Special Exposure Wednesday

5 Minutes for Special Needs




our son loves his root beer. he would drink root beer every day if he could, but he can't cuz we are mean parents. and he loves drinking out of a straw. he was 4 or 5 when he finally was able to suck strongly enough to use a straw. we had many trips on the road, and many trips to the fast food places that were aggravating, cuz he couldn't use a straw ( he didn't do well with sippy cups either) this photo reminds us that good things do happen and our kids do accomplish great things, including learning to sip thru a straw!

there are more great photos of special kiddos over at 5 minutes for special needs. go check it out!

That is one happy boy :0) My Diva loves rootbeer too, as long as it isn't too bubbly. A straw is a must!

That is wonderful! I love it when we can enjoy all the steps our kids take- especially the ones most people take for granted.
