I witnessed a miracle this morning, snack dab in the middle of my kitchen.
Markers littered the table and a I watched my little boy write his name for the very first time.
This probably doesn’t seem like a big deal to most people; but it’s kind of a big deal to us.
Children with Dyspraxia struggle with fine motor skills. For Jackson, holding a pencil and tracing letters is very difficult. He’s worked hard and made a lot of progress with occupational therapy, but it’s still something I worry about – will he be ready for kindergarten if he can’t write his name?
This morning he took a marker in his little hand and I asked him to write a J.
He wrote a J on the paper and I cheered.
Before I knew it, he said “A” and wrote a pretty perfect A next to the J.
Then he spelled his name out loud and wrote the remaining five letters.
He did it ON HIS OWN!
Yes, some of the letters are backwards and they are far from perfect, but it’s perfect to me!
This morning, smack dab in the middle of my kitchen, I witnessed a miracle.
