10 emoticons for special needs parents

I haven't had a good night's sleep in approximately 10 years

Child did something for the first time and HOLY COW HE JUST DID THAT

I didn't do any of the therapeutic exercises with my kid that I was supposed to today/this week/this month/this year/in his entire lifetime

Had to deal with insurance company incompetency, once again

Made the mistake of checking a child development book and now I'm feeling kind of nauseous

Child won't stop repeating same phrase/watching same movie/watching same YouTube video/singing same song/playing same video game/reading same book/same etc. etc. etc.


Therapist/teacher/doctor/relative/mailman/lady at dry cleaner counter gushed about how well child is doing
Having one of those grief spurts

I had eleventy billion things to do today and only one got done 
Too burned out to feel any emotion whatsoever

  1. What is your "I've haven't had enough coffee" face?

    1. Ha ha! My no-coffee face is remarkably similar to my burnout face.

  2. These are great. I think I had every single one of those expressions in about the same order last week at my son's birthday party. Parties, especially those involving him, stress me out, but it went splendidly (a big change from last year, when he hid for most of his party), much to the delight of, well, all of us who know Thomas very well. :D

  3. #1 for so many years. Therapy locations should offer nap spots for parents!
