Today is his birthday and we been trying to find something for our family to do because dad in the air force and will be leaving next week for 5 month so we wanted to do something fun to celebrate and as a family.... we before we are about to leave i allow my 7 yr old to give his brother this present that he picked otu for him.... Mind you my 7 yr old was up at 630 am this morning to go and get ballons and cake too for his special brother this morning .... well we sign to him happy brithday and Colby give dylan a big bag with a very cool gift he picked out and what does my son Dylan say right at him..... I DONT LIKE THIS Present its Stupid ....... and then taking the card from his brother he opens it and sees it dont have naything in the card he tells his brother He HATES the gifts colby had gotten him...... I was sooooooooo upset to see my 7 yr olds face just turn from excitement tooo just pure sadness....This was the very first time i really seen how a sibling with Aspergers effects the rest of the family,,,,, My heart is broken not only for my 7 yr old and how sad he is rigth now but for my Birthday Boy cause there are some things he just cant help..

Just needed to vent to someone that might undersand.



Thanks,

It is so hard to see the problems both sides of the coin deal with. My 6 year old thinks that her 9 year old brother, who has aspergers, is the greatest. More often than not his reactions to her caring are well "aspie" typical. I know he can't help it but it is so hard to prepare for.
