When I became a special needs parent many years ago i lwarned two things. First I learned to NEVER to never take things for granted. The second thing I learned was to truly appreciate the little things.
Most people will see these pictures and think, so what. However, this is much bigger “so what”. Elliott, RARELY ever tries new things. Today Elliott had peanut butter and jelly. This is beyond a rare occasion, in fact I have NEVER seen him do this. Not only was it peanut butter and jelly but it was on whole grain bread.
As a parent experienced in the ways of Autism, I have learned to truly appreciate these deceivingly “little” moments for the oftentimes much “bigger” steps forward they actually are.
