What do you do when your bucket overfloweth?

There are days when I wish I could just ask him why he needs so many treasures for comfort -- and him to be able to communicate to me in a way that I can understand...

Autism is not an excuse…

When Apollo uses his "words", and another 4 year old child disregards his words... an incident happens, accusations are made, and Apollo's not verbal enough to state what did or did not transpire.

Is he seriously walking around with a pacifier in his mouth?

Unfortunately, society only accepts pacifier usage up until age 1; after that, parents are expected to pitch-the-paci in the garbage, kids are expected to have a smooth transition to paci-free life, and everyone is supposed to live happily-ever-after from that moment forward... right?!
