It’s no secret. My boys have one true love.
Autistic kids often are drawn to television because it is something that is visually stimulating and they can just get lost in it- like their own little world. We have no problems allowing the boys to get lost in Super Why! each day. It comes on right after lunch and then down they go for a nap. If there happens to be a particularly stressing day, a little DVR action gets things running smoothly faster than any other tactic.
Whyatt, Pig, Princess P and Red are part of the family. The first song I remember singing to the boys in the car in an attempt to get them to calm down was the Super Why! theme song…nothing else was coming to mind and Yogi Dad and I both broke out into that familiar tune. It worked!
When I was given the opportunity to check out the kids costumes at Wholesale Halloween Costumes, I balked at the idea. It’s not even close to Halloween and seriously…I’m not really in the market for boys costumes at the moment. On a whim I did a search for “Super Why! costume for boys“.
They had a Super Why! costume. I wondered to myself if they would even notice…certainly NOT. But, maybe?
So I ordered up the Super Why! costume.
One day I pulled out the package as we were sitting down to solve the days problem with our quartet of storybook friends. I looked at Wyatt and I asked him “what is this?” In his small voice, with a smile curling on his lips, he said “Why!” Then he burst into uncontrollable giggles as I put the costume on him (the eye mask was a no-go), and there it stayed for the rest of the afternoon. Or at least until the next diaper change.
The following day was Lincoln’s turn and they are both LOVING the chance to be “Why”.
Especially the cape. All boys gotta have a cape!
It’s just another little breakthrough for us. They may not be dressing up like cowboys or building forts, but my boys are getting the chance to dress up like their hero! As a Mom of boys, I’m just figuring out that you don’t need to wait around for Halloween to do that.
