A Very Big Day in a Very Small Way

This picture, to the ordinary human being, is nothing out of the ordinary. But to me, this picture is nothing short of a small miracle. At the grand old age of three and three-quarters, Teddy has just eaten an entire meal (one that needs utensils, that is) All. By. Himself. Every spoonful was carefully and precariously shovelled by his very own hand. At a time when school looms rather too large on the horizon, and many skills are going to need to be acquired rather too quickly, this is a very welcome development. Teddy is autistic. ❤️
