Every morning, as part of sending T off to school, we give him a post-it affirmation to read in the car.
And yes, it’s usually sickeningly positive! 😆
With the topic of dreams still on my mind, we wrote him this message this morning: “Always believe in yourself and your dreams…”
After he read it out loud, he shared, “I dreamed I went to jail last night.”
I swiftly told him to pick another dream to believe in.
I also had to force myself to not crack up.
Children with FASD often take things literally – and this was one of those hilarious moments.
I gave T a kiss on his head, shut the car door, stood on our front steps and waved at him as the car backed out of the driveway.
“Bye, I love you,” he shouted out the open window.
“I love you, too,” I shouted back, as the car drove off to school.
