The Outsiders

I'm one of the outsiders of the autism blogging world. I don't know I crossed someone a long time ago and you know my opinion and my experiances were not valid because they didn't match theirs. Of course the whole click (yes there are blogging clicks) turned their backs.  Honestly though I never really fit in with them.

Here's the thing I'm OK with it. I'm not the normal blogger. Heck I rarely post. I don't spend hours on my blog or Facebook page. I don't do a lot of things others do. Really just for the fact that others already do it. Do people really want to see the same question on every Facebook page? No. Do they want to hear the same story? I don't think so. So I do what I want and what fits us. I tell our story. I base things on my experiances not experiances on others,  if that ribs people the wrong way fine.

It's not that I don't care, maybe it's because I do. Only it's turned around. I could care less about numbers. Hey trust me they are really nice but telling a story that embarrasses my kid to get more likes. Yeah not going to happen.

My grammar and spelling, yes it needs a lot of help but you know this is a blog. I do my best but it has never been my strong suit.

Yes I am very opionated. If you ask me I will tell you what I think. No I will not back down just because you don't agree. Sure ill listen and look at what you have to say. It's called respect. Now when you start attacking I'm done.

Our family is not perfect. Some people have felt the need to take info they find out about us and use a fake profile to spread it around. Really? That's just lame. I mean what foes that do? Does it make you feel better that you know something that may not put us in the best light. So you tell a one sided very biased story with no facts. Oh and by the way your IP has been traced, I have a pretty good idea who you are. Hey if that's what you gotta do to build yourself up. If your that sad and pathetic that you would attack a family for fun. I really do feel bad for you. You must be a joy to live with.

So basically what I'm saying is, I'm still here. I will keep doing what I do. I will not sink to the rude peoples level.

Calming Glitter Bottle

I have seen this floating around the internet forever. We never really got around to trying it. That was until today. I was at the dollar store and saw glitter glue so I picked some up. It takes minimal supplies and not a lot of work. No crafting ability needed. (Big plus for me). So here are the directions.

Glitter Glue (I used two small bottles from the dollar store but you could use one large as well)
Clear Glue (This I picked up from the grocery store for 99 cents)
loose glitter (We had some loose glitter that came with something so we just used what we had)
Water Bottle (I took one of husbands used large bottles)
Super Glue (Trust me glue the lid down or you will be sorry, Unless you like glitter floors)

1) Fill bottle halfway with warm water. Warm water helps dissolve the glue a little.

2) Add your Glitter Glue.

3)Add loose Glitter.

4) Add water until bottle is 3\4 full.

5) Add Clear Glue a little at a time. More glue = settles slower. More water = settles faster.

6) Once the glitter settles at your desired spread. Fill with water. Leave some air at the top.
Shaking it to dissolve the glue

7) Super Glue the lid on.

8) That's all your done.

We did more clear glue so the glitter does not settle. Lucy just likes watching the glitter move around but not the settling so much. She also had some stickers laying around, so she used one for decoration.
