Fitness Class

Lately, Caleb's been doing great. Many a day, I think is he really an aspie or just a misdiagnosed quirky neurotypical (to borrow a term from the autism community). But throw Caleb on a sports' field or in a fitness class, and all my questions fade away.

Such was the case this afternoon. Caleb has been taking a fitness class. He starts the class out well, but quickly begins to look like a fish out of water. I still don't know if he gets frustrated because his motor skills are slightly delayed or if he's a little overwhelmed. Whatever the case, the class has yet to end pretty.

At the end of the class, I was standing on the mats coaching him in conjunction with his instructor. I could feel the other parents' eyeballs piercing the back of my head. But, I think I've moved past embarrassment at this point, to accepting the fact that he's different and so am I, and that's o.k.
