You know....as parents...there are some things we just take for granted. Things like
      kids tying their own shoes...
      kids telling you what they need...
      kids being able to cut their own food...

Our middle Aspie child has some very definite deficiencies. He couldn't tie his own shoes until he was in fifth grade.....he still has trouble telling us what he needs....and his table manners have always left something to be desired.

But you know...it is the little things that make all the difference.

Last night, I witnessed him CUTTING A WAFFLE. I don't mean "creatively tearing it apart" or even "chompoing on it"....but systematically cutting the parts of the waffle into managable bite-sized pieces.

Laugh if you must.....but....

...it brought tears of joy to my eyes!

It truly IS the little things that make all the difference.
