Living with Autism…the child, the parent and the friend

             wp2445843 Autism Spectrum Disorderwp2445843
   Welcome to my world of Autism. This is my story told through my eyes as a parent of a child on the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
   My name is LaFrieda Smith and this is my son Devon Alexander Smith.  He is now 18 years old and he is one of the most extraordinary people you will ever meet.  By looking at him, you would not be able to tell that he has a disorder but from the time he was 6 months old we knew he was special.  He has been diagnosed with a Spectrum Disorder, mental retardation with an IQ in the 50’s and is a high-functioning Autistic Teen.

53469049_2533095803399639_3952813996289032192_n10481401_816349731740930_8741544412607340280_n52914046_2533096433399576_6057091750760022016_n52985892_2533095843399635_3129789655537418240_n

As a Child:
  When he was 6 months old, I started to notice that he was not able to keep up with his developmental chart with growth and milestones.  He sat up at and crawled at 8 months old and started walking at 13 months.  He developed a way of walking on his tipsy-toes and didn’t start to run until he was 2 years old.  With Autism, as a child, he would get frustrated with not being able to communicate with us..his speech was delayed to 5 years old…lots of babbling. He showed signs of anxiety almost everyday when he would have to learn new things.  A child with Autism is all about routine and keeping things in order.  When we would change his feeding schedule or would be somewhere he wouldn’t know where he was, he would cry alot.
As a Parent:
   When he had his 2-year check-up, I told the doctor about some of the things I was seeing.  I had an older son who was 2 years older and he did not seem to have any of the same concerns.  The doctor referred us to neurologist where they did some hearing, psychological, and senses testing and they diagnosed him with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  As a parent, you are confused and blame yourself for your child having a handicap or illness but we shouldn’t, every child is special in their own way and having limitations doesn’t make them any less special.  In the early 2000’s, Autism wasn’t very popular and people really didn’t know what this was so I took it upon myself to research it and make adjustments to my daily routine to help my son get better.  As he grew, we started seeing that not only does this disorder affect their brain processing but it also interferes with their internal organs.  One of the most common things is the processing of Dairy and Wheat.  Devon was not able to tolerate dairy and at times and wheat would cause stomach issues.

Substitutions had to be made even with products containing Gluten.  Dairy, Wheat and Gluten affected how he behaved and made his processing slow down so knowing this we replaced milk with orange juice, we went wheat-free, cereal was dry, no cheese and Popsicle instead of ice cream. In addition to being allergic to these, when he got older we had him tested for other allergens and they found outdoor, pet and other food sources.  He will always have to check labels for garlic powder and hazelnuts along with staying away from grass and all trees here in Florida.  He suffered for years with this and it is one of the many things you have to watch for in their behavior.

As a friend,

friendship-clipart-school-friends

   Through-out his school years, it was very difficult for him to make friends with the language difficulty.  He is in Special-Education classes, takes speech therapy and has been one of the most popular kids in his schools.  Straight A student, well-behaved, and loves his teachers.  So much, he used to sit with them all the time at lunch because he was non-sociable with everyone.  In his High School years it changed, he started being more vocal about being friends with others who share his interest.  He loves football, wrestling, and cooking.  Most of the time he is a loner even at home sometimes.  It is not that he doesn’t like others or us, he prefers to be by himself and take his imagination places.  He tells us all the the time he wants a girlfriend and we tell him…”In time it will come, be patient”.

As a Child:
   Understanding his feeling growing up as teenager…why he can’t do what others do as a grown man.  Having feelings for others, being angry is common. Sense of time is lost, he is unable to figure out when something really happened.  Using phrases like, “happened last year” or “went last week” .  The time frame really was years ago or 2 days ago.  We are his time machine.  I suggested to him that he keep a calendar on his wall so he knows the days of the week and month.  As a grown man we decided that he get out there and get a job.   He got a job 3 years ago and has done exceptional at it.  He keeps his scheduled times of work on his phone and calendar along with his work-out schedules.  Being organized from day to day keeps him from being confused about what to do daily.

