“First Waffles, Next Steak”

We have been working on MJ independently making his own meals.  Obviously, we don’t want to overwhelm him so we have him making simple things.  Our ultimate goal is that one day he can sustain himself without our assistance.  Recently MJ came to me and said, “What’s for lunch mommy?”  I was in the middle of doing something and said, “Do you wanna have waffles and fruit?”  A few minutes later he came and showed me his plate of toasted Eggo waffles with syrup (*mind blown* 😮).  I was stunned! He usually gets irritated when I make him do it himself, and yells, “It’s your turn to make it mommy, ” or some other inappropriate statement lol.   I have always observed him while he made it so this truly shocked me!  I told him that I was very proud of him for doing it by himself.  Today, he independently made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Of course, it took him about 20 minutes to do this but he did it by himself.  We are so grateful for this progress.  Who knows…next time it may be a ribeye steak well done 😏.

  1. Wow, that is so encouraging to hear. He’s got great teachers in Mom and dad. Jonathan went to the doctor on December 28th for his physical. He is 5’10” in his stocking feet. Wow. I am looking up at him, these days. But I’m still Mom and he knows it. He’ll be 13 this coming Sunday. He made blueberry muffins last Saturday with his granddad. Who knows, we may have future chefs with thriving restaurants soon. Thanks for sharing.
