Aspie Teen’s Cackling Waking Me Up

On top of the new baby having his sleeping schedule mixed-up (he sleeps during the day and stays up all night), Aspie Teen’s cackling woke me up last night about  midnight.  From our bed, Hubby and I hear him cracking up before he busts into our room just dying to talk to us.

Well, he’s been at it again–watching crazy drive-thru pranks on YouTube.  The Teen gets completely obsessed with things (like all of us Aspies do I suppose) and then watches the same videos over and over again laughing harder each time he sees it.  Hubby and I had to get up several times last night to tell him to be quiet because he was laughing so hard, falling off the chair, and making such a ruckus he was going to wake up his brothers!

I thought I would share the wealth here and show you all just what was (and is–he’s been playing the video ALL day today) so funny.
