Celebrations and triumphs

I think one of the best parts of being a parent is celebrating your child’s triupmhs over their challenges. Water is a soothing sensory input for Charlotte, so swimming lessons were a natural fit. As she’s gotten older and moved up the levels, she has had to work harder on listening to her teacher, waiting her turn, and using physical strength to move her body in the water. It’s an amazing feeling when the soothing input becomes an instructional tool and practice for real life. Today she graduated from holding her body in a straight glide to gliding with her kickers. I’m so happy to celebrate this achievement with her!
