O.k.  I wasn’t going to post another of my daughter’s writing. But this is so cute, I couldn’t help myself. I also promise not to make a habit out of it and bore the heck out of you all, lol.  It’s just that I am so thrilled that she is taking seriously to writing down the things that “pop” into her head.  Enclosed is a cute little essay about other kids, meaness, and autism.

So here it is:

Kids Shoudint be mean

My daughter surprised me with this “poem” two days ago. Upon asking if her class worked on a poem that day, she informed me that they didn’t but she “suddenly” felt like writing this poem during her lunch hour.

This is quite something. My daughter does not give up her lunch hour for “anything.”

When I asked her why she decided to write this, she told me that the problems she is currently encountering with her peers at school, inspired her to write this. Unbeknownst to me, her resource room (a class of 10), is experiencing a lot of discrimination by many of their “typical” grade 7 peers. The resource room children have been having to deal with the humiliation of name calling such as: “retards, freaks, and mentals.”

“So what inspired you to actually write this with the Dalai Lama’s name written within the poem?” I asked. “Because I remembered mom, you telling me that the Dalai Lama does not believe in violence. I remembered mom. I wanted to hit a boy real bad who called me mental.” “I bet the Dalai Lama would of walked away like I did hey mom?”

I could not help but smile to myself. Yeah, I thought. If anyone, ANYONE would know what it is to walk away from something, it would have been His Holiness.

Words of wisdom from the heart of a twelve year old autistic girl- I just could not help myself from sharing this with the world.

One Glorious Winter’s Day At The Beach~

It was a cold and very blustery day…


 An Eagle visited in the tree above me…as did the remnances of his previous meal…….(*gross!*)


The surf was restless as was the grasses on the beach…


 My daughter walking on the left and myself posing on the right. I look like crap, but I didn’t care at the time.

Due to the high winds and extreme cold, we lasted only 45 minutes on the trails.  But, it was heaven on earth while it lasted.
