Don’t sweat the small stuff ..

By | February 25, 2015

Something I found myself saying to our food shopping delivery man, when he told me that bread, etc had been substituted.  His opening words were “you’re not going to like me today….”.

My response was quite simply “we don’t sweat the small stuff here, I have two autistic children”, from which he didn’t know what to say, so I laughed, so did he.

And it’s true.  Little things that might mean more, don’t, because there is always something else.

(I’m excusing myself from the WordPress-related strop I threw a while ago because the app was being silly).

Seriously though, when you’re given no expectations for your beautiful child, you worry like bil-e-o about her future and then she writes this:



Small stuff – like a substitute loaf or two – isn’t sweated.

It is and you can probably guess how much of a worrier I used to be x

I can totally relate to this post. Things like shopping substitutions just pale into insignificance don’t they!
That little note is beautiful though. choked me up a little.

They definitely do, previously I might have over-worried about silly little things, now it’s “ok, move on” x

What a lovely note, I’m sure you have placed that on your fridge. I feel the same but I also find I now speak my mind more about small stuff. Something I wouldn’t have done in the past. More in a I have more important stuff to worry about than this lol

Me too, I think the knowledge that our children can’t always speak out motivates us to do so x
