I know there are many differing opinions on taking vitamins, some even say that you just have expensive pee when you take lots of vitamins! I must say I completely disagree with this opinion. I have taken different vitamins from the drug store over the years and never felt that they made a difference. Then after reading Jenny McCarthy's book on her journey with her sons autism I decided to try excellent quality vitamins. The reason for the higher quality than you get in the drug store was to avoid things like gluten in the vitamins. All I can say is WOW! I could see a difference in the kids immediately and I felt the difference right away as well! Between the diet and the vitamins we all made huge improvements!

Here is a list of what we are all taking at the moment...

Essential fish oils
multi vitamin
Juice plus AM and PM

This list changes at times, sometimes there are even a few more and we are always adding new supplements to help out. If you are wondering how to get a younger child to take pills and let me tell you Kolton was not thrilled with the idea of taking anything at all! We simply let him put his capsules on a spoonful of applesauce and he downs them no problem!!

Happy vitamins!

Logic of an Asperger's boy

Good morning!

Kolton is such a logical boy even though he is only 8! I am sure he could be an engineer by next week!

He was complaining that he was bored and I suggested that he go and play with his toys in his room. He told be that he had no interest in those so I suggested that we should throw them out if they were so boring. He then asked me if I liked to scrapbook every day and since I don't scrapbook every day maybe we should throw out my scrapbooking supplies! I know when I have been "got", he did have a great point!

You just can't fight logic!
