This weekend was pretty full for the kids and myself. Pooh did well asking for his medication with verifying his name and birthday. He lost focus and tried to reach over the counter and hug the clerk. She seemed  terrified at first so I stopped it and immediately explained.  She seemed okay, but I couldn’t help but get that feeling she’d be happier if we weren’t there, It’s a shame some people don’t get it. On the way out I reminded him about his personal space. He just looked at me with those cute eyes of his and said,  “All need sugar loves.” In my mind I thought he had a point, this world would be a little happier I think.

We stopped at the grocery store. I wanted to see what he may ask for this week. I’ve been seeing  changes in what he asks for, and that’s always a plus in my book. This week was really new. He want sunglasses, chocolate cookies, and a toy shark., when I asked why about the sunglasses, he said “eyes hurt” but no answer about the toy shark. Hey that’s huge he even did that. I was so proud. And of course we had to do a selfie to show them off.

Showing off the new glassesI felt very complete  this weekend. Even with all the mom stuff I had done, we accomplished a lot in the community. Even just  small interactions with people he knows is a big step in the right direction, as well as staying focus  with what he needs to do to make it in the world. I think he has a great chance at it as long as I faithfully keep showing him the world. I see it in his eyes at times he gets lost. That’s when my anxiety gets up there wondering if he will regress again.

    Showing him the world thru your eyes and giving him the tools he needs to move forward is a big accomplishment for your beautiful and friendly boy Autism Momma! He has come so far on this journey and will go even farther because of you.
