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.

Eating Habits

It was a warm night tonight, and we were in the mood for ice cream. We all drove to Dairy Queen and I got my favourite, a Peanut Buster Parfait with no peanuts, and got Bryce what I thought was something he’d enjoy, a chocolate dipped cone. When the cashier handed us our ice cream, Bryce said, “No cone, no.” and grabbed my ice cream instead.

We have discovered as of late, that all we knew about Bryce and his eating habits have changed. A child who would request nothing but French fries and ketchup when we were at a sit-down restaurant, now was asking for burgers, salads, and soups too. Whenever we ordered pizza we’d always order a side of some sort because he would never eat the pizza, and just the other day, he ate the pizza.

Our meals have always revolved around what we knew Bryce liked, or a second meal was made just for him if we were making something we liked, and knew he didn’t. I find that we eat a lot of chicken because that is one thing that we all can agree on. I’m hoping that when we are strictly on the GFCF diet alone, that we all can sit down and enjoy the same meal together.

Thanks for reading,