20190706_122919[1]

As a Parent:
   Keeping him safe when crossing the road to making sure he doesn’t lose his money out of his wallet out in the world. Most children and adults with Autism are unaware of their surrounding when they are interacting and existing in the world. Devon has always been taught to look both ways before crossing the street since he was old enough to understand.  My son has always looked at the ground to avoid eye to eye contact with others which was very scary for us.  He is about to get his driving permit and we are excited for him to get it but worried about how he will do on the road. Kids with Autism avoid eye-contact. We always thought that in school, children should be not only taught the essentials for life but also the real-life survival skills needed to get them through their adult life along with the parents help.  Examples of this: How to grocery shop, cross the street without getting hit, counting money, holding a job and opening up a bank account.  Now that Devon works a mile from his house, he has been able to learn how to cross the streets properly.  Something else that came up after the job, was his ability to save money and have a bank account.  He is doing well with it and is even grocery shopping on his own watching pricing and labels with Walmart Pickup.  He was so excited to do it, it shows him his independence, which is very important for those with this disorder or any handicap.

As a Friend:
   As I said earlier, Devon is one of the most popular guys at his High School along with my other two teens.  He doesn’t go outside of school and hang out with these students, he keeps his circle small to protect himself-which is something most people do to keep from getting hurt or involved in bad things.  We are his friends for now and hopefully as he gets older he will meet some great people along the way when he gets more interests and goes deeper into adulthood.
As a Parent:
   Realizing that my teen may have difficulties in life due to his disability, has made me look at the world a little differently.  I found out alot about myself and some of the things that are flawed in myself,  watching my son learn things at a slower rate than others.  He has excelled at everything he has tried such as cooking, playing little league sports, working a job and electronics.  He has impressed me greatly on how powerful his mind works and how he can notice certain things an average person wouldn’t.  We all have things that makes us different and we must embrace them instead of hiding behind them.  If my son Devon can ask a girl out on a date or talk to a girl and carry on a conversation, we should be able to face our fears and difficulties.  Devon is going to be graduating High School May 2020 and is at the top of his class, We are so proud of him.

Tattoos…a storybook written for the body

  Tattoos..a story written for every individual like an autobiography published that explains the road traveled by most with failures, accomplishments, tragedies, life lessons learned and thing to be proud of expressed on the body.  Most of us have our story hidden but the rest of us want people to know what we have gone through.  In many religions, it is sacred to deface the body of a human with any kind of piercings or tattoos but why deprive one of such an opportunity to express themselves.
Text_Over_Photo1559711337917[1]     I saw a photo of a lady who wanted to take her story and give it a happy ending.  Her life consisted of being sad, covering up the scars turned her from a victim to a survivor…..
   In another life, people write down who they place their heart and soul with….then it gets broken, that story gets told through love quotes and a broken heart for the end…..
   Proud parents who cherish their children and want to celebrate the day they were born with names and dates over and over again..on the other side the sad soul who lost their love and life in one moment, writing numbers and symbols in remembrance….
   Believing in your country and what it stands for while being proud of who you are …making your mark on the world with being part of history, celebrating your freedom…..
   Reliving a moment in your life that you thought you would never achieve and look on as others admire your accomplishment no matter how big or small….. 
   Rooting for your favorite team and supporting them with your dedication to their organization….or keeping with your family markings for generations to come…..
  Admiring your environment and loving the way the Earth births beautiful things so you want to see this on you day after day……
These are some of the ways to write your story for the world….this is My Storybook.

