|Helping in the kitchen is the latest greatest thing!|
I am meditating most days, I have set up our garage as a dance studio, and I am writing a page of journaling a few times a week (though I'd like to say every day, that's definitely not happening right now!). Taking care of myself and keeping myself calm and serene have become the big goals, rather than desperately finding time to myself in the day to "accomplish" other things. The accomplishment is serenity in itself. The dancing helps me get there, so does the intentional daily mindfulness. But the goal is not yet the dancing, the choreographing, etc, it's just using the dancing to feel good.
There still may be huge deficits in cognition, executive functioning, and self-regulation, but there is so much change in communication and social interaction. We will be celebrating four years in just two weeks, and I can't wait to keep tracking what his next big change will be.
