Andrew wasn't autistic, just thought your son might enjoy that type of toy.....

Brenda,

Neill is not fond of that kind of play. He would rather I sing/dance or talk with him. He likes the one on one stuff like Andrew may
have liked when he as about one or two. I was thinking kid's music but I have several cd's and he doesn't like them all that
much. I think he likes Country but then maybe that is what I like. He has a big therapy ball that he likes that has little nubbies
on it but maybe something a different color and texture might make the little guy happy. I just took about 10 pics of him bouncing
on that ball with a white plastic collinder that has lots of holes. He thinks that is the best toy whenever I take it out to drain something.
Thanks for jogging my thoughts.

Handmade or made of glass....both are on their way to you Brenda.

I am looking for the perfect gift for my son Neill. He is autistic and takes forever to get used to a
new toy. Any ideas Santa or Elves?

I wonder if Neil would like those toys where toy put a ball in one end and it rolks down and around a track and comes out the other end? Or a small keyboard?

I bought my sister a rosary made of pearls that was stunning but I don't think they would go with
your gun...sticking with the brown wooden Italian ones for you! Hope you love them!

I would like some new mittens as gloves make my hands cold. Nothing too fancy please.

Granted, I found some amazing hand felted woolen mittens in beautiful colors. They're really nice, but not too fancy.

I would like to go on a retreat, alone, no demands, just God, silence and nature.

Eileen have you ever tried Angelina Sings? www.youtube.com

When my son was little he was very hyper & when he heard the rosary it was an instant calming effect & I really like Angelina's version of the rosary. I found my copy at a church bookstore here. Let me know if you need help trying to find out how to get a copy. Sending you my hugs & prayers. Brenda

Brenda,

I listened to the youtube that you sent me and I will look at our paraclete tomorrow after a morning meeting. I should
specifically look for the rosary by Angelina Sings? It looks like she has up to 22 videos. Tomorrow I will investigate and
I thank you for your kindness.

Believing people like you are a gift,

Eileen

Kathy, Thank you for the mittens and you are killing me with humor!
When the boys were little, we had one of those toys from a specialty company.
You are talking about a boy who ate fireplace stones when we first moved here
to this house and suffered with a stomach ache for two days unbeknownst to his mother until
they came out the opposite end! He does like that sound and now I do remember that bubble
gum toy for toddlers that popped when they walked with it and maybe that sound would enter-
tain him. Good thinking Kathy and Eileen!

Thanks you for your suggestion and the many laughs Kathy.

Eileen
