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.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

My little artist

It was 9:30pm and we decided we would go to Walmart and pick up some flowers and plants and do some gardening tomorrow morning because our little garden from last year is overgrowing with weeds. Apparently, the garden portion of the Walmart is closed at 8:00pm (while the rest of the store remains open till 11:00pm... go figure). Not wanting it to be a completely wasted trip, we decided to look around the seasonal section.

We walked past some flower pots and I thought it would be nice to add a couple of them to our garden and I guess Bryce felt the same way because he snatched up a couple right away. We decided to get some paint and let Bryce paint them and they’d be his little plants, so we headed to the crafts section to look for some paints. We found an Acrylic Mini Art Set that had everything we needed to paint some pots.

As soon as we got home we had a late night art session. Bryce was very excited to paint his flower pots. He painted one of them white and the other one blue, and had some touch up help from dad.

The Acrylic Mini Art Set came with a stretched canvas, so I drew a couple of flowers in flower pots on it and Bryce painted it.

One of them white and the other one blue. My little artist.
