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.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween!

It’s beginning to look a lot like... Halloween! Halloween is my favourite time of year. You can dress up as anything and no one judges you, or laughs at you, or thinks you’re weird (well, depending on what your costume is, you may still be weird hehe) Not to mention you get free candy for just dressing up! I’m in!

Every year our family dresses up in some type of theme. It’s usually whatever is “big” that year or something Bryce is into. Last year he really enjoyed playing New Super Mario Bros. on Wii so Bryce dressed up as Mario, Daniel was Luigi, and I was fittingly, Princess Peach. Seeing as the costumes still fit we decided to be the Mario Bros. family again this year as well.

Today there was a local costume parade and early trick or treating event going on so we got decked up and participate. It was a nice little turn out, and it was great practice for Bryce to get ready for Halloween day’s trick or treating. He especially enjoyed a yellow balloon sword the balloon artist made him.

In the evening we decided to carve our pumpkin. Bryce just LOVES pulling out the ooey gooey sticky pumpkin guts...

It was a team effort. Bryce created the pumpkin design, I drew it on the pumpkin, and Daniel carved it out. Here’s our Halloween pumpkin!

Halloween can be a scary experience for any child, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s 12 ways to enjoy Halloween with your child with autism for a pleasant and positive experience.
