I just like flamingos.

Autism Awareness Day

It’s almost the middle of the Easter holidays and I have my hands very full with a very lively Pwd. I thought there’d be no chance of getting anything out but then this happened:

If you’ll remember, we don’t do awareness in the O’C household. Blue light bulbs are apt for groups who think of Autism as an emergency or a disaster and for gawpers who just want to rubber neck and tut tut then┬ámove on to the next flaccid “awareness” campaign. For us, we wanted to stand with Autistic people so we walked in red. Red shoes for me, red top for dad and, the little man of the moment, the Pwd. It’s been a while. He’s done some growing.

    Great post. I accidentally wore blue today without thinking. Time to go change my outfit.

      I tried to put a red top on the dog but he was having none of it!
