Mafe Maria: Personal stories by autism parent mentor, Maria Stultz

A day in my life

Here’s a little slideshow documenting a fairly typical day in my life. I once saw a photo album one of my friends uploaded to his Facebook account for this same purpose, and I have wanted to do something similar since then. Wouldn’t it be interesting to do this every year and see how life changes?

A couple of clarifications: 1) My mom appearing at my home at 11 pm is not typical. This just happened to be the night she arrived to stay with us for a month. 2) This was a weekday. Weekends are totally different; Joey takes care of Joaquin and I work on my handmaking projects a lot of the day. Yes… I have the best husband!

    What a great idea and how wonderfully performed by sliding in to the frames. And of course so recognizable. A true treasure for Joachim.
