Blah.  Tired today.

I got up early because Colt woke at 530 ish and started playing in his room.  One of the more typical autistic traits he has is a need to constantly repeat lines from movies or television shows, particularly if he finds them funny.  Recently, he came across a commercial on YouTube for Cocoa Pebbles and just about fell of his chair laughing.

“Barrrrrrrney!  You ate my Cocoa Pebbles!”


Those two lines are his most favourite.  Last night from the time we got home until he fell asleep this was on constant repeat.  It’s annoying, to say the least when someone hollers one word over and over and you can hear it from any room in the house.


*twitch*  after the third straight hour I gathered up my best mommy voice and told him to please move onto a new line sometime soon.

“OOOH!” Said Colt with a dramatic pout.

“Fine.  Five more times then…”

*GRINS*  “WILLLLLLLLLLLLLLMAAAAAAAAAAA!” he began with renewed enthusiasm.

It is slightly better than some others he’s fixated on, in truth.  I just think my tolerance for yelling was all eaten up in his first two years when he never stopped screaming.  Sorry kid…you’re allotment is up until you’re 30.  lol
