Yesterday my son finished his first 300 piece puzzle with my help. It was his Christmas gift but in reality it was my gift since it made me happy 😃! 🧩
We have come a long way from struggling to match a triangle in a shape sorter . When he was 3 we thought he would never match a triangle piece to a board so this was truly an achievement.
Did he do the puzzle alone? No , I had to help him sort but let me tell you even if I had to do it, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without his help. It was a marathon session from 3 pm to 8.30 pm with a break for his exercise and dinner.
Autism is represented by a puzzle 🧩 piece. But for us puzzles have always been the challenge. So definitely a feather in our cap!
So what did we get for his reward? More puzzles of course. The same one was one sale at 50 percent off , off season price so we got two of those. Was he happy? Not much. He just wanted a brownie at the mall. 😉
On a lighter note it just feels like yesterday when my son used to struggle along with my Mom to finish 8 piece jigsaw puzzles! Waiting for the day when I can dump a 500 piece puzzle to my Mom and my son and enjoy their new struggle!😊😊😊
