Favourite Friday: The joy of his acceptance

You never know what's going to bring that massive grin to your face.  You know the one I mean, the one you can't stop even when you try, where you think if you don't stop your cheeks might squash your eyes closed.   The best one's are those that catch you unawares.  That's exactly what happened to me this morning.

Like most families that have autism in them, the morning routine is fairly fixed.  The routine gives the kids the stability they need to start the day and helps us get out of the house.  Today though there was a slight adjustment to the routine.  It was the first day that Anthony would be taking his ADHD meds.

We all, including Anthony, agreed, he might be helped if he could concentrate a bit better at school. So as he came down the stairs I reminded him that he would have his medicine with his breakfast this morning.  And that's when it happened.
