as a lot of you know I have 2 autistic kids, a girl and a boy. well to make a long story short we've never really had a life about the last 4 years cuz we just haven't been able enjoy ourselves because our children have been too unmanagable. well we've been working real hard with them (my son particularly), and they have been doing extremely good. I've never known what my sons potential is; if he'll be able to drive, get the gist of sports or anything that his daddy is interested in. well the last 2 days my wife and daughter have been out of town, and we've got to spend some time together. for the first time I've actually been able to get that kid to pick up a tool, and let me help him, and teach him. his attention span isn't real long, but he's actually starting to show some interest. it just makes a daddy's heart wanna explode! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif its going to take some pretty good patience, but it's nice I can actually have something I can do with my son besides play dinosaurs!
