Big kid!

Cooper has Autism and safety awareness is a huge issue for kids with Autism.  I've appeared to be a helicopter mom over the years because I've had to stick pretty close to him on playground equipment.  I can relax about a lot of stuff but I'm not ok with him just walking off a playground structure.  He didn't walk until he was 30 months old so I'm not cool with a broken leg or heaven forbid, worse!  Here lately, he's becoming more aware of his environment and being safe.  So, he's not doing the playground all by himself! I get to sit on the sidelines with my Starbucks now like all the other moms!  It's the small victories, people!
