And the funny thing is, she isn't thinking in terms of presents for other people, except when it comes to DH. She's her normal Aspie self and thinking of all the things SHE wants, but she's also thinking of her dad. Today she was asking me every 5 minutes what I thought he might want..."Mom, you think Daddy would like a new hammer thingy? Can you talk to Santa about that for me?" or "Mom, you think Dad wants a new truck? I can't afford a truck, but maybe you can..." or "Mom, can I get Daddy a cat? He likes cats, we can name it Chuckles after Grandpa Chuck. He's Daddy's dad ya know...." or "Mom, I think Daddy wants a new house, a big one with one of those garages that are entirely seperate buildings. They make 'em like that sometimes." I had to really refrain from just shouting "SHUT UP!!!!". I really have to remember not to talk about Christmas anymore in front of her. I just wonder why she's zeroing in on her dad. I'm gald she's thinking about someone besides herslef for once, but SHEESH! I need ear plugs.
