Grandma says that daddy was just like him once. Most of the time Daddy was a sweet boy, but sometimes he raised ruckus. He liked playing race car and superhero and got up set when he lost a game. Once upon a time Daddy was even sent to time out.
When Owen and Daddy have a whole day to spend together, Owen tries to tell his daddy how much he loves him. Owen loves Daddy more than chocolate milk....But at the end of the day, Owen knows that Daddy loves him just as much and all day long.
The best of times in every season are the ones spent with Daddy. Whether it's splashing in the waves during summer, jumping through a pile of leaves on a crisp autumn day, or flying a kite at the windy start of spring, the activities might vary throughout the year, but the fun never stops.
When a grumbly Baby Bear refuses to give his father a goodnight kiss, their bedtime routine is transformed into a delightful game, as Daddy imagines all the different sorts of kisses that other animal babies give their dads.
Gah...this boy amazes me every single day on how much he is growing. Okay, so on Sunday, it was Teacher In-service meeting so I was asked to sit with Ginny's class so the teacher can go during Sharing Time. Stephen sat with Miles in Mile's corner of the primary room. Miles will now stay in Primary but in a corner of the room and on his tablet. He will interact with his aid but not with anyone else in the room.

Soon he shut off his tablet and was watching the rest of the primary kids play a game and I could tell he wanted to be called up. He started to hum the primary songs with them. Then it was sharing time and he was asked to come up to flip some cards up. I wasn't sure if he was going to participate in it. But he ran up to the front and flipped both ca…
So, I am a mom of an amazing three year old son who is autistic. It's been a hard road to get to where we are now today. There are things that I wish I knew as a mother when Miles was a baby to look for that would have helped me in the future. So today, I want to help parents see the warning signs.
Monitor your child's development:
Don't wait for the doctor to give you the survey. Watch your child's key social, emotional, and cognitive milestones. It's an easy way to spot a problem early on which means early intervention can be put in place.
