Now Reading: A Nice Little "Moment" From This Afternoon…
April 3, 2013
File this one under celebrating the little things…
The wife reported a nice “moment” with the king today.
It was after school.
The king was playing in his playroom.
The weather was nice out so wifey said “Kyle let’s go in the backyard and jump on the trampoline & go on the swing.”
And she proceeded to begin to get him dressed.
As she was putting his shoes on and grabbing his coat, he ran away from her, sat down in the corner nook in his playroom, and slammed his hand down as if to say “I don’t want to go outside! I want to stay right here!”
It took the wife a second to comprehend that he was, in his own “terrible two’s” kinda way, actually communicating with her.
But once it dawned on her she said, “Oh, ok buddy we don’t have to go outside. Thanks for telling mommy what you want. Great communicating!”
And they stayed inside and he continued played in his nook.
That’s a pretty big moment for his majesty because it was absolutely positively clear to wifey that he was reacting to the concept of putting his shoes & coat on.
He must’ve made the connection that shoes & coat mean outside and thought I want to stay here.
And he let her know his desires…loud & clear.
Doesn’t sound like much for an almost 10 year old, but for Kyle it’s kinda big…
A nice little Thursday afternoon “moment” in the ol’ Autism Daddy household.
