...the struggle to get him to wear something new.

Oh, but that isn't just asperger speaking. Both my boys think clothes are to hide nudity, so why change? Love the drawing though!

Perhaps it is better in a way than when they want only the latest and most expensive designer clothes?

Petra...thank you for your comment!
thankfully right now the younger brother doesn't care at all what he wears, so that makes it a bit easier :)

The Exton Gardener...you are very right about that. I may be missing these days when I find myself there!

Okay, this I can totally relate to. Annabelle (who has always had some sensory issues) prefers to keep her clothes forever and never where anything other than what she already wears. This does not work when a girl gets, well, breasts. She has to get new clothes--and she throws little fits every time you force her to go shopping, picking at the clothes and nearly crying and saying they feel weird. Oh, how I hate clothes shopping with this girl.

oh Melissa...
all I can say is that I know how that girl feels. (I myself have sensory issues) I remember screaming bloody murder for an hour every morning in high school because the sleeve had a wrinkle under the sweater (in the 80's when we all wore shirts with collars under our sweaters!) Even now I have a problem...here I am complaining that he will only wear the same thing every day since we bought it, and I am telling him I'm frustrated while wearing the same sweater for the 10th day in a row. (you know..it's comfortable and all of the other sweaters I had up to that point are no longer comfortable)
I'm afraid you are in it for the long haul until you marry her off :)
