Jeni Decker about this book: I am the lucky mother of two autistic sons who are on opposite ends of the autism spectrum and these are some of our stories. When I first began researching books on autism what I noticed where how depressing most of them were. I read them all and then decided what the world needed was an honest and funny look at what it is to be a parent of kids with challenges. Then I wrote that book. Included are mini-chapters written by my eldest son Jake. While my kids are now in their teens, these stories cover their younger years, from toddler to elementary and just beyond, and the challenges they both faced along the way, as well as how we learned that "normal" is relative.
The book includes chapters titled: "Tickling the Weiner," "Why I Hate Pokemon," "Santa: Give it a Friggin' Rest, Already," and "Oprah's the Reason My Kid Thinks I Want to Drown Him in the Tub"...
