Today I took my 4 years old with autism, Emmett, out to lunch. There’s a really cheap Chinese place around the corner and they have a lunch buffet.
One of Emmett’s most favorite things in the word is Chinese food and he’s been asking to go at least once a day for awhile now. I finally got paid today and so I thought I would surprise him with a trip to the Chinese buffet.
He was so excited and kept asking when it would be time to go. 🙂
I really think it’s important for me to spend as much time with him as I can. He’s going through a time in his young life that he really needs some guy time.
Emmett and I are pretty much with each other for most of the day.
I feel like he really benefits from watching me interact with people in a public setting. It seems to help iron out some of the social awkwardness, at least for him.
I try to have guy time with all my kids as often as possible. Not only do they learn from my example but I learn from them as well.
I managed to have guy time with both Elliott and Emmett this week and I’m really thankful that I was able to do that. Sometimes life doesn’t allow for as much one on one time as I would like it to. That’s why it’s so important to seize the opportunity to do so, whenever possible.
