As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Seatbelt Safety Bryce

In Canada, we have laws that keep children in age-and weight-appropriate car seats until their 9th birthday unless they have reached the height of 145 cm (4’9”) tall. Bryce has always been a huge supporter of seatbelt safety. If anyone in the car, including himself, were in the car without a seatbelt, Bryce would always say “Put seatbelt on”. He loves his routines and it’s always been wonderful that he would remind us to put our seatbelts, and his seatbelt on before we drive.

Since Bryce has turned 9 he no longer needs a car seat. He must have seen us unbuckle/buckle his seatbelt over 1,000 times. He has known what to do, “Push the button”, for a long time now. We’ve shown him how to unbuckle/buckle his seatbelt. But today was the first time he unbuckled and buckled his seatbelt himself after we parked our car. We’re very proud that he has mastered another day to day activity that the rest of us easily take for granted.

We love you Bryce.