My name is LaFrieda and I am a mom of three, wife and my family is the love of my life.  I currently have 5 tattoos on my body representative of me living my life.  My left arm has my very first tattoo of my three kids names in a heart designed by me.  My second on the right leg has a tigers face on it, representing my love for animals with my children’s names under it.  My third on the left leg has another full body tiger helping me go down a road to greatness in my life.  My fourth on the right arm, success in graduating from college at 38 years old while working a full-time job and taking care of a family and last, the one on my left thigh, begun my journey to live life to the fullest despite the failures I had in life…I would get better and stronger after devastation.   Right now I am currently working on my 6th story for my right thigh…I am thinking it will have something to do with my love for music.

I am trying to decide between these two…let me know which one would be nice on my right thigh…

I sketched both of these myself…I just can’t decide which one to go with.  Which one A or B?

My weekend as a Queen…trip to New York City

Image result for free images of new york city skyline

New York City...home of the Yankees, Statue of Liberty and the birthplace of rhythm and blues- Harlem.

   This was my second visit to New York.  I visited in December 2017 with my beautiful daughter Briana, who celebrated my birthday with me and got to experience for the first time New York city in the winter time.

 

  I left for New York on May 24, 2019 on Delta airlines, which there was a delay in take-off due to a gasket that needed to be replaced.  These planes come equip with in-flight movie and television selections and also complimentary drinks and snack of your choice.  I was able to capture the CitiField  baseball field when landing in New York.

 

When I arrived, I had to call my hotel for a shuttle, which was very convenient for me not having a car.  I stayed at the Extended Stay Suites in Queens.  It was located in flushing and the hotel was very nice. I didn’t get to do sites because of the distance, if I did get around it was Lyft and ordering through Grub Hub.  I f you ever stay in New York..stay in the city..it is less expensive and you can travel by subway like me and my daughter did the first time.

The next day, I was getting ready for the highlight of my trip..The Valerie’s Women’s Empowerment Group 1 year anniversary Gala!!  It was exciting to meet so many women who share the same heart as I do for others.  This group has been apart of my daily life since last year and the women who made it all possible and getting such incredible women together is Valerie Padilla.  She started this group May 25, 2018 and wanted to make a difference not only in women’s lives but help those in need in her community.  Check out my post in Getting Real section called ”You are a Queen today and everyday…women-empowering-each-other-2019″

 

  I had such a great night with all these ladies.  Everything was so elegant and beautifully done.  We all ate, drank, cried, danced, laughed and hugged alot.  I was so overwhelmed by how much everyone loved one another in sisterhood and lifted each other with touching speeches and memorable moments.

A heartfelt moment where I hadn’t even got out my seat and I started crying…..

 

Loving yourself and others unconditionally…Priceless” L.S

  Valerie gave out many trophies to her Queens that were close to her heart and this is me receiving mine for being that women who inspires her and continues to do wonderful things for others. It is truly amazing how self-less she is and how many lives she’s touched

The Guest of honor Queen Valerie wears many hats but she wore her crown that night….

 

She is a dedicated mom, wife, sister, best friend.

   In leaving the party, I had some difficult getting my Lyft driver to pick me up in front of my address…which I couldn’t figure out for the life of me but I had these two ladies that helped me out tremendously and I thank them so much!! That is what women supporting each other is all about.

 

  The next day I was so tired but nothing is going to stop me from coming back.  I am so looking forward to what is next on journey…and the story is to be continued…..

   Okay so…no this is not my bedroom but I am showing you this because like this simple bedroom, me and my husband don’t need alot.  We have just recently gotten rid of most of our furniture in our bedroom and found that it is so much more space to spread out.     Anyway, this is the scene of where we had our May family meeting in.  We decided to make it informal this time and it was a lot shorter.  

Where we left off last month was that my daughter received the Employee of the Month!!

