A Kid on the spectrum with a sense of humor
Mother’s Day 2015, Yaakov, my son with Aspergers, got me a Mother’s Day card that read on the front a good mom let you lick the mixer.
When you open it up it says a great mom turns it off first.
After reading the card I said, “I guess I’m a great mom after all!”
He replies, “except for the one time when you didn’t turn it off. That’s the reason I was in speech for years.”
I couldn’t help but laugh and reflect on the fact that at one point in his life he can’t even make a joke.
Now he makes me laugh and smile everyday.
Who said kids with autism do not have a sense of humor! I hope all you mommies had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
