Milestone Achieved!

My son finally managed to memorize the whole alphabet today. We have been working on this for about six months now. I’m so thrilled for him. Next up on my list of goals, making sure he memorizes our landline number.
What milestones have you celebrated recently? Were they expected or not? This is a huge achievement on his part. All milestones big or small have to be celebrated, right?

    That's fantastic news, @April2018mom!  You must be very proud of your son and all your hard work has paid off.  I'm sure he will memorise your landline number too.  :smile:
    I can't think of any milestones I have achieved recently.  However, I have just started going to a Tai Chi class.  Something that I've always fancied doing, but never thought I could due to my disability.  I'm loving it!  You are so right that every milestone, big or small should be celebrated.  All the best to you and your son.  :smile:

    We are slowly getting there. I tried teaching him it today. Even wrote it down on a piece of paper (I burned it later) but since I suspect he has dyscalculia he struggled initially.
