Two things have kicked have really taken a turn for the positive this week. Tyler making his own lunches at night for the next day (when I ask he will do it without hesitation or dispute) AND……….. letting the alarm clock be set!!!! Normally I have to wait until Tyler is asleep to set his alarm but Monday, he asked me as I was turning off his light, aren’t you going to turn on the alarm? So I didn’t question it, I just did it! I’ve turned on the alarm every night and it’s left the alarm on.
I know they seem so very small but it is a big sense of responsibility. Even though he is 18, he’s not ready for adulthood yet, but adding to responsibilities is a great step forward.
