To the parent that just found out their child is on the Autism spectrum

To the parent that just found out their child is on the spectrum, it isn't your fault and it's nothing you have done. Believe me I know how heartbreaking it is to find out your little bundle of joy isn't "progressing" or "meeting their milestones" like everyone else's child. Furthermore, not understanding how this could happen because "my child doesn't look Autistic". The reality is that Autism DOES NOT have a face, it's different in every single person, and unfortunately is an invisible disability.

What is it with humans and multiple breeding? Who decided it was okay to go forth and have more than one child? Jesus was an only child (I had to Google that), I was an only child and I’m pretty sure there are a few others out there too.

Let me just rattle off an example of a day in the life of a mum. Well, me. This is a day in the life of me and I'm a stay at home mum so I'm just going to throw it out there and say that this could probably cover a lot of other mums (the ones I've spoken to, at least). My day starts when my baby wakes up, which is usually at the same time my partner gets up for work (6:15am) because my two-year-old comes into our bed every night so his alarm usually wakes her too....

Mums On Meds

I remember when I was pregnant my Mum said to my baby daddy "you keep an eye on her and watch out for signs of depression because we didn't know what that was back in the day". I felt sad for Mum thinking that she might have struggled with post partum life without having an explanation for why she felt the way we did. We've got it a bit easier these days with the knowledge that depression and anxiety are actual real things that can fuck with us. But some times it can be hard to acknowledge what we're feeling...
