LESSONS FROM THE PLAYGROUND

Today my kiddo taught me: Sometimes the things that we want most, are just out of our reach.

TINY TALES OF AUTISM – HOW THE COOKIE CRUMBLES

It is 11:00 pm and I’m baking cookies right now. Not fancy cookies. They do have chocolate chips in them, but that doesn’t count as fancy in these days of “foodie” ingredients like “truffle infused rose hips,” or “artisan crumbles featuring dribbles of lavender oil” or “pomegranate compote with a semi-sweet seaweed foam glaze.”

image

The chips are plain chocolate. Milk chocolate, according the package. I didn’t make the chips, which already makes me a terrible person, but nobody is perfect.

I have 8 – 10 minutes to explain why I bake cookies. Cyclone Kid is sleeping upstairs. I wanted snacks, pie in particular, but we don’t have anything like that in our house.

The last time I went on a diet, years ago, I resolved that food was supposed to be work and that work takes time. The fact that our busy lives have made it so that we no longer have time to eat anything that is not instantaneous, was making me fat and impatient. So the first step I took was that I stopped buying pre-made and pre-package desserts.

We all know that food isn’t supposed to just “happen” all the time. Science is awesome and has given us some amazing products that just pop into existence like you’re strolling through “Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.” But, we come from hunters and gathers and cavemen. None of them had microwave, gas station burritos.

I’m not some anarchist who thinks all food should be raw, or stuff should be made only with the recipes they used back in Biblical times. But, I did promise myself that if I wanted a darn cookie, I had to want it enough to:

Preheat the oven,
Walk over to the freezer,
Get out the package of cookie dough,
Open up the package,
Grab a cookie sheet,
Put the lovely balls of dough on the sheet,
Arrange them 2″ apart
Slide the dough balls into the now pre-heated oven…

And then, most importantly, wait...

Wait for just a little while. Long enough to clean a few dishes. To sing an old song that just popped into my head. Sometimes I end up waiting so long that I decide that I don’t want cookies at all and that I should take them to work the next day, instead.

At times, I wait long enough to stand there, breathing, while I stare at the the wall. For 8 -10 minutes.

There goes the timer. It flies by. The waiting worked out fine. Now it’s time to let things cool off.

TINY TALES OF AUTISM – CALL YOUR LOCAL CONGRESSMAN

image

Cyclone Kid and I are usually full of cute stories and funny accounts of life along the Autism Spectrum, but today we could use your help with something.

We’re working with Autism Minnesota in support a bill currently being considered by the Minnesota Legislature. The bill called “HF3172″ includes provisions that will insure that Minnesota children with Autism can continue to access medically necessary therapy without their parents being required to face overwhelming costs or unreasonable bureaucratic barriers to proven treatments for their children.  These provisions can all be made into law without any further cost to the state by utilizing funds that have been allocated to the Governor’s Autism benefit which has already been approved.

There are ten law makers that sit on the Omnibus Supplemental Budget Bill Conference Committee and it important it is important that these 10 individuals hear from as many people as possible via phone and/or email voicing your support for the HF 3172 Autism Provisions prior to their meeting at 4:30pm on Monday, April 28th.  All you need to do is email or call with the message:

 “Please support all of the HF 3172 Autism Provisions.  Minnesota children with autism are counting on you to adopt these crucial changes to state law to ensure that they can have a chance at a brighter future.” 

You can find additional information at http://www.autismminnesota.org.

I’ve listed the contact information for the 10 committee members below. So if you could spare a moment to contact one of them on behalf of Cyclone Kid and the other Minnesota kid’s with. Autism we would greatly appreciate it.
