a new day June 10, 2012

Posted by caizooka in autism parenting.

Today I opened my email and nearly jumped out of my seat. My O was invited on a playdate!!! Holy Heavens, it is a big thing for us. Of course, I broke into tears. 3 year ago, I never, ever saw the day in which I saw a day in which my child was capable of playing, further more, being invited by a peer on a playmate. It makes me think. A lot. I always divide things into two piles…the things that I can control, and the things that I cannot. Today threw the equation off a bit. I do not like to give blatant control of my children’s lives to any person. But, in some respects, it was another person’s action that I had no control over that dictated my child’s life. My life. I’ll have to ponder that a bit more.

What I do know is that my child’s eyes lit up when I told him he was invited on a play date. He was truly elated. I love to see his eye lit up. But his reaction is not that of a child that craves personal connections. It was a reaction of a child that loves star wars and knew that this buddy also loves star wars. That is sweet.
