#Autism and Animals: The Amazing Victory

Sometimes the stars align and we have a victory. Today was one such day. I introduced you all to Bella, the newest member of the Lost and Tired family. I talked about how she seems to be helping Emmett with a few of his challenges.

I know this may not be the case for everyone out there but animals and Autism have been a good combination, at least for my kids.

We had a major breakthrough this afternoon with my littlest minion, Emmett. Emmett is very sensory sensitive and really struggles in that department. He has to feel the ground to see if it’s wet before walking outside. He doesn’t like getting water, dirt or mud on his shoes. I can’t tell you how many meltdowns we have had over something this simple.

Today however, something happened. Just watch and see if you see what happened. I’m so thrilled with this and I’m glad I was able to record this happening. I know our good friend Julia will probably catch this right away.

Please watch the video and celebrate today’s amazing victory.

There are people out there who wouldn't say, "So what?" but I totally get it. We are all about celebrating victories at our house. Way to go Emmett and great job Bella!

That's great! 🙂 Animals just have a magic about them that's all their own.


We have hundreds of this kind of things happening since we have our dog 🙂 One story…..he kept one cookie for later and the dog ate it…..I stopped breathing. I told him….darling…the dog ate your cookie, I am sorry….his comment after one second thinking…. he said: we have a cute naughty dog and obviously hungry. Can I have a new cookie please? If his brother would have taken this cookie he would have killed him during his meltdown ;).
