One of the most awesomesauce part of autism? Finding a community of amazing (A. MAY. ZING) parents, autistics and specialists for support. The Internet can be a lousy resource (Paging Dr. Google) but it can also be Wonderfully Helpful. Which is why I am in the midst of updating my Special Needs Resource page. See it up there? Next to “People I stalk” (Sorry about that, by the way)? I am trying to get all my homies listed up there. My posse. My Autism Peeps. So if I’ve forgotten you? PLEASE TO GIVE LINKY. KTHXBAI.
Also! It’s Friday. This can only mean one thing. RYAN GOSLING.
And last but not least…
Isn’t this fun?
See, this other awesomesauce Autism Mom (Sunday Stillwell at Extreme Parenthood) does this Hella Fun spin on that ole Ryan Gosling Meme. I mean, who doesn’t like Ryan Gosling? (BE QUIET. WHO ASKED YOU? Oh, I did? My bad).
Anywho, gotta go click the linky and go click other linky thingies and see more funny Ryan Gosling stuff. Because he’s hot. And saves people from taxis. And builds nice houses. And dammit, that scene in the rain…
But this is the thing I was talking about. Community. Being a part of a large community. People who care for one another. People who help one another. I have IRL peeps and Internet
Stalkers Peeps and it’s awesome when you can find people to go on this journey with you. People who can tell it like it is. Who keep it real. Who pick you up when you are down. Who give you suggestions to help with your kids. You know, takes a village and whatnot.
