for the last few days ds has been doing lots of pretend play pretending to ride his bike off to work and to town or the market paying an imaginary shop person and saying thank you for bundle of toys in his arms

knocking on an imaginary door to come into my home i have to open the door to let him in

anyway ne wone was he wants to be me and im him so i started making the noises he does when his on one eerr eerr eerr eerr

anyway he says no bubblaboy dont go eerr eerr eerr eerr use your words lol made me laugh so much

he actually does listen to me when i tell him this grin

he also does a lot of why questions so i was going why why why and he said what' with all the questions blush he really does listen lol

dont know where al this has come from but he spent all day yesterday just playing feeding a doll fake shopping etc im so glad its all coming along so well but shocked also as his normally so literal about things

lol he has been so different last few days its great always such a literal little thing thats not a door thats air etc now his knocking in the air saying you have to open the door its great

also getting a paper butterfly to ask me if i was ok etc asking me questions

naming things would never name anything would stump him that question now his saying names not understandable but usually clams up and says i don't know

and again the other day pointed and told me it was his friends mum there never taken notice of who else is about at all and would ignore anyone close by

The other week we were in a hurry to collect ds1 from school. Ds2 suddenly stopped and refused to move. I told him to hurry up, and he replied, with one hand in the air and the other to his ear (spelling as he said it) "two mimits, I'n on a phone" grin. Cheeky monkey.

My DS is 5 (ASD dx aged 3) and had never used imaginary play until about a year or so ago when he started pretending to clear up something off the floor & was saying "that's naughty, don't poo/wee/sick on the floor" and also "eat your dinner". When I asked him who he was talking to, he said "Lizard". He could tell me where this imaginary lizard was sitting, what colour it was and even it's name !!!
He still occasionally talks to his lizard now. grin

that is brilliant!!!

DS is like this, very imaginative, very literal. We watched a cartoon about a termite today and he asked why the termite was licking his lips when he looked at a wooden house. And I said "he's excited about eating it, to him it looks tasty. you'd lick your lips if you saw something you wanted to eat too!" and he said "NOT WOOD" DH and I laughed so hard.

lol hidtl bless him

cjones ds is just 4 and just started to do imaginary maybe its something to do with the age but thats fab isn't it when all of a sudden there not so literal

ds names things now would never name something a rabbit was a rabbit a dog a dog etc now he gives them names none i can recognise but its a start

grin at "on the phone", 5inthebed!

whenever i'm giving ds into trouble, he says "what you talking about?" and sounds so like the wee guy from Diff'rent Strokes that it's difficult not to laugh.

he loves changing the lyrics of songs and the other day it was "Old Macdonald had a farm", but with all the family names instead of animals. With his own name he sang "with a talk talk here and a talk talk there..."
but with his dad's he sang, "with a lube lube here and a lube lube there" [hmmm] no idea where he got that from!!!
