I have stalled in writing this due to the fact I may get some negative feedback on this post. I do realize I am totally putting myself out there for criticism. I do hope you enjoy this and see the humor in it.
I will add I did ask my son, Jacob, if he remembered this. He said, “Yes,”
I followed up with the question, “Did I scar your childhood memories?”
He laughed and said, “No.”
Jacob did remind me of some details of this story that I had forgotten.
I am continuing the topic on sleep- or really lack of it. I assumed our sleepless nights would be few and far between over the years. I did not realize part of the disability of autism is that there is lack of sleep! Therefore that means we have had lots of sleepless nights. I calculated we had approximately been going on 7 years of this pattern.
One Christmas morning our oldest son, Jacob got up early. It felt like 1 A.M. He came to our room to announce, “It’s Christmas Day! I am ready to open my presents!”
I answered, “Okay. Go ahead. I will listen to you open them up.”
Brian said, “WHAT? You can’t do that! You can’t listen to him open up presents!!!”
I quickly gave my explanation, “What? I know what he got. I bought and wrapped the gifts!”
After a few drowsy moments, I got up and enjoyed watching Jacob open up his presents.
Enjoy another healthy dose of laughter from our home!
