Thomas the train is far too young for your son....

...Said the cashier at Wal-mart to me casually.
 
Timothy was not with me this night, I was Christmas shopping alone (gasp!  Holy Hanukkah it does happen once in a blue moon) and had this amazing Thomas the train advent calendar in my cart. 
 The older than me woman behind the cashier, had remarked on the calendar and then asked me how old my son was; as she had a three year old grandson who she had bought one for as well.
 
Had this been several years ago I would have gotten my back up pretty quickly and possibly said something not quite kosher to her, but not now, not this night.  She spoke so matter-of-fact.  I had to.  I just had to say something.  I couldn't let it go. 
 
Holy schnikes batman, she really didn't know how callously she could be perceived.  But does anyone really?  We have all become so damn politically correct, panties in wad, tongue in cheek, that really you can't have an opinion about anything, to anyone, anywhere at any time.......
 
Back to my little story....
 
I thought for a minute and then said, "Timothy really likes Thomas.  I don't think he cares what the other kids think".  Inside I was laughing, cause really he is kinda oblivious.  In an awesome way.
 
The woman  shook her head knowingly and replied, "Oh he will.  The others will make fun.  Maybe you should think about getting a different one? "
 
I smiled a her and said, "Thanks but no thanks.  He will love this one.  You see, my son is an exceptionally special little dude.  He is 7 and has autism.  He really won't care what others think because he just doesn't connect like that socially.  
 
Her mouth dropped and I could see the panic in her eyes as they began to water.  Before she could speak, I said, "Its ok.  How could you have known?  How could you have known he has the mental functioning of a two year old?  He loves Thomas and he would not be offended in any way by your comments and neither am I.  Really."
 
A tear slid down her cheek and of course I welled up too.  (Damn sympathy crier I am!  Never fails.)
She came out from behind the counter and hugged me.  She whispered "God bless you" in my ear and that was that.  I paid my bill and wished her a Merry Christmas.  Said perhaps next time I will bring the young sir by and say hello.
 
She smiled and said she would like that.
 
The next day I presented Mr. Timothy with his Thomas the train advent calendar.  And of course....he loved it.  Fist pump!





Wishing you and yours a wonderful new year!
Trish and Timothy.

  1. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com

    4. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
      My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
      My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
      My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

  2. My son adores Thomas too and I have had similar interactions with people over the years about what's appropriate. Though I have not been as lucky as you have to have that wonderful birthday invitation with the "let's make it work" letter and he rarely if ever is invited to anyone's birthday party. Not that he minds that, I just mind for him. Warmly, Seth psethbauer@gmail.com

  3. I am 18 years old. I do not have autism. I am a girl. For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine. People make fun of me ALL the time for it but I could care less. For my birthday this year I had a Thomas cake. I am 18 YEARS OLD and I had a Thomas the Tank Engine themed party. Once I hit about 7 years old, people would either; criticize my parents telling them they shouldn't let me play with those toys, or come up to me and tell me that they were boy's toys and I should get a doll or something girly.

  4. People are funny and constantly surprise me with thier innocent but ignorant comments. My favorite one was a senior lady who looked at my son closely and asked are you sure he has autism? He LOOKS NORMAL. I was in tears because i was laughing so hard. Sometimes all you can do is laugh.

  7. Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Ruth from the United States and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your ex husband or lover urgently? I wanna tell you that you need not to worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Dr Ogudugu who can really solve all your problems. Getting my lover back is what i can't imagine but when I was losing Jeff, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly but my Cousin told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the internet. I thought it won't work but i just tried to give this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Jeff was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, This is truly miraculous and the spell caster opened him up to know how much I love and needs him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know how much love we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact him on his email: greatogudugu@gmail.com thank you Dr Ogudugu in fact you are miraculous and may your gods ever reward you for your good deeds..Call +2348142250751

  8. What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Osemu who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Osemu for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Osemu is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Osemu helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours for he's going to prepare a spell for me. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: ( Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com ), Website: http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com, call and whats App him via +2348135254384 OR for more confirmation call or text me on my cell# +1 (914) 517-3229.

  9. I believe in destiny, I also believe I can express my pain or broken heart to anyone whom my instinct guides me to because am not weak or less a human regardless of the criticism I might face from close friends and family. It came to a point in life that I realized I have been losing important people in my life. Just within 3 years, I have already been in 14 relationships and none of them lasted for a month because of my toxic attitude. People keep coming and leaving, and I search for another replacement leaving behind moment we had together thinking that it was the best life to live, until it started to hurt me slowly and making me feeling like am dominated by an evil spirit.
    It is unexplainable how my instinct lead me to King Omituko love solution with this email: |omitukolovesolution@gmail.com| when the future was playing some tricks on me after I was conned by some known spell doctors. I never felt so happy until I tasted the powers of Omituko love spell. Contacting him for help really changed my life and liberated me from emotional bondage. I have now found true love and we have been dating for over 6 months, that’s why am sharing this touchy review. His love spell is simply amazing.

  13. My name is john emmanuel, from United states, i have been
    HIV positive and it is just like been through hell; well
    special thanks to God almighty for using Dr.agadaga, the
    greatest spell caster in curing my HIV disease. I was
    diagnosed of this disease in the year 2004. Although I was
    taking my medications I was not myself. Until a few weeks
    ago. My friend came to me and told me that he saw many
    testimonies on how a spell caster cured people HIV
    disease. Although I never believe in spell, I said to myself
    "seeing is believing" I took his name and searched it on
    GOOGLE, I saw many testimonies myself. Quickly, I copied
    his email: dragadagaspellcaster@gmail.com I emailed him, he
    gave me a form to fill which I did, then he called me and
    told me that he required some items in which he will use in
    casting a curing spell on me and he told me that it will cost
    me some money which i sent to him because I could not
    find the items. He bought the items and prepared a cure for
    me, then he have sent a parcel to me through courier
    delivery service. I paid the courier services, I got my parcel,
    it was a bottle of ointment as described by Dr.agadaga, After
    taking the ointment he told me to do a HIV test and the
    result came out negative. Quickly I called him and told him
    what happened he congratulated me. I promised to tell the
    world about him. You can contact via email:

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her.
