Sometimes it’s the little victories that are most powerful
Mr. Emmett had been struggling with sleeping in his own bed lately. He tries but often either gets scared or can’t get comfortable.
Much of this is sensory related and very difficult to work through.
This oftentimes means that Mommy and Daddy don’t sleep well, if at all. Sometimes it seems like we make progress and other times it seems like we’re getting run over. I sorta feel like when your child is diagnosed with Autism, you should get a Autism Awareness coffee mug, and a lifetime supply of decent coffee. 😊
Two nights in a row now, Emmett has fallen asleep in his own bed and is still there when Lizze and I got to bed. It’s not perfect but it’s significant progress and that’s something we’re very grateful for. We’re also proud of this little guy for continuing to try, even though it’s very hard for him to do.
