Last night I was driving Anthony to OT, the traffic is horrible. They have been doing construction on this route forever, months and months. It's so frustrating and I am just grateful that we only do it once a week. Anyway, I was sitting in traffic and Anthony started grabbing at my shoulder, pushing at me. I offered him my water and he pushed that away, so I got his iPad out of his bag and gave it to him and right away he said "I need to go to the bathroom". I said okay, give me a second, and I got out of my far left lane of traffic and shot over to the right so I could get to the next light and then to the NEXT light and then park at a Hardees, where we ran in and got into the bathroom where he peed for two minutes straight! I was super excited and kept telling him, great job, Anthony! So we were leaving and he pulled me over to the counter where I bought him a Sprite.
It was so, so great. First, he used his iPad to tell me something, THEN he held it until we got to the bathroom and THEN he knew that he deserved a reward AND where it was. We had never been there before but of course he's been to fast food restaurants before and knows where everything is.
Then he went to OT and worked with his new therapist, who he really seems to like and who seems to love him. It was a really great and sweet victory.
