Yeah, so, my mighty, mighty good boy Calvin’s preschool had a pajama day today. Just in case you don’t know what that is, basically, all the kids wear their pajamas to school. It’s pretty obvious. GAWD.
Anyway, this morning, my mighty, mighty good man David got Calvin out of the pajamas he actually slept in and put him in a different pair, because we’re so fancy. He told Calvin that it was pajama day, and that for today only he could wear his pajamas to school.
Autistic people don’t really like change all that much. Change is a big deal, but Calvin is pretty laid back and a really good sport. Calvin seemed like he was on board with wearing pajamas to school, but right when they were getting ready to leave, Calvin ran into his room and came out with some pants.
“I want to wear pants. Calvin can’t wear pajamas to school,” he said.
We tried to explain that he could wear pajamas to school today if he wanted.
“I want to wear pants,” he replied. “I can’t wear pajamas to school.”
We tell him every day to get dressed so he can go to school. He just couldn’t understand. Why would you wear pajamas to school? It makes no sense. We didn’t make a big deal of it.
“That’s fine. Let’s put on pants,” we told him.
We put his pajamas in his cubby, just in case he changed his mind.When David went to pick him up from school, Calvin ran up to him and asked him if he would help him put on his pajamas. So, he did. Then Calvin walked up behind his teacher and tapped her on the back.
“I’m in my pajamas,” he said. And then he started dancing for her. He was really showing off his pajamas. He is such a funny, little guy.
