My name is Andrea. I'm a 32 year old wife, stay at home mom and Supernatural addict.

 

This is my son Maverick. He is 3 1/2 years old and he’s Autistic. He loves to  dress up and paint his nails just like his big sister and I never discourage him from doing those things. I allow him to express himself in whatever way he chooses to. 
Last week, my mom was here for a visit and she made my daughter a tutu to wear for 4th of July. Maverick saw it and exclaimed, “OH! SO cute! That’s mine!” and he started to cry when I had to tell him that it was his sister’s tutu. My mom smiled and laughed and said, “I should have known he’d want one! Don’t worry, Mavy. I’ll make you one too.” And she promptly whipped out her sewing machine and made my son a skirt to were for 4th of July. I can’t express how much that meant to me. My mom is strictly conservative Christian, but she is still understanding and open-minded enough to encourage my son in his individuality even though what he wanted to do was not necessarily something that a boy would typically do. If only everyone could have that sort of attitude. 
That’s Grandparenting done RIGHT.
