How to wear your clothes…as told by J

Every day before school we go through our routine.  I tell J to go to the bathroom and take off his pull-up, put it in the trash and then put on his clothes.  Depending on the day, I either let him pick out his clothes from the dresser or I get them for him.  then I put all 3 pieces in the bathroom and he often comes out dressed.  Some days he is more distracted than others.

Here is what happened today when I yelled asked politely “Are you dressed yet?”

And 5 minutes later……


And after we played a game of “Does it belong on my knees?  How about my feet? My toes”  Me: “How about OVER your toes?”

“I’m all dressed up mommy!”

ummmmm not so much honey.

What could I do?  I just laughed and took pictures.  Even under the clothes he is saying “Cheese and Pickles” while waiting for the flash.  He did finally get completely dressed with shoes and everything.

  1. Love it! As frustrating as these times can be they are great memories in the making. 🙂 Kudos to you for seeing it with a sense of humor.

  2. What a wonderful opportunity to connect with him and share some joy together- exactly what kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders need. Bravo to both of you for creating this!

  3. These are priceless! And now I have some good ideas of how to make it more fun when Nik **doesn’t** quite get it the first time (or three or four…). 🙂
