I love my children. Like, LOVE love them. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have days where I totally lose my mind from the exhaustion of raising a child with autism. If you want to know what yesterday was like, I found 7 perfect GIFs to describe yesterday’s autism mom hijinks.
Autism Mom Hijinks: 7 GIFs to Explain it All
If you’re an autism mom, you know what this GIF means. That’s right! We have a runner!!
All I have to say is….WHY?!! But that’s not even the worst of it. Just wait…
So this is much more amusing than actually being spit on, but yeah. That’s basically right.
As an autism mom, you know that no day is complete without screaming and meltdowns.
Oh yeah, and vomit was involved. And do you know the cause of the vomit? My son actually ate a marker lid! I don’t even know how he got it down his throat, honestly, but right around bedtime, he came out of his room and… BLARGH!
Of course, I had this conversation with my husband right before he left to go out of town for a conference…and during his car ride…and after dinner… I was totally losing it!!
But at the end of the day, my son wanted his snuggle time before bed, and we ended the day with snuggles. Like I said. I love my children. Even on the hardest day, the snuggles, the hugs, and the kisses were there. Being an autism mom isn’t all bad, you know? There is so much love. And when I thought back on it, even though I had been spit on, pooped on, screamed at, and run away from, at the end of the day, we just snuggled and he told me how much he loved me.

And let me be clear–after the spit, poop, screams, and unnecessary exercise from all the autism mom hijinks, you appreciate the snuggles more than anything.
