As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

9 Balloons

Today we celebrated Bryce’s birthday early and had a party at Crash Crawlys. (His birthday is July 2nd). He was a little overwhelmed with the environment, but after his friends started to arrive, and Daniel went up with him into the tubes, he started to warm up a bit. It was hectic and chaotic at times, but in the end, it was a success and we had a great time.

After two hours of playground time it was time to round up all the children and eat lunch and then eat some cake. I custom ordered my amazing Backyardigans cake, and the bakery did such an awesome job on it.

One of my favourite parts of the day was when it came to the group shot of my little birthday boy with all his friends. They were all wanting to stand next to Bryce for the picture. It was really a beautiful sight. After food and cake came presents. Unfortunately the time allotted for food and cake and presents is a short 45 minutes, so we had to go through the presents a little quick. But Bryce’s friends helped him unwrap some of his gifts. What started as everybody sitting at their spot turned into a swarm of children surrounding Bryce because they were all wanting to help.

Crash Crawlys is such a fun place and you know all the cool people go. We even saw the Kung Fu Panda himself, actor Jack Black, sitting in the lounge area during our time there. Daniel asked Mr. Black if he could get a picture of him with Bryce and he was extremely kind enough to take a moment out of his time for a quick photo. (Thank you so much Mr. Black!) I don’t know if Bryce recognized Mr. Black’s voice, but he was the voice of Lenny in Bryce’s favourite movie Shark Tale.

I really thought that was just the icing on the cake for a great 9th birthday!

Thanks for reading,
