Mother's Day Laugh

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!
