sigh.....it's gonna suck! The last time we went, as soon as he saw the building he threw up all over himself and the car. I had to change his clothes. I'm prepared for these events. I have paper towels, I have Wet Wipes, clean clothes, socks, etc. I have a bag to put all the soiled clothes in. I have a special spray to help remove the smell from the van. It can't remove the trauma we've both faced but a Xanax can do that.
Anyhow, I'm hopeful he'll do well. He's been twice before and the dentist is awesome. I love her! He's lost 3 teeth now. And I do mean lost. We've never found them. I bet you he swallowed them. Seriously. My life is truly needs to be made into a book. You'd laugh so hard. The new ones coming in are of monstrous proportions. They are teeth meant for a 20 year old man's body. Not a 6 year old that only weights 44pds if even that. They are huge!!!
One way or another I'll convince my son with autism to wear braces. I don't care how many social stories I have to write, don't care how many bribes I make, or souls I sell. It's gonna happen!!!

I think what I'll do is make a social story for it. There is a great app called Stories2Learn that we have on his Ipad. When he got new shoes (which he hates doing) he didn't want to wear them. I made a social story and after he read it he readily wore his new shoes. Maybe...just maybe if I do that for the Circus.....
