Now for many parents taking your child to a crowded play area is common place but for me it isn't.
Because of loghans disorder taking him to a play area can be a nightmare as he becomes over excited and over bearing and too much for many kids as his social skills and abilities are just not the norm.
So often a trip out involves me policing my own child standing over him or marching up and down every few minutes it sucks quite frankly.
However today the kids were tired of being cooped up and so was I so off we went to the mall, I sat down and ordered a coffee and the boys went off to play, I couldn't see into the play area but 5 minutes in a child came out crying.
I ran for the play area and sure enough Loghan had gotten excited and the little boy ended up hurt so I gave him a star. Lecture and a warning that we would leave and went back to the table.
A minute later Loghan walked up to the child and mom and apologized I cannot explain what a big thing that is it seems like general manners but a lack of empathy is one of loghans issues.
Yet he apologized to the child and his mom and quietly walked back to the play area, I watched him from there and it wasn't the last time I had to go in there but o saw him offer his chair to a younger child I saw helping another and it made my heart sing because that is my child, that is the child I know exists in my heart.
I know the steps are small but the progress is amazing and I hope one day my Loghan knows that he may not think I see the small things but I do and it is a wonderful thing!
