What makes Jack, Jack

Jack is unique.

I prefer to think of him as normal and slightly autistic.  Of course I know that he thinks differently and that he has struggles most kids don't.  Sometimes those worries get the best of me.  Sometimes I wonder if I have what it takes as the parent of a child with a diagnosis.  Other times I wonder what he'll be like as he matures into an adult, and what that may involve for us as parents.  But you know what, at the end of the day I wouldn't change a thing about him.  He's funny, smart, energetic, and kind.  He has a great laugh and the sense of humor to go with it.  Maybe he is different, but I love him the way he is!

Yesterday, he randomly told me he loved me - something he rarely does.  There's nothing like hearing, "I love you, mom!!"

  1. I think it is very fun that he enjoys physical play so much and interacting with people.
