My kids with #Autism have some unique and even weird interests

My kids are a little weird sometimes and I mean that in the most loving way imaginable. I love my boys but they can have some really weird behaviors and even weirder fascinations. O_o
My boys have some pretty common likes and dislikes. 

They love video games and hate their vegetables. I imagine that they share many of the same likes and dislikes as any other kid, Autism or not.  Sometimes though, I wonder where exactly some of their more unique interests come from. 

One such unique/weird interest is their desire to clean out the couches. 

It’s not like the couches are dirty or in desperate need of cleaning, although sometimes that is the case.  :O

For them, cleaning out the couches is like some kind of adventure or treasure hunt. They have been literally hounding me for the last few days to gut the couches and then vacuum them. 

I was finally able to move around enough today that we were able to attack the couches.  The boys had a really good time.  I suppose that I should be grateful because this is something that really benefits everyone and cleaning the couches is fun instead of work. 

My boys are awesome and I just find it interesting to explore their weird or unique interests.  :-)

Lost and Tired

I'm Rob Gorski and I started this blog in January 2010 as a means of sharing my family's real life journey raising 3 boys on the #Autism Spectrum.
It's important for people to understand what Autism can really be like and the impact it has on the family. We aren't a TV show and there are no actors. This is our struggle, our journey...and it's all true.

I am "Lost and Tired" and
this is "My Reality #Autism".
