How Insightful.....

A dear friend recently gave me this wonderful book. "all cats have asperger syndrome" by Kathy Hoopmann. Two out of my four kids are borderline Aspergers. They are not actually on the spectrum, and they are very functional and enjoyable kids. But they are so close to the spectrum that they have many Aspergers specific personality traits. Our family has learned to embrace their unique and quite remarkable way of looking at the world, but sometimes when we are out and about their behavior raises a few eyebrows.

My friend happened upon this darling book and was so impressed with its simple, yet very real and to the point way of summing up Aspergers children for those who don't quite understand. I fell in love with this clever piece of literature just a few pages into the book. It compares cats and their behavior to that of kids with Aspergers. It was so spot on, and you know what,...I am now convinced that my cat does in fact have Aspergers also. :)

Just wanted to recommend this insightful and delightful book to....well.....everyone!!

Thank You Jen E. for thinking of me.

What a wonderful thing to give to the un-knowing public. I watched a whole show about Autism (which I know is much more severe than Aspergers), but it made me more determined to never judge a screaming child in public, or the parent again. It really opened my eyes.
What a wonderful friend you have. : )
Also, your little Snow White is precious beyond words!!!
