The holidays? Already?

Posted on: December 2, 2010

Hi everybody! I haven’t posted in about a week. Sorry about that, but I have an autie who’s turning 10 in just a coupla, so been pretty occupied with that. Here’s a link to some helpful holiday tips while I do the birthday thing. Back soon. In the meantime, if you have ideas or things that work for your family over the holidays, birthdays and other reasons to celebrate, leave a comment and share with the community.

Being careful not to overstimulate children’s senses with decorations or too many toys, and being prepared for meltdowns by soliciting extra help and arranging for separate transportation are among Shumaker’s suggestions.
