post 32 Brillant”

Post 31 My Shadow

It has been an interesting few weeks here at the Guthreau house. We just wrapped up Christmas and New Year’s last weekend and we all had a wonderful time. Greyson enjoyed the Holiday’s, just like most kids would. He interacted with everyone really well and he really participated in Christmas at a whole new level.Continue reading “Post 31 My Shadow”
