I know I tend to be upbeat, positive, maybe a little too happy, but we do have bad days as well as good days. Today it was extreme mood swings and tantrums, with some hitting, kicking, scratching, biting, etc. Days like these are emotionally exhausting, but in addition to that they are intellectually exhausting. Did I change something? Is this the wrong program? Could we be doing the wrong things? Are we asking too much or pushing too hard?

Autism and Walt Disney World: Day 3 Tuesday, Jul 26 2011
Day three at Walt Disney World had us visiting Animal Kingdom. However, three days in a row proved to be a little too much. Our first mistake was sleeping in and getting a slightly later start. You wouldn’t think that arriving at 10:30 instead of 9 would make much of a difference, but in the Florida it certainly did.
Autism and Walt Disney World: Day 2 Monday, Jul 4 2011
Today started a good bit earlier. My darling wife made breakfast reservations for 8:15 at the Crystal Palace, which is in the Magic Kingdom park of Disney World. We got up early, I forced down some hotel room coffee and we hit the road at 7. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the resort, another 10 to get parked and up to the monorail and about 15 minutes to ride the monorail to the Magic Kingdom. Much better than our bus experience.

First off, I’m doing this backwards. We couldn’t have made it to Disney World without months of planning. However, I’ll cover all that in the wrap up as I’m going to need my wife to help write it since she did at least 80% of the work. Plus, I had a great time today and want to write about it now.
