This fall when I pulled out my winter coat, I discovered the poor beastie had patch worthy spots , and wasn't big enough to close around Rootlebug and I to wear him in the winter.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day no matter how you celebrate :)
Please remember that its EVERYONE'S HALLOWEEN, some kids are non verbal and
can't say trick or treat, or thank you, some have poor motor skills and may take more than one
candy by accident, and some kids like my brother are over 6 feet tall!
Be kind and remember that even though some people look like adults, they're really kids *age wise or function* and besides, anyone and everyone who dresses up or performs a trick deserves a treat!
On Halloween as an autistic adult,
I've ALWAYS loved Halloween! I loved dressing up because I wasn't myself for that night, I could be anything I wanted! Anyone!
I could knock on doors without anxiety because I wasn't me, and literally everyone else was doing it , so I knew I wasn't bothering anyone X)
I love the pumpkins, and how pretty and twinkly they are in the night, the cool air, the people who dress up to answer their doors and the small peeks inside their small universes beyond the closed doors.
I love everything about Halloween, HOWEVER
It can really be a toss up for kids on spectrum.
I love it, my brother HATES it, he's afraid of the scary faced pumpkins, and thinks he's too big, that people will turn him away *kid's been taller than me for the last 3 years and he's only 14! *
He has stamina issues like I do, and doesn't actually eat much candy.
But he loves spending Halloween visiting a neighbour or two, Gramma, and then watching Halloween specials and eating popcorn cozied up at home :)
Its all about celebrating the way that makes you feel safe , happy and comfortable!

|Trick or Treat! A joke from Rootles and I for all the baby wearers and Mommies *Mummies?* out there :D|

That's how long HB and I have been parents 💟
22 Weeks, 8 weeks of boobies feeding H-E double hockey sticks, 3 in our little family, 2 wonderful weeks camping, 1 tiny, toothy baby, and countless diapers!
Life is definitely louder now, but I love it 😺
Rootlebug is an amazing little person, I love watching him explore his world in new ways every day. I wake up to his smile and thumping me good morning, and go to sleep to him laughing in his dreams.
💟He is my most wonderful creation!💟
And I'm still a time lord, my second heart just lives outside of me now, vibrantly full of love and wonder.
Life in our spoonie house will never be the same, and I'm so thankful and happy that life is so loud now.

So, as you know we've recently had a beautiful little baby and he's already making HUGE change happen in our lives. Being on spectrum, its hard.
Its really really really hard, but so worth it!
I love my little Rootlebug to the moon and back! X3
This is the last of the full size comics that you'll be seeing for a little while *buu, sadface!*
I promise there will still be little things being posted, at least once a month, I LOVE writing/drawing this blog and I'm determined to keep it going even if its slowly as we adjust to our new lifestyle led by baby :)
Things will just look a little different thats all!
I don't know what I'll get to draw, it could be short little one panels, or maybe more like a strip from the papers, super simple, or maybe just illustrations with my thoughts blogged out like this, but there will be SOMEthing every month.
Alrighty, here we go, until next time big comic format!

A couple weeks ago we got to take a weekend off at HB's Mum and Dad's house, it was a relaxing work weekend X)
Gramma Di taught us how to make 30 freezer meals and 30 days of work breakfasts for HB for about $100 and one day of prep and cooking. It was pretty epic!
I did the fruit chopping for mini pies and kind of just stayed out of the way, leaving the noise of the processors and all the speedy spicing to the kitchen witches ;)
I just don't move as fast in the kitchen as HB and his Mom, especially not with a big belly full of squirmy baby!
When all the cooking and rushing for the day was done we went to visit our favourite store in Pembroke, Brimstone & Belladonna , the most amazing little esoteric shop ever!
Its very easy to fall in love with B&B AND the two wonderful witches who make it so homey <3
If you're ever in the Pembroke area I definitely reccomend a stop in for any and all ecclectic requirements!
AND THEN.... ... ....
I PLAYED DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS for the first time ever XD
And you know what? I had a lot of FUN!
(HB had to help me with picking the right dice and adding them up quickly , but I really had a good time playing my character!)
I played a short ,ugly little half orc named Amy Apocalipstic XD
She's married to a flamboyant, pink leather armoured, Jack Harkness type will do anything with legs, half orc man , Marco Apocalipstic!
(Hes a little nuts, asking his axe ,Hellena Handbasket, for permissions and advice before doing anything EVER)
Amy is more of a hit it with a stick kind of person, FrackaWhacka now ask questions and get healed later type girl *lols*
Here are some sketches from our adventure :D
*the little pencils are mine, blue pen are hb

This is my first time blogging by phone, so I hope this works while my computer beasts are on the fritz!
This is a mini zine I drew this week while I was hovering around the house while HB was at work, at 8 months pregnant I find myself too exhausted to do big work at the moment but I still wanted to make a comic this month :)
So here we are, lots of cuteness with a side of positve message, hope everyones having a good week!

Hey there everyone :)
A new comic! I know , I'm excited too! It was kind of a heavy topic, but you knew we would hit some of those eventually.
Words have power, its so true, a lot of people don't realize the power of words until they've been on the negative end of a whisper, and still felt their proverbial cheek stinging days later from the whispered slap :/ Its not very nice, but likewise ,kind words can be totally uplifting , and empowering!
*or if you're into spoken slam poetry, some of them out there leave me with brain/body tingles the words have so much to say!*
I have a project for everyone this month, it being the Valentine month, spread the power of good words! Take the time to say something meaningful , nice or empowering to someone, at least once a week or more if you want/can!
It will make that person's day, and their smile will make you smile, keep the good juju in the words, even when you don't think anyone is paying attention, someone always hears you, especially if you have cats,they love being complemented *lols*
Parents especially, keep the good power of words, your children will learn to empower others with their words and feel better about themselves , which is a pretty awesome power in today's world I think . Even if your little one is non verbal, ALWAYS ASSUME COMPETENCE!
They hear you, make sure what you're telling them , even inadvertently, empowers them :)
