Kyle Eating Junk Food: Then a Trip to the Supermarket. VIDEO & PICS

Here’s today’s 1 minute video blog post.  So the king has his appetite back… and on this Sunday afternoon he found pretty much the only 2 “junk foods” that we had in the house.

Sour Cream & Onion potato chips & Doritos.

There was only a 1/4 bag of chips and a 1/4 bag of Doritos left and he polished those off lickety split.

So then after this we went on a quick trip to the supermarket where we checked out the lobsters 

and got more chips and Doritos (they were both on sale!!)
And he wanted me to open a bag… So he ate another 1/2 bag of Doritos as we walked around the store…

Guess who ate the other 1/2 bag of Doritos in the store?  🙂 Me, of course. I’m still a teenage boy sometimes and I lose my sh-t when I get around that orange stuff. 

Anyway, after leaving a trail of orange crumbs around the store we both came home and cleaned our orange fingertips.

No, we don’t let him eat like this too often…

But when you’ve got a kid like my Kyle who’s got a history of losing appetite & losing weight (he once lost 10% of his body weight in a few weeks) you give him what he craves.

We “ride the hot hand” for as long as it lasts. 

Anyway, in addition to the junk he also ate some good stuff…tons of strawberries, blueberries, bacon, pancakes, and chocolate milk throughout the day.

Boy I can’t wait to see his poops tomorrow.

Oh wait, he’s got school tomorrow, so maybe the school will have the honor of witnessing that historic poop.

      If you are a parent with tough skin, such as myself, you ask said onlooker, "what are you staring/looking at?" If you are sure they are doing this, or address their parent if nearby and ask them to respond to their child accordingly. My other kids sometimes return the looks. Our world thankfully is becoming accustomed to kids on the spectrum and the ignorance is slowly fading away. ('Course the kid has autism, just like my nephew, niece, neighbor, sister, brother, friend, school mate, etc., etc., etc….
