My son has autism, he is 5 turning 6 next July. We always knew he was different from a very early age. He was obsessed with writing the letters of the
alphabet constantly when he was 16 mos. old. I have no pictures of the sun or flowers, just letters upon letters. He knew all of them prior by sight
but taught himself to write upper case by then, and then mastered lower case shortly after. Needless to say he`s always been very smart in a kind of
`Raymond`from the movie Rainman kind of way. He`s read books since he was 3 years old and looks at puzzles or objects much different than I or his
ANYWAY, my point is....he`s pretty damn smart. He has always seemed very intuitive as well, regarding people or feelings. He has also always had
nightmares. He is a very happy boy during the day, but at night never has happy dreams. Usually he dreams of some sort of fireball. (his words).
Tonight when I put him to bed though (out of the blue) he said that when we go camping there would be a big whirl-wind, and then a giant blue
footprint would come down on us.
Now this is nothing like I`ve ever heard him speak of before. I didn`t even know he knew the term whirl-wind because he had a speech delay and didn`t
even speak until 3 years old. Greatly improved now, but still! He was very serious and somber. What on earth could a whirl-wind and a blue footprint
coming down on us mean....I know you all don`t know him, but I take his thoughts seriously for a reason. He`s not only brilliant but my baby boy who
is very special. Thanks in advance for any imput!
