Joshie’s gems

Standards are a matter of opinion “We’re going to a restaurant? A fancy one? Wendy’s? No? Oh you mean one of those fancy ones where you pay for your food after you’ve eaten it? Oooh nice!”


Conversation with Dad about the state of his room….

“If you picked up 10 toys a night, in 7 days you’d have picked up 70 toys Joshie!”

“Or you could just learn where to put your feet Dad?!” 

Thinking outside the box just like all his bloody toys 😉


Demonstrating the “Nike” meditation position apparently before school…


After a busy day, I mistakenly decided a shopping trip would be a good idea…

“When we get back to the car, you can borrow my stress ball if you want Mom?”

 Who says Aspies don’t have empathy 😂


After a bit of playtime with the pooch…

“Wow! Loki is a professional eyebrow wiggler”


Pick Joshie up from computer lab after school and he immediately launches into how his day’s been awful and he chews my ear off all the way back to my classroom about how he got 2 marks. “2 marks Mom! In one day! Can you believe it!” One apparently for “inappropriate dabbing” and the other for running in the cafeteria “I wasn’t even running! I told them I was fast walking but they wouldn’t change their mind”  Get back to the classroom and in an attempt to shut him up I look for his report card to see the teacher’s version of events. I can’t find it. “Well duh! I didn’t want to bring it as i thought if you found out, I’d be in trouble!” 😂😂

Must ask when is it appropriate to “dab” although as a 40 year old, i think the answer’s never…


Got an weird email from his teacher describing odd swallowing/choking issues with a satsuma he’d taken for snack…decided it must be a sensory autism thing or something. Ask him about it after school…

“Yeah, it felt weird and I nearly choked but then I realised if I held it in my mouth, I couldn’t talk and you know I’m trying to earn Express Bucks for the Treasure Tower (school reward system) so I didn’t swallow it until after academy class so I couldn’t talk. But my Academy teacher didn’t give me an Express Buck so my plan failed but Mrs C (his teacher) fell for it completely, she gave me one for being quiet…I only need 2 more now”

Makes perfect logical sense to him and I may be buying more satsumas if it means we can get a bit of peace 😂🍊

First off...I ain't no crafty person...if you've come for sewing tips, move along...nothing to see here. The occasional project for the kids where i tell them "to just hold it like that and people won't see that wonky bit". Altho maybe I am crafty in the "see if I can get the hubby to think it's his idea" sense. Yep! I'll admit I'm crafty there! But I am most definitely a Mom (and also a Mum as my eldest still prefers the English way to the American that my youngest has "toadally" embraced). And I love being their Mom! They are awesome kids. Chalk and cheese and peas in a pod! And they love bloody Minecraft. Building blocks, infinite possibilities, making mistakes but just starting again or trying a different way and a bit of fun altho I prefer good old country or 80's music to that soporific tune Minecraft drives me crazy with. Hence the clever pun. That and I couldn't think of a suitable Star Wars alternative.
