He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.
It’s the little things.
I got my biking outfit on and had to run a quick errand. I told my son, Charlie I would be going out for a quick 15 minutes and be right back. He said, “Mom are you going out in that?” I said, “Well yes, why?” He then told me, “Mom you need to not be too confident in yourself!”
With everything I had, I tried not to explode with laughter or feel bad about myself. To tell you the truth I am very conservative and I felt my outfit was very appropriate. Now this is from my boy who is 15, who has autism and is getting more aware each day about his environment I will just say. I stepped out and did my errand. The whole time though I was so concerned that my outfit wasn’t ok and giggling really the whole time about his comment.
You see I was giggling and laughing so much because my son noticed me and actually made a comment on his own about what I was wearing. This is HUGE progress if you know what I mean. He wasn’t absorbed in his own world or his technology. He actually was concerned about his own mom’s clothing choices and cared about it. I was so excited!
