Shaggydaddy once told me, ""Normal" just isn't good enough for my kids!" and it's stuck with me ever since!

I just shot coffee out of my noise. Ouch. but that is hilarious and awesome. I'ma tell ds, he'll love it. He'll say it to everyone he meets, I betcha.

I think when they get the search engine back up you just need to read a list of ShaggyDaddy's post. That oughta do it.

pardon my narcissism but here are a few of my self-favorites.

Quote:
Many times the only difference between having a weird kid and having a seriously expensive, heart breaking, time consuming, life altering psudo-medical problem is the word "Diagnosis".
Quote:
"Yes he will out grow it, after a certain age people will stop thinking they can control how he thinks and acts, so it won't be a problem anymore."
Quote:
Since I don't really know anyone who is "normal" I am pretty frightened by the prospect of trying to teach my son to be normal.
Quote:
"Autism Awareness" is the one and only cause of the "Autism Epidemic"
Quote:
What our kids do is not really our fault, but we as parents are uniquely positioned to solve problems that are not really our own.

My e-mail signature is, "Normal is just a setting on your dryer."

My DH's line regarding ASD is from Star Wars, "The Force runs strong in our family."
