You know there are times when I do feel like I am being punished for some kind of past wrong.
Most of my life is pretty good right now. Our current money situation is good, that isn't always the case. I have a great relationship with my husband. I have beautiful children, who love me as much as I love them. I am not even bored, which is saying something considering we are smack dab in the middle of summer.
The problem is that it only takes one little thing to drive me right over the edge right now.
My beautiful, sweet, autistic daughter is spitting again.
No this isn't just spitting, this is blowing disgusting raspberries right in your face

Ok so I know there are some of you out there who are saying...
Oh look how cute she is, it can't be that bad.
Well its worse!
Imagine if you will, someone spitting on you every time you try to hug them. Or spitting on you all the way through a meal, which means when her mouth is full of food.
Imagine that the noise from this action is in your ear every waking moment.
Yes I do mean EVERY moment she is awake.
That means from 8am to 9pm.
She even keeps herself up at night doing it.
Every hour of every day.
This has been going on for about a week now.
I am getting very tired of this.
The hard part is that she isn't like other children. I cannot punish her for doing this because it is really not a conscience act. Yes she knows she is doing it, and yes it gets worse if you try to stop her. But it is more of a compulsion, than anything else. She literally cannot stop!
It is just this one little thing.
Other than that my life is just great thank you very much!

I'm sure that's quite unnerving! Hopefully soon she'll find something new to do instead and it will be less unnerving. Good luck!

There's nothing that says we aren't allowed to be annoyed to the point of insanity by our children now and again.

That would make me insane.
How bout you take a break for lunch today and let her spit on my kids for an hour or two!

Hi, I enjoyed reading your blog.

Sher is 100% right. Nothing says we can't get annoyed by our offspring. I think I've called mine dirtbags more than once or twice and told them to get off my last nerve!

Hang in there girl!

Hope things have settled down or that you've been able to take a break for her for a day or even just an hour. Hang in there school is about to start!!
