Today’s gift:  M came up with the idea and then independently planned that he wanted to show a neighborhood friend his new skateboard at the bus stop in the morning.

This multi-step task is one of the very first I can remember him doing.  From conception to execution, he took initiative and ownership and stayed on task with his plan.

It didn’t matter that he didn’t know how to use the skateboard. The spontaneous idea that he wanted to show his friend because he thought the guy would agree it was cool was a giant leap for M.

The Black Widow has arrived.   (That’s M’s board name.)
