I know its not right but I had to hold my hand over my mouth to keep from laughing....

my daughter has profound autism and barely speaks. When she does its two or three word sentences. She will bring me a cup and say drink please. Or Say go nite nite. Things like that. She is 7 btw.
So tonight she is watching Beauty and the Beast and her 5 year old brother, just to antagonize her is walking back and forth in front of the screen. she is crying and groaning and kicking her feet and getting upset and I asked him a couple of times to stop and to please sit down and watch the movie and to be nice to his sister. So he sits down, for about 5 minutes then gets up and does the same thing.
Out of the blue my daughter yells at the top of her lungs "Move out of the way Stupid!"
I almost dropped my cup of tea. I didn't want to laugh because obviously that was mean to say but to hear that from her was one of those priceless moments.
I did tell her that wasn't nice and don't call your brother stupid but I was secretly giggling just for the fact that she actually said that. Show that she can speak when she really wants to get her point across.

  • I have had many moments where I had to balance between the "That's not OK" and "You go, boy!" with my 13 yo autistic son. He is 13 and my 3 year old has better speech skills, but there are times he is so typical that I just have to cheer! At those times, I usually opt for the cheering, but temper it with a "Great sentence, but can we pick a nicer word next time?"

  • This made me smile too. There have been MANY times I have had to hide my laughter from my kids. One of the best things about being a parent.
