GRACIE’s LIFE- What it is like being Jay’s Little Sister

It’s hard sometimes being Jay’s sister. I need to understand all the things I need to do because he has aspergers. Even sometimes I need to defend him from people who think he is weird. That makes me feel kind of sad. It’s hard. Sometimes I wish he was not annoying but sometimes he doesn’t know what he is doing. It is good that I understand him because sometimes people are mean to him.

Even if it is hard to understand him, he is my brother and I love him.

  1. I am sorry about your little brother… If it makes you feel better, Grace, I used to be annoyed by my brother as well, even though he did not have aspergers… But you know? As you said, he is MY brother and I love him so much! And the fact that you are such a caring and loving sister won’t go unnoticed! Stay strong! 🙂

  2. i love your blog. it shows how understanding and kindyou are, as well as smart. gramma and myself are so proud of you.LOVE

  3. WOW!!! I am blown away by her insight! the sooner we can understand others we have such an advantage in life! good for your Gracie! you are courages to want to express yourself! you are lucky to have a wonderful brother that has so much to teach you and an AMAZING mom that cares for both of you sooo much!!

    I just LOVE this blog!

  4. Grace, you are a wonderful and understanding sister. I have 3 brothers and sisters, and although none of them had special needs when we were growing up we fought all the time and I sometimes wished I was an only child. I knew that even though they often annoyed me, I annoyed them as well! Even as adults we still tend to annoy each other but are more tolerant of our differences now.

  5. Grace, It is hard hearing other people say mean things about Jay, it is even harder for you to stand up against them in order to defend him. But in life we all have to face things that are hard for us to do, so you are developing a special kind of braveness at an early age. I’m proud of you and I look forward to reading more of your blogs!

  6. Many people don’t know about Aspergers, so your telling them is one of the best ways to educate them. It must be very hard for you at times but you seem very strong. I look forward to reading more of your blogs.

  7. aunt carol is very proud of you and don’t forget, he’ll always annoy you just because he is your brother and you love him. LOL

  8. You are such a special little girl. So sweet and understanding. Jay is so lucky to have a sister like you. I feel so lucky to know you and your family.
