On the Spectrum #100!: Sharing

(click to enalrge)

Oh, my god! I've made it to 100! I never thought I'd make it this far! (Yay!)

OK, back to the strip...

Believe it or not, Jacob really is every bit as cute as I draw him here; much more so actually.  That being said, he can still be a real brat sometimes! LOL.

The above story actually came from his teacher, during a Paerent-Teacher conference, late last year.  She told me what happened, and I immediately thought, "I've got to use that!

Hee! I've seen the same thing oh so many times over with my own. That is why your comic is so good-because spectrum or not..most parents have lived these things. Everyone can laugh. congrats on the first 100 and very much looking forward to the second!

Congrats on the milestone! We should have fireworks or something! Oh - an m&m's . . .definitely m&m's!

Congrats on 100! I think this is something we can all relate too. Even my NT kids can do this :)

As soon as Brother Bear was big enough to snatch a toy from Goldilocks, he did, every chance he got. And every time, GL would shout, "Mom! Make him stop! He's sharing!"

I'm glad you made it to 100! And it's yet another post I can relate to.

If you think about it, though, this particular interpretation of "sharing" makes some sense--considering how we so often teach our children to share by taking toys away and giving them to someone else.
