I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I love to laugh.  My sense of humor has seen me through many a things. 

I was reading the post where a mom had commented that someone said that her child didn't look autistic....WTH   I have 3 boys on the spectrum so I have gotten my share of that myself. 

I like to get people going a little when they say something like that.  Here is how it usually goes down :)

Some busybody will usually say "What - Jonathan has Autism?  But he doesn't look like he has that!

I will look her straight in the eyes and say "What - you can't see it?  Look close -  you can't see it?"  I will then try to get her to look closer and see.

"NO?"   she says.

As serious as I can be, I say something like this.   "You must not know alot about autism. There is one distinguishing trait that all autistic people have.  It has be proven that all Autistic people are more beautiful than other people. You didn't know that?

Sometimes they get it but sometimes they don't.  Either way it makes me smile.

Have fun with it ladies, makes life sweeter!

LOL! Have fun girl!  I was actually told my son was the cutest out of all 7 boy grandkids and to be honest he is extremely handsome and mysterious looking it's like you crave more attention from him... =)

I love this response!  I'll have to remember it.  

Okay, I rarely post photos of my child, but here's one--bad haircut, but I still think he's beautiful! I guess all Mommas think this though :)

I love it!! Humor has gotten me through (and out of) a lot in my life, especially when I had to embrace what my son was. I have to admit, I may steal your line when I'm having a gloomy day and need a little pick me up.  :)

love it, I get this a lot with my Sam too, humour is so important, up there with breathing.  Will definitely use this when the next opportunity presents, thanks:)
