    This is really awful....I'm still finding it hard to believe. lol

    T would socialize at work, but at home nothing. No matter what we tried.

    Well, just before he quit wallie world he had befriended a really nice girl. And he had several other friends there too. It was this girls birthday this weekend and she was having a "party" at the bowling alley. T was invited. (yes, this by itself is a big deal)

    He went out and shopped for her gift after asking her what she'd like to have. He bought her a giant chocolate bunny cuz she told him all she wanted was lots of chocolate. husband drove him to the party and I picked him up hours later when it was over.

    It went off without a hitch. He came home happy and telling me all about it. lol

    Silly how something so darn trivial can be such a major deal in a difficult child's life.

    That's so neat! That is a memory in itself, that he was so excited. I love those times.

    Sometimes I think those rare wonderful moments mean more to the
    parents than to the difficult child. I'm thrilled that you, husband and difficult child were
    able to share such a happy experience. DDD

    Hmmm, maybe this will lead to more social events, now that he has a taste of it.

    I think that this -- the celebration of a seemingly "trivial" moment -- is one of the gifts of being a difficult child's parent. I'm happy for T and for you, too! Little things can really mean alot to us parents! :angel:

    :bravo: I know how precious it is to see our son's doing what everyone else thinks as normal social activity. I hope they invite him often. It's wonderful to hear.

    That's really great. Glad he was able to have a good time.

    Oddly enough can still recall those feelings when all has went well, esp. when we are young.

    Your post brought tears to my eyes. That is all we want for our difficult child's some normal fun social experiences. We as parents get to enjoy this not nearly enough with our difficult child's. I am so happy for both you and your son! -RM
