This is how the advice sounds when I’m exasperated. It’s not fair at all, because one of the things about Asperger’s for my kids is that it makes the path from idea to vocal cord very cumbersome indeed, and one of those concepts that I have to explain regularly is, “The words in your heart don’t reach my ears if you don’t use your mouth.” But it’s been a “Use your words” kind of weekend around here, and so I give you the advice I all but shouted to my children earlier today. (Parenting fail.)
Thanks for letting me vent, Trifecta. Hey, by the way, there’s a new kid in town over there. OK, she’s really not new. She’s been posting some fabulous writing for quite awhile now. But Draug has joined the editorial team with Lisa and Joules, and I find that to be kickass awesometastic.
