    Just wanted to share with you.....
    Me and hubby went out for dinner last night...when we got home my oldest son hadn't bathed yet!
    He was waiting for us.....Any way, by the time he went to bath at 21h00 he was standing infront of the bath with his swimming cap on, his diving glasses and sunglasses over it, plus a snorkel! Pressious!!!!
    Dont know if this is something a NT child would do....dont have that reference, but we had a lovely giggle and much pleasure of enjoying him!

    difficult child 1 hasn't tried that yet but it wouldn't surprise me if he did. He does LOVE the water: showers with the water as hot as he can stand it with the drain plugged and then lays in it for another 1/2 hour after he's done washing. A hot shower is also one of his coping/relaxation strategies when he's anxious or upset.

    LOL! Aspies are lovely. I so enjoy their different way of thinking :)
