It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

My Prince & The Big Guy Himself!
So GP goes out w/ Gino and comes home in a flurry of absolute delight; he is giddy with excitement and just looking at him I think he is looking more and more like a cat who has just eaten the Tweety Bird. After a bit of prompting he spits the bird out...
GP:"I talked to HIM!"
Mom: "Who?"
GP:"HIM!"
Mom: "Who is HIM?"
GP:"SANTA!"
At which point he is stimming , he is flapping like a bird about to take flight, and smiling so much I could not see his eyes. He is so excited I just could not help being excited for him. He continues his retelling of this adventure. He tells me he told HIM; he told HIM what he wanted for Xmas. Then I ask him," And what DO you want for Xmas?" To which he says, "NO! I already told HIM!" and he leaves me standing there, holding his coat, while he proceeds to pick up his dog and go straight upstairs to his room. LOL! I ask Gino, "What did he say to Santa?" and Gino, in typical male fashion says, "I dunno!", to which I reply, "That's not good!"
Let the holiday guessing game begin! LOL!

Hey! I didn't realize that your son had ASD!

I'm a Sp.Ed. teacher and an ABA home Therapist!!!

It's so nice to see a positive interaction with Santa! For many kids that's near impossible!!!!!!

Merry Christmas

AHA - the prying and hinting begins in earnest now I suspect!! Good luck getting that list.

a little time tested hint for you. Tell your son he needs to write his letter to Santa and you will take it to the elves special mailbox. Just in case Santa forgets what he was told the elves will have the list and can start getting things ready for Santa midnight ride. After all it is the elves who do the work packing the sleigh and Santa sees so many children he might make a mistake on a order or two. I tell my granchildren this every holiday, they make the list and I share the info with their Mom and Dads.

you could always say something like "you know Santa sees lots of little boys and girls, and you saw him SO early this year! Let's just write him a little note, thank him for visiting with you and gently remind him what you wanted for Christmas. Just to cover our bases here!" hehe glad my little ones are too young, but the three year old holds Santa up to SuperHero status at the moment. I better get ready for the pictures!

Great idea from Bonnie. It's worth a try, huh?

Just don't faint when he tells the elves that it's a Porche he wants...and not the dinky toy one either. *wink*

Joanna said...

That is so funny! Why would he need to tell you or Gino? He told "Him"!! LOL!!! I can just see him being so excited, too! He is the best:) I like Bonnie and Lisa's ideas....might have to use them myself!

Great pic of GP and Santa. Maybe he will let it slip and tell you the big secret! LOL! It is wonderful that GP had such a good time. Love it! Karen

That is so cute. Hopefully he will spill the beans.

Jen in NY said...

LOL! I like the idea of getting a letter out to Santa. That should help! Great picture of GP and Santa...my kids are too afraid to sit on his lap!!

Jess said...

I like Lisa and Bonnie's idea! I wouldn't have thought of that! But a thank you card!! that’s Brilliant!

I have Asperger's, and a grandchild who has severe autism. I smile so much when I have read your entries about your son, this one is awesome!!

Hi Brenda,

My sister has an 11 yo son who wants a particular DVD for Christmas. When Deb told him the DVD wasn't out yet, he said "Don't worry Mum, Santa will find it"
I guess you will both see what happens. I wish you luck.
Hugs, Sharon

Patti said...

Okay I've read all the comments now and think the letter idea is by far the best. Tell him that HIM sees so many children that sometimes he just forgets what one child has told HIM so he really needs to get that letter written real fast as a just in case.
Loved the story. Bet next year you go with your DS to see HIM!!!
Lots of Love
