Adventures With Autism and Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle

“THOSE children…”

Emily dozed off in the car, then wanted to be held/carried in the grocery store, because she was sleepy. I couldn’t manage it, so I asked her to ride in the cart. Meltdown ensued.

This older woman was mumbling to herself, I could only make out a few words here and there (I heard the word “child” several times). Then came, “those children shouldn’t be out anywhere.”

I pretended I didn’t hear her and continued to talk to my daughter. What would’ve been the point of a battle of wits, when she was clearly unarmed?
