I Guess I Can't Tie Him Up and Lock Him In the Closet Anymore

My son loves Indiana Jones, and has for years. In fact you could say it is an obsession. In autism-speak, it is called "perserveration"..meaning he hyper-focuses on a subject and doesn't let go. He has had a fedora like Indy's for years. He has a costume that he wears,and I smile indulgently. He is very excited that the new movie is being released. It has breathed new life into his Indy preoccupation. This sight is what I happened upon this morning. Apparently, he conned his big sister into tying his hands so that he could escape, via The Indiana Jones Handbook.

As you can see, he managed to escape. I don't think I could do this. Next time, I guess we'll hog tie him. Maybe a career in escape-magic will pay for college!

T, who swears I live in a sit-com sometimes

Wow our boys are alike in their love for Indy.

I have a love/hate relationship with that fedora. Thankfully it's more love now than before.

I didn't know it was called 'preservation.'

Though the word sounds like 'preserve' which is exactly what my son's costumes do for him - well specific ones like Indy. He got to see the movie on opening day - is ecstatic about it. He's quoting it up a storm already. (Don't know how he does that with just one viewing!).

Thanks so much for sharing this with me. I LOVE knowing I'm not the only mom with an Indy kid.

Did you see the SeattlePI story of the guy who is all about Indy? He named his son, after some kefuffle with his wife, Harrison. He did want to name him Indiana, but his wife said, um... not so much. no.

LOL. :)
