Do you ever look at your kid and think:
I want to wrap you in tin foil, bake you in the oven at 425 degrees for 45 minutes, and then eat you with butter, sour cream, and chives…
No? While it’s a Modest Proposal to joke about eating children, this site isn’t about cannibalism.
My Potato was diagnosed with severe nonverbal autism when he was two years old. They say that 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism in the United States. With numbers that high, I assumed the internet was full of lifestyle information for autism parents.
I found nothing.

I know that raising a child with autism is challenging but does that mean our lives have to suck?
Does that mean we have to cry and feel ashamed every time some jackass at the supermarket has to rub his nose in our business?
We can have a happy, fun, and peaceful life BECAUSE we raise children with autism.
Autism is pretty extraordinary and beautiful.
