I want to take a second to remind everyone to celebrate the victories. As Autism and Special Needs Parents, we’re all to aware that even the smallest step forward still means forward movement.
Focus on those victories, even on the really bad days because it helps to maintain perspective.
That being said, I want to share a victory we celebrated yesterday and again today. It may not seem like a big deal to the uninitiated but trust me when I say, this is huge.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, Emmett has worn a different pair of pants to school. This has been a nightmare and we have not been able to find a pair of pants that he will wear to school, other than the one he’s been wearing for two years.
For some reason, Emmett decided yesterday morning that he was going to wear his comfy pants to school. Until that moment, he’s consistently refused to refused to do so. It’s a sensory thing for him and Sensory related issues are very difficult to work through.
Anyway, this is a victory for all of us, especially Mr. Emmett. I so incredibly proud of him today. ☺
