Holidays stress me out. Not only do I have to take care of myself, and both the kids during a holiday break, there’s a little matter of a FEAST and COMPANY we have to deal with as well. While my kids tolerate company, they don’t like the feast part. They don’t like the food, they don’t like the fact they have to sit still for hours at a time, and they don’t like to keep their “nice” clothes clean for pictures afterwards. Of course, they let me know all of this through typical autism behaviors – screaming, tantrumming, running away. And I’m the one who gets all the dirty looks from company.
