Confessions of a Mom With an Aspergerized Teenager!

The last few days the cat has been trapped behind the washer mewing helplessly until somebody pulls the washer out and releases him. We have had this cat almost an entire year and it has never displayed any desire to take a leap behind the washer into the deep dark abyss. Suddenly the temptation has it seems.

Funny thing, though, the cat is never trapped in this condition when the eldest boy is not present. The eldest boy may even be caught "rescuing" the cat on occasion......things that make you go hmmmmm.

When questioned, of course, this was an absurd idea that I had conjured up. It really amazes me how somebody can twist something around so flawlessly almost making you think you really are crazy. It astonishes me daily.

Mysteriously, the cat's intrigue with washer diving has suddenly vanished. I suppose the fiasco is not as fun when, "the cat is out of the bag"...that was bad, I know!

From the journal of an exasperated parent of an aspy!

and the journey continues............along with the continuous prayers for understanding, wisdom, and patience....
