Sometimes when raising a child with special needs we wonder how maturity will progress and we question at times if it will ever progress. This last week however, I have seen maturity and a want or need to be a little bit more independent. Lennon has initiated taking his medications. At breakfast or bedtime he gets the tub of meds and looks at them ad I have the opportunity to teach him not only what medication to take but what each medication is for – because he asks! The kids wants to know what he is taking medication for. He now helps setting his med out as well as cutting the ones in half where a whole one is not required. This is quite milestone for Lennon and leaves me with hope for his future. Of course not all areas are maturing but that is alright isn’t it? I mean he’s alive and driving me batty sometimes and that is an amazing thing.
I leave this post today with a picture of him earning a reward for great reading – another area he has grown so much!
