Grandson, 4, is a 'high functioning' (archaic term) autistic. He struggles with the need for cutlery, will only eat foods of a single texture, but can usually tell you some of the periodic table and knows what is a noun or a consonant when he watches Countdown.
Hence, he comes out with some stuff you just wouldn;t expect.

Now to go with his obsession with Countdown he has found on his tablet the Countdown game and has variously mithered all of us to buy it him, which we're not as he's just had a birthday, so we've been trying the usual tactics like "oh, they cost a lot of pennies, daddy will have to go to work some more".
This then is how it went down:
G/son "daddy, I'll go to work with you to earn pennies for this game"
SinLaw "well you can't there's big monsters there and they'll eat you up"
G/son - "well I can't have that, take grandad instead".
SinLaw "what about the monsters, they'll eat grandad?"
G/Son after a thoughtful pause "will he have bought the game before this happens?" :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Not only that he's learned the password for his mum's Amazon account, logged in and bought a load of apps for his tablet! We can't be mad because he has no concept of the value of money bless his heart.

Give it 10 years we'll be fighting his deportation to the US after he hacks NASA or some such :unsure::ROFLMAO:

When on holiday in Cornwall we always fish matches at a certain venue. The owners grandson who is Autistic, always accompanies him when weighing in. Last time we went the little lad was 8year old. He was in charge of the sheet and pen. A lot of pegs require two or three nets as most catches are well over 50lb. The little lad adds them up as fast as a calculator. Absolutely amazing to witness. And he is a lovely kid as well
