Autism 101

Woke up this morning to see this in MJ’s room. It’s been years since I’ve seen him line up his toys. He’s had those toy cars and other objects for years and still loves to have them around while he is watching TV or relaxing. I’m not sure if they are lined up in any specific order but I will be on the look out to see if he does this in the same way again. Oh if I could just get into his beautiful mind ❤️.


My Son Is Organizing??

Autism parents know that just because our kids line up toys or like things in a certain way, it doesn’t mean that they are neat most of the time.  So I found it quite funny when MJ showed me his videos while we were putting away his laundry.  He opened a drawer and said “Mommy look! I put my DVD’s together.”  I looked in his drawer and he had all of his “Wow Wow Wubbzy” and all of his “Yo Gabba Gabba” videos all neatly organized!  I was in shock.  He has never done anything like that before!  I laughed and laughed and told him that he did a great job organizing his videos.  Of course right after that he made a complete mess on the floor with some of his other toys lol…Go Figure!  Anyhow I am quite happy with this small step 🙂
