Was 'allowed' to visit my son this eve with Dominos lol but after pizza and 10 minutes watching TV I was told to leave as I had 'broken his rules' !! I had :

1. Moved my hand off my knee which is inappropriate
2. Laid down on his sofa which is just plain lazy and there is no excuse
3. I had used his toilet instead of going to the supermarket opposite to use theirs

Oh the irony !!!

When you've finally trained him in how to use the dishwasher, but now all your crockery is covered in chips and cracks

When you and your two sons have the same odd behaviours and it has nothing whatsoever to do with genetics


When the people caring for your sons react to you and give you a penetrating (there she goes again, doesn't she know?) look if you get stressed (I've treated all of them to 2 miles an hour streams of texts)

When at drama club (that I co-run), she can't take direction, can't listen without interrupting, etc etc, but give her the job of Director, and she's in her element - and did a pretty good job! PDA at its best!

When every available surface is covered with Lego and you inadvertently kneel on it,
When you find yourself naming Thomas characters years after,
When you check the softness off material of clothes before considering buying them,
And when going on holiday means taking everything bar the kitchen sink because your little one really can't sleep without it....

When your son tears his shoes apart and you buy a replacement pair in his autistic brother's size - because that's what you do every month.

I've been holding on to these for a while and just got my approval here, so, here goes:


When your mother-in-law sends you a great cartoon about the Autism spectrum (www.theoraah.tumblr.com) and then tells you in no uncertain terms that your child has a "mild" case.


When The Dirt Block (my son) reads said Autism cartoon and exclaims, "So, I'm special.  Tell me something I don't already know."


When you have to be comfortable with your child looking at any and every expert in any and every field and correcting them on things they obviously aren't aware of.  "You may not know this, but..."


When the story of how your son came rushing at you in the grocery store with a basket at Mach 3, screaming, "It's comin' in hot, Daddy!" becomes a story of some familial pride.


When you have to explain to your child's teachers that just because THEY think it's an appropriate boundary...


When asking your child to shower on a non-shower night causes a meltdown.


When spelling words make you think your child needs an exorcism...
