What I haven't talked about, though, is the Hubs and how much he rocks. He is NOT a shitty teacher. In fact, he's an awesome teacher. When we first got our diagnosis, he quit his job to stay home and run trials with Child 1 while we waited for ABA to start. And he was good at it, too, he got the boy past that initial resistance phase (where he screams and cries at the idea of being sat down and taught something. Autie moms, I know you hear me) and ready to start working with the professionals. There was no way in hell I could have done that. Not even a chance.
So, right now, I can hear them in the other room, working on some project Child 1 has for school (something about trees, I don't fucking know, who pays attention to these things?) He sounds patient and kind and Child 1 is going along with whatever he's doing. They're making pictures and he's getting the boy to write shit and DAMN that's cool. Fuck yeah, man; you RULE!
He will be rewarded for this. Oh, yes. Yes he will.....
OMG the adorableness... it overwhelms me!!!!!!!!!
