Found this 12lb weighted best today at Aldi’s. (as a parent of a sensory pressure seeker, fitness tools are many times a great thing and less expensive than products marketed for autism/SPD).
Also really liking the cognition improvement & memory regurgitation since incorporating cbd oil. The below conversation made my heart fill with joy & my eyes leak a little.
Me: “Tyler. The cases water of water are in the back of the explorer & a weighted vest, will you go get them?”
Tyler: “a weighted vest like in elementary school?”
(I was shocked he has NEVER mentioned that vest and that was 6 & 7 years ago)
Me: “yes. A different kind but yes.” I am smiling from ear to ear.
He brings inside, I put it on him.(I am thinking it’s too heavy)
Me: “do you like it?”
Tyler: “yes it feels good. This is just like elementary school.”
Me: “you can take it off if you want, I just wanted you to try it on”
Tyler: “I am not ready to take it off”
It is still on (almost an hour)
I have know idea what he truly knows & what he remembers. Over the past few months he has been blurting things out, stuff I am shocked he remembers.
