I try to find the humor in everything. It’s just how I cope and it’s not always easy but it’s something that truly believe is worth the effort. ☺
I want to share a picture because this is one situation that I find humor in because it’s so classic and innocent. If you have a child with Autism and/or sensory processing issues, you probably won’t need an explanation for what you see..
This is what I find in random places around the house, shortly after Emmett arrives home from school.
It’s totally a sensory thing and has to do with not being able to tolerate clothes on his skin. The moment he gets home from school, his shoes and socks are off his feet and on the floor.
On the tougher days like today, it’s like he just walks right out of his clothes and goes on with his afternoon. 😁
This is quite a common thing in our household, at least for Emmett. It’s not uncommon at all for his school clothes to come off and for him to spend the rest of the day in his underpants.
We don’t battle this unless someone’s coming over because he wears his clothes all day long. When he comes home, he needs to be free of them for awhile.
Truthfully, he’s doing much better because he’s tolerating clothes for longer and longer periods of time.
It’s just one of those thing you’ll find relatively common in an Autism house. ☺
