This is what I came down to this morning. Actually I went upstairs to get Jonathan a pair of socks. He was supposed to be finishing his breakfast and taking his medication. Ideally he would've so moved onto the next steps and packed his backpack to be ready to walk out the door to the bus.

When I was upstairs with Faith, it was suspiciously quiet downstairs. I kept calling down, "Jonathan, are you eating breakfast?" He called up assuring me that he was.

So I was surprised when I walked into the kitchen to see him standing on a glass end table with his face in the clock.

"What are you doing?"

"I wanted to see if the minute hand actually moves. Guess what? It does!"

I would really like to understand what goes on in his mind. Last week "out of the blue" he wanted to know, "Do you ever wonder how a calculator adds numbers?"

I said, "No. I never wondered that. Why?"

"Because I wonder."


  1. That's awesome! I actually understand that. I've done it! LOL

    My son's tendencies come out socially. He was sobbing because he was having trouble downloading something to a flashdrive. Calmed down. Ok.

    THEN we took him on his bicycle. VERY, very stressed, but he did it.

  2. P.S. Hi Corrie!! I'm following you too!

  3. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I really liked your comment and it is so nice to talk with other Mom's going through the same issues. Sounds like you are doing a great job with your son. It certainly does take vigilence to get our kids what they deserve. I don't understand why the constant uphill battles with schools. I keep hearing the same story from all parents. But in the end our hard work, and fighting for what our kids need does pay off in that they get to be productive members of society. If we just sat back and let the public school system dictate to us what our kids needed it is a scary thought to think where they would be.

  4. Thanks for following this blog too. I guess since I'm picking up followers, I need to pay more attention to it.

    This is a good thing. I've had some other things I've wanted to write which don't pertain to Jonathan, Asperger's, ADHD or Anxiety. This is why I started this blog, as an outlet for those ideas, but then I got caught up in my other blog and other things.

    Thanks for stopping by and encouraging me to do what I set out to do. :-)

  5. What a cute story, you know things that we have never thought of. Sounds like he really likes to feed his brain, which is so cool. Now he's got me thinking!
    Oh yeah I am now a follower look forward to reading more. Your son reminds me of my daughter doctor's are still trying to figure whats going on with her. I am going to read about Asperger's Syndrome
