Should I Stay Or Should I Go.


*Summoning Joe Strummer*

I started this blog to document the trials and tribulations regarding Jaysen's adventures in our public school district. Read: I needed a paper trail.

Seeing as that doesn't necessarily  apply  anymore, I've grappled with the decision to either end Le Chateau de Quirk, or to morph it into a snazzier, more updated (don't worry, it would still be plenty dramatastic because, well, hi.) blog, with current issues and stories.

I mean, my family IS still hella quirky...

Big things

I know I haven't been on here. I suck. But life is keeping me busy in the most amazing ways.

We just returned from a much needed vacation in Florida, and in 2 days, I get to marry my best friend. I am a lucky girl indeed. ❤️

Newsflash.



THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIAL AUTISM.


Please, stop.


No Title is a Good Title.

So here we are, a few weeks into the new school year.

Jaysen is still having a little bit of a rough time, but he usually doesn't settle in until mid-October anyway. He's had some trouble with "bullies" again this year. The issue being that at this school, all of the kids there have some social-struggle of one kind or another. Jaysen has to learn to be tolerant of other's differences, just as we want others to be of his. This is not an easy concept.

Rylan is settling in, but I'm noticing how bad his anxiety truly is.
No thanks to me and SH#2. We're both anxiety messes.
I supppose the positive side there is, I am able to make sense of his anxiety. I know it well. Hopefully, I can be supportive enough in the right ways, that he doesn't end up in a jacket that hugs him back, later in life.

The rest of the fam is great-
I don't want to write about them too much, without their permission, but we're good.
Things are good.
