When dealing with autism, you find that you have to get more creative than you ever thought possible!
There is no limits to the times you need to try some other way or something new or something completely out there just to get an end result.
Change of routine
As long as you are aware that 'plan A' will most likely fail!! and you have at least 3 other options to try (sometimes more), then all will be fine in the end.................................... and by that I mean when you have calmed down from the stress of it all and can sit back and say
'well, we got through that one!'
'At least we know what to do next time'
'It's OK we never liked that place, who wants to go back anyway?'
'That was different'
'Yes high fives all round, that was awesome'
'open the wine! this day needs a drink'
'Hahahahahahahahaaaaa did you see the look on there faces'
'If anybody needs me, I'll be in bath, I think this has stained me down to the bone!'
