7 yr old recognizes SPD!
Tonight my oldest son & I are food shopping at Super Walmart. He's SO looking forward to buying goldfish there since our last Betta fish passed a few months ago. We are at the tail-end of the food department. I tell him we need some meat, not for him since his SPD effects his food choices (no meat except McNuggets)& his weight at 43 pounds on a good day!. He is in the cart (yes, he still fits!) and starts complaining about the smell. I said "What smell? It is all packaged up?". He continues to complain, hold his nose & gag a bit. So as we leave the meat section, he says "Mom, don't you know I have Sensory Dysfunction problems???".
Oh, yes my child, I think - ever since you have been in utero when you wouldn't put your head down resulting in a breech c-section. And, when you cried your 1st whole year of life unless you were attached to my breast or constantly in perpetual motion... Or as even 'til this day you complain about every tag, won't wear jeans, emotionally & physically upset easily & still choose french fries as a main dish 6 years later... I know oh so well... But love my tender-hearted sweet little boy just the same!From a mom of 2 SPD boys, the youngest who has a twin sister (whom just tags in shirts bother)!
