Part 1: Week One of The World Shutting Down
Please understand that I am in no way complaining about or making light of the situation, but his blog is about autism; my son’s autism and the way his mind works and deals with things and that is just what I am going to write about.
Quarantine Diaries Part 2: DC’s ‘Twenty-Nineteen’ (29th) Birthday
DC spent his 29th birthday in lock down. At the time of his birthday, this lock down was still relatively new and confusing to him. I felt bad for him because he so looks forward to his birthdays, seeing friends, receiving gifts and going ‘out to eat’.
Quarantine Diaries: Part 3 – Easter in Lock Down
Once DC’s birthday was over, he quickly moved on to reminding me about Easter. In true DC fashion; birthday over – he quickly moved on to Easter, #ItsWhatsNext – Quite honestly, I hadn’t given Easter a single thought. I had forgotten all about it.

Quarantine Diaries Part 5 – Masks, Garlic and Jelly Beans
Quarantine Diaries: Part 6 – “Yay, Yay, It’s Mother’s Day!”
Shhh! We’ve officially passed the time of night on any given holiday when DC decides this one is over and begins to “remind” me of whatever is coming up next (in this case, Mother’s Day, I would imagine). He hadn’t said a word. Weird. Just weird.

DC woke up this morning with a “Happy Mother’s Day” for me. He then moved right in to asking what we are going to eat later. I made the mistake of telling him that we would try to get Chili’s takeout (HIS favorite place) for dinner so that is all he is interested in.
