Autism Watch: 2007

As I typed the title, the segue into the old Star Trek series popped into my head. So I went with it.

See, BB has been telling me that not only is he a nature boy, but he’s into sports. He found out earlier this week that there’s a soccer league forming locally and he wants to, no, HAS TO, sign up for it. “I want to play soccer, MOM!”

Okay, I get it, I get it. You want to try a team sport that you’ve never tried before, where you’ll have to go frequently, meaning you’ll have to leave your computer to do it. You might get hit by a ball, shoved by another player, or benched, or worse yet, you might see a teammate not score a goal you think he should have scored. Are you getting this? There’s so much more involved here than just playing soccer!

Regardless, after school today, we stopped by the rec center for the city. Fifteen minutes later, BB had a uniform proudly in hand, and he is an official member of the league. Can you say COOL?

They don’t start playing until September, but that gives us plenty of time to practice as well as working on the social skills necessary for a feat of this magnitude. I’m ready!

(And in case you were wondering, nope, we didn’t mention a word about ASD. With any luck, we won’t need to!)

Sharing a link for him, thanks for reading!
