Trick or treating

Trick or treating 2012 has come and gone! 2 of my kiddos painted their faces and even wore costumes. I almost cried too see them participate in the festivities. Their sensory issues have never allowed them to get into Halloween. My autistic child didn’t dress up and he sat with a sullen face in his stroller as countless people tdid him how cute he was. I felt so sad for him. My “normal” son age 7 refused to dress up stating it is just a waste of time. We visited about 50 houses and then I took my 7 year old back to the van to wait for my husband and the rest of the crew.

It was a beautiful time and I am so blessed that I was able too spend that time building memories with my children.  My 3 year old didn’t enjoy the actual trick or treating, but he had a terrific time afterward eating a few well deserved treats. 

How does your child( or yourself)  with special needs celebrate “busy holidays”
