Part of the excitement of the year changing is that you get to look back over the previous year and note all of your accomplishments. Over the past year I’ve watched my son aka my little autistic hero grow into a responsible preteen. He helps put the groceries away, makes his own bed and has given himself the job of being responsible for all of the lights in the house. If it sounds like I’m bragging, you’re right, I am. As parents we can’t forget to celebrate all accomplishments, as they land us another step closer to raising happy and responsible adults!
