Guaranteed for five years: as soon as I pick up and organize toys that have been neglected and lying around for weeks, my son starts playing with them and makes another mess within an hour. I should start a series called “Life with Obsessive-Compulsive Mom and her Autistic Son.”
What I don’t understand is why he would completely ignore the clothes I lay out on the bed for him and instead pick something from the bottom of a neat pile of clothes. And how is it that a kid who wears the same shirt to school everyday wants a different pajama every night???
