You know there is autism in the family when your daughter scrapes and carves cavemen drawings into her bedroom wall after watching Ice Age and then promptly eats the plaster!! :D

When you are on first name terms with most of the staff at B & Q as you are always in there buying stuff to cover/fix/replace furniture/decor/doors/shelves/units/etc that your little darling has broken.

When all the staff in the doctors surgery reach for the Anadin when you enter the waiting room with your child.

You cannot possibly be out of the house at 18:20 so as not to miss In The Night Garden or all hell will break loose!

When you cannot go down the bread/cake isle in Tesco without having a look at all the different character birthday cakes.

Whe you know every name of the Thomas the Tank Engine characters, including the new 'friends.'

When you go for a day out and end up with a child in total meltdown cos the socks have developed bumps.

Nothing to do with going outside with no shoes on when it is freezing :whistle

Then you have to do a 15 mile detour on your 2 hr journey home to buy new socks cos no way jose could you cope with the ranting on the 2hr journey home without "nice" socks

when you accidently say "Big Bone Lick state park" in front of your 13 year old and you then hear it repeated for the next 9 days accompanied by hysterical laughter and you pray he doesnt share this "humor" with his teachers at school

You know there is Autism in the family when...

The count down to christmas starts on January 5th to allow enough warning

Your fish are called Thomas, James, Toby

Dirty plates get thrown away rather than washed up if your not quick enough

You go to the large tub of Markro Jelly Babies to find not a single red one is left

You buy a bag of mixed frozen veg and you spend the next 4 hours seperating the veg in to different bags

You go to work and Sign 'toilet' to your boss when you need to go

The DVD are in alphabetical order

At christmas you come home to find the dog coloured in red and green

All knifes are locked away

(A few from me and Ratchet for you)

You have to shower when something very very interesting is on tv or lots of random things are lobbed in with you, including a large beetle (yes with legs not wheels) :blink:

People do that to me all the time...there's either a lot of autism about or... No it's unthinkable.