20190604_205353[1]

Questions from Mrs. Ski

  1. Why do you love blogging?  I love to write about my experiences and share them with the world.  I believe that if one writes down in words and express their feelings about things, share ideas and go on adventures with others, it is very healthy for the mind and soul.
  2. What is your favorite hobby besides blogging?  I love to travel.  Wherever the wind wants to take me to I try to go.  I like experiencing new things and meeting different people and cultures.  I wish I had unlimited funds but hey you only have one life…live it up!!
  3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?  Well, right now I am working on finally using my passport and travel to Puerto Rico with a group of wonderful ladies.  This will be my 1st time but if I wanted to just go on vacay for a week all-inclusive Hawaii for me!!
  4. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog?  I am a mom of three teens, wife and blogger full-time.  I recently retired after 23 years of retail after being disabled.  So I take care of my family and travel when I can to see the states.  My blog was inspired by my family of 5.  We are such a close family, not to say we don’t have our battles but I tend to write alot about our entertainment such as music, movies, sports in Florida and common everyday things that make me so proud of my family.  I also feature bloggers and entrepreneurs to add a business side to my blog to inspire others who want to find their passion.
  5. What is your favorite season?  Since I live here in Florida, we only have one season HOT….lol  What I can tell you is that because my wedding anniversary is in April, I love Spring…its the season of love for me.
  6. How often do you post in your blog?  I usually go in spurts and pull an all-niter where I will schedule at least 4-5 new posts per month depending on what is happening that month.  This week I worked on 5 posts and that will probably be it until the end of the month.
  7. Do you love blogging?  Most definitely!! I am avid in writing out my experiences and love to share with people.  I especially love when I post something that sets a light bulb off in someone’s head or makes them feel special and inspired after reading it.
  8. What is your favorite type of food?  I don’t have a favorite type but I am very picky when it comes to what goes in my mouth.  No room temperature, No legs on it or feet, Not the color of puke and it has to be neat on my plate otherwise I don’t even give it a second look.
  9. What got you started blogging?  A couple years ago I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and I needed an outlet to give myself a purpose for getting up in the morning.  I’ve had alot of family tragedies over the past few years and this seemed to make me happy.  Today, I am doing so much better coping and my blog pieces have inspired and I have made countless amount of people happy.
  10. How did you choose your blog name?  Well, my blog is inspired by family entertainment so I knew that had to be in it.  Next, the topics I talked about had to have music and movies in it.  I had to come up with another M to describe my life of excitement and chaos at the same time so I came up with  M-music, M-movies and M-madness of Family Entertainment.
  11. What is your least favorite chore?  I do not like Nagging.  It seems that all we do daily is tell people to do the same thing over and over and they act like they are listening.  I have to add that to tasks to do daily on top of chores so I count that as a chore.

My life as a mom…making it easier on myself

Image result for free images of moms working hardRelated imageRelated image

  Moms lets face it we have way too much to do everyday and we think there is no way to make it easier…actually, I have found alot of ways to make things easier on myself.  Meet me and my teens…

