Today’s #Autism Victory: Chicken soup and the meltdown

Today’s #Autism Victory goes to Mr.  Emmett John.  This may sound strange,  but he had a meltdown this afternoon and that was part of the victory.  Weird right?

Let me explain. 

Emmett John is the pickiest eater of our 3 boys with #Autism and probably the pickiest eater known to man.  Between his special dietary needs and sensory issues,  feeding him is next to impossible.

Today I began making my homemade chicken noodle soup.  This is part now our move to a whole foods diet. Anyway,  the chicken had been building for hours and was cooked but I usually let it cook all day long. I also hadn’t remove the bones yet.



Emmett woke up from his nap and wanted to eat lunch.  He ended up having a meltdown because he wanted to eat my chicken soup for lunch. My son,  the one who usually freaks out because he doesn’t want to eat something,  was actually freaking out because he wanted to eat my homemade chicken noodle soup. 

That is simply unheard of in the Lost and Tired family.

I’m gonna count this as a #Autism Victory.  I’m so excited that he wanted this that I strained out some broth and made him a small bowl.  Great job Emmett,  trying new things isn’t easy and you made me so proud. 🙂
