Special Needs Blog Hop

AutismLearningFelt


I just realized I missed it last week. :( Bummer.

This Weeks Topic:  Tell us a funny memory involving your child or children.

For somebody who doesn't have Alzheimer's, I have the worst memory in the world. I'm not kidding.... in the world... so, I have no memories of my children. It's kind of sad, actually. Luckily, however, I've been writing about them on various online forums for the past 8 years. So... I can just copy and paste! Here are 2 things I've written in the past about Child 1:
Child 1, his tutors and I all went to the fire house today; they've been working on his pretending skills and they've been doing "Firefighter," so this was our research assignment, to see an actual fire house, the real engine, the real hose, etc. Child 1 was totally unthrilled, he just wanted to run back and forth in front of the giant trucks and for some reason was terrified that if he got on one it would start up and ride away.

After our tour, the very nice firefighter woman who had been very patient the whole time asked Child 1 "is there anything else you want to see?" and Child 1 says....

"I want to see a fire."
We're at Costco and hubs got a smoothie. Child 1 asks him what it is, and hubs had just enough time to say "This is called a, uh...." before Child 2 knocked it out of his hand and onto the floor. So, that's what Child 1 called it!

"He knocked the Uh onto the floor!" "Oh, no, what happened to the Uh?" and then when I got another one "Can I have the cup of Uh, now?"

LMAO! I really love the stories--especially the second one! That is too funny!

Tammy said...

I love that. ROFL. Our kids can be so literal at times. Hi from the blog hop.

Jen said...

Well, really, he was missing out on the most exciting part! The FIRE! Did the firefighter give you the "look"? HA!
The UH story reminds me of my son. He can't say the word playground very well, and hubbie said one day, "call it "playground", and so now he thinks the name of the playground is "callit playground"...HA!

Kimberly said...

LOL! I've never read either of those before! Child 1 rocks!

Big Daddy Autism said...

I love UH.

Blessed2BaMommy said...

"Uh"... sounds good; he may start something there. Great stories!

I had my dh & other children help me with "memories"; mine is shot too.

"I want to see a fire" - brilliant answer. It just makes sense. Child 1 is too cute. Gotta love how literal kids can be.

Lynn said...

Pyro in the hizzy!!! I so need an uh right now.

tulpen said...

Perfectly logical, wanting to see a fire. So lame that it wasn't part of the tour. LAME.

Happy13 said...

Nice. I'd like to request an Uh with vodka please.

Varda said...

Those are both hysterical stories! I could use an Uh right about now, myself.

Visiting from the blog hop, babe. Hippity hop hop.

I really love all the stories this week! :) And I have a bad memory too..if it wasn't for photos and my journal.. I would be so lost in the world! *L* (stopping by from the hop)

Life as the mother of 4 said...

LOL at the UH.... that had to be a moment even though it was spilt on the floor. Thanks for joining in the Blog Hop this week.

Erica said...

Well, it's logical that if he gets to see a firetruck then he should get to see a fire too. LOL I think that I might go get myself an UH today. Very cute.
Stopping by on my through the blog hop.
Hugs,
Erica
