Last week we did a lot of Christmas activities. I sometimes forget that Chloe gets upset if we do too much
Wednesday we saw the lights, Thursday we had a Polar Express night with big sister Mattie and last night her brother was here to watch The Grinch. She was letting me know it was to much. I try to push her a bit so she can experience fun events, but she definitely let’s me know when shes had enough!!
So I told her we will slow down now. I’ll ask her if she wants to see the Christmas lights again. If she does we will go, if not we won’t go. We still have a few things to do, but it involves food, so she will love it☺️
It’s good to push our children with Autism to do things, but we do need to also look for signs of them being overstimulated. Too many activities in a row is too much for my girl. .
She is getting excited that our Christmas chain is getting shorter. She loves taking a link off every night. So the rest of December we will enjoy Christmas music and movies. If she wants to do an activity we will do it. I don’t want her upset and throwing fits. It’s Christmas ☺️
I hope all of you are well🥰
