Living with and raising an ADHD Autistic Child is hard.
Life Stuck In Fast Forward

Like Curious George discovering new things and fiddling with old, you go through life, Taking things apart and scattering the pieces here and there. Putting books in the freezer and clothes in the food pantry. Where the food went, Lord only knows.

You remind me of a living tape recorder going through life stuck in fast forward in a blur of activity. Trying to accomplish many things at once and completing none, needing constant reminders and coaxing. Your life is full of multi-colored lights and muffled sounds moving way too fast.

You need to slow down some and put your life on pause sometime. Savor the things in life and fill your senses. There are things to savor like the smell, texture and beauty of a flower, observing the life of a busy insect. If you keep your life in order, you will be able to find things. Your room would not look like a tornado hit it.

Maybe you could even put your life on stop and get some rest. Speaking like Mickey Mouse, speaking so quickly I have to ask you to repeat what you said. Whirling and Spinning like Taz and acting like Speedy Gonzalez without the accent.

Slow down some-and just be my little boy today.
