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.

Out with the old

Bryce’s favourite pants and favourite shirt that were two sizes too small, but the ‘must-wear everyday’ items, have finally met the end of their days. His jeans were wearing at the knees, which resulted in holes, and his shirt was starting to become a scarf, it was just so small on him.

After hours upon hours of hearing, “fix them” (fixing the hole in the pants) Daniel and I came to the conclusion that it was out with the old, and in with the new. Surprisingly we both had the same idea, but never discussed it until yesterday, but we both thought that if Bryce picked out his pants, and his shirt, then maybe, knowing it was his decision, his choice, that he’d ‘forget’ about his old favourite clothes.

So, today Bryce and I went to the mall, and here is the pants and shirt that he picked out all on his own:

The jeans are from The Children’s Place and the shirt is from Walmart.

Now I know this won’t take away from the fact that this may become his new favourite outfit that he ‘must-wear everyday’ but it’s a step up, since it’s actually something that fits him. Maybe over time, he will gradually start to favour other outfits, which is what we are continuing to work on, but this is a good start nonetheless.

Thanks for reading,
