Everyone is Invited! (and grandma is paying)
Katie, like most children with autism, can get very fixated on a particular subject. This week it is Disney, so start packing your bags. She has decided that her Christmas wish is for the "whole family" to take a week long trip to visit Walt Disney World in Florida. Sounds great, right? Well, Katie wants EVERYONE to come, including both sides of the family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and sisters. And she wants Grandma to pay. Now, Grandma pretty much gives Katie what Katie wants, but I think I am going to have to nip this plan in the bud. I found Katie logged on to the internet, pricing out 10 bedroom houses to rent, airline fares, and weeklong Disney passes. For 30 people. And to make it even more interesting, she decided to invite Grandma's neighbors that she ran into at a party. So now we have 5 more people on the guest list. She also has sent emails out to everyone on her contact list to invite them along, and has asked her uncle to make everyone matching T-shirts to wear on our trip. Welcome to my Adventures in Autism!
