Echolaliac Pearls of Wisdom: Episode 4

Note: See “Echolaliac Pearls of Wisdom: Episode 1” if you need a definition of echolalia as it relates to persons on the autistic spectrum.

Pearl 4: The Prince comes in from playing outside, covered with mud. He looks me straight in the eye and says, “Mom, you need Oxyclean.” No truer words were ever spoken!

Source: The Prince has a new source for his pearls of wisdom: TV commercials. In the past, we have limited him watching “real” tv and pretty much stuck to dvd’s and kid’s channels that do not have commercials. But lately, I have let him watch The Discovery Channel and Nick Jr., both of which have commercials. He seems fascinated most by the ones for gadgets, cleaning items, cooking utensils. I guess it could be worse, he does not seem to care about the toy commercials!
