Mom in a frenzy: "Wyatt! What did you just do??"
Wyatt acting aloof: "Nothing, Mom!"
Mom excited: "Wyatt!! You just tied your shoe by yourself!! ALL BY YOURSELF!"
Wyatt bashfully: "Yeah...."
Mom: "See, I KNEW you could do it!!!"
I have to take our little victories where possible. I am thrilled at this minor, but monumental accomplishment. Wyatt's tears and frustration over morning time school preparation rituals has been a source of maddening aggravation for me. I hope this means we are over the hurdle here...