P10_1557919910904

  My kids are now teens and I thought it would be easier as they got older…nope…it just gets more difficult to communicate to your family that you need help.  I have a disability, so everything I do daily centers around making sure that things get taken care of around the house.  Every once and awhile, my teens amaze me and do something without asking.  I love being a mom but I am so tired all the time.
   I am getting a lot of request from moms about how I come up with all these ideas to make things simpler in my household.  So I am going to share with you 5 tips on how I manage my daily maintenance with 5 grown people in the house….
  • Tip #1  Everyone knows that laundry is a pain and if you could do less of it you would, right? Everyday, I heard from the kids “Where are all the towels?” or “Every time I go to wash up there are no towels?”  Someone would be assigned to them and wouldn’t do them so I got frustrated with them using our whole inventory of 15 towels in one day so I reduced everyone to a lovely beach towel cloths.  My husband loves Star Trek so special ordered it, I have the Tiger because I love them, Briana has a doggy because she loves animals, Devon loves wrestling so I special ordered the All-stars WWE and Jr. has the Patriots, which is his favorite team.  These do not absorb water and can be reused over and over until they are dirty.  We only do the wash cloths and hand towels which is so much better.FB_IMG_1558746059035
  • Tip #2 Writing notes around the house…very important!!  For some reason, saying it and writing it gets two different results.  From air conditioner settings, to trash and recycle to driver safety.  We are recycling now to use less trash bags and it saves a lot of money.  If anyone has teen drivers, the S.M.I.T.H method will help in guiding them in checking the right things when getting in the car.  I came up with this when my oldest started driving 5 years ago and now I use it for my daughter.FB_IMG_155874606473120190523_112835[1]
  • Tip #3  Cleaning supplies have gone down to bare essentials.  I have found that the chemicals are too toxic to me, pets and the environment, so I only use Vinegar, Water and for tough stains baking soda.  To clean messes off counters we use the towels given to us from the Florida Tropics soccer game we go to.  Make sure you keep Clorox wipes to clean off phones since they have more germs than a toilet seat.FB_IMG_1558746069653
  • Tip #4  Kitchen cabinet organization is a must!  I had to redo all the cabinets because I could never find anything.  It helps when putting groceries away.FB_IMG_1558746074875
  • Tip #5  Last but not least…please have monthly family meetings.  We set up who does chores and talk about what is going on the next month.  Communication is important in a house with many people, always include the children’s input.  Chore charts for reminders and schedule times for work and activities are marked down.FB_IMG_1558746080218

Awards night with fellow Bloggers…2019

Congratulations to MMMoffamilyentertainment for being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!!!

   I am so honored to receive this nomination from a fellow blogger of mine who I have just recently connected to in the past few weeks. They have received the Liebster Award, Blogger Recognition Award and the Sunshine Bloggers Award twice.  This particular blogger I met in a group of other inspiring bloggers and loved how they posted about things that inspire them, experiences they had and giving back to their fellow bloggers by featuring them as guest bloggers who have positive messages to share with readers. This person is Charli Dee.  Check out her story at Life With Charli

Questions from Charli Dee

  1. Which of your blog post is your favorite?     “The cover comes off…no more filters”  I wrote about being able to be free from having to look the way society expected me to and teaching my daughter the same.
  2. What is your favorite color?    My favorite color is Black or Red, especially when I am picking out a nice car.  I love the shine it has.
  3. What is your favorite food?  I don’t have a particular favorite because I love all food but I do have a couple rules before eating it- it has to be hot, not spicy, not moving and look good on the plate, presentation is key.
  4. Do you have a secret talent?  I recently found out that I am really good at creating ideas in my head while I sleep.  Most of my blog posts come after I have been dreaming.  I probably could write a book but I wanted to start my hand in blogging first to see how it goes..lol
  5. Which season(Spring, Winter, Summer, Fall) is your favorite?   So, I live in Florida and basically we have 3 seasons-Hot, Very Hot and Don’t Even Bother Coming Out Hot..but when I lived in my hometown Cleveland, Ohio for 35 years, I loved the Spring with fresh flowers and it was a great time to clean inside and outside of your house.
  6. What song would be your theme or anthem?  My current theme song is “I will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor.  I have been through so much in the last 6 years that I am a survivor.
  7. Who is your favorite celebrity?  Surprisingly, I don’t have one.  I am all about knowing the real person not the character they play on t.v. so I really can’t say that I love any celebrity.
  8. Do you have a favorite book?  Right now, I am trying to get into reading but can’t seem to find the time or me time for that matter to get it done.  I have 3 teens and a husband who take up most of my time. I write in my blog early in the mornings and that’s about all the time I have.
  9. Do you have a favorite movie?  Well, I actually have 3- Saturday Night Fever, Jackie Brown and Goodfellas.  I can watch these over and over and never get tired of them.
  10. Do you have a t.v. show you’re binging on right now?  I think if I can remember a couple weeks back, I watched the new show “The Enemy Within”  This is a must see!!
  11. What is the one thing you love most about blogging?  I love being able to share my life with others through my eyes.  Writing about things that are on my mind and being able to share  with others what inspires me about them.Related image
