Christmas gift for someone in a wheelchair?

Stroller Blanket
Stretch - Cloversuper-soft, waterproof stroller blanket! Featuring a waterproof shell and a luxurious microplush lining, this easy-to-clean blanket attaches to all types of strollers with four adjustable velcro straps. Elastic bands along the top and bottom help to create a cozy, customized fit.

I am always looking for a place to store my coffee/diet coke when we use the stroller wheelchairs..I think I am going to give this a try this year. At $10.75 it is worth the try!

Also found at TOTSY under "infantino"

We got some blankets along this line last year and use them with the great for all our outdoor adventures these days!

Find these HERE on Totsy under baby/Bumkins for $23!

Autism night before Christmas poem:


Autism Night Before Christmas
by Cindy Waeltermann
Twas the Night Before Christmas
And all through the house
The creatures were stirring
Yes, even the mouse
We tried melatonin
And gave a hot bath
But the holiday jitters
They always distract
The children were finally
All nestled in bed
When nightmares of terror
Ran through my OWN head
Did I get the right gift
The right color
And style
Would there be a tantrum
Or even, maybe, a smile?
Our relatives come
But they don’t understand
The pleasure he gets
Just from flapping his hands.
“He needs discipline,” they say
“Just a well-needed smack,
You must learn to parent…”
And on goes the attack

ADD and the holidays

Happy Holidays - Really!
Candy shared some great print outs with us at our Mom's support meeting this past week. I noted that the had some great resources, especially for the holidays!
The holiday season can be a real challenge for ADHD children. The absence of familiar routines (such as attending school) can throw children with attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities off their stride, especially when you factor in all the events to attend, gifts to select, cards to write, and so on. No wonder they often become sullen or disruptive just when you want them to be happiest.
