Ha! I saw that little girl in the kissing picture! Best part of the whole wedding
I saw clips of her later and honestly, I thought, "Oh I wonder if her parents know yet that she's on the spectrum." Wow. I've got it on the brain so much, I see it everywhere. I would be the worst diagnostician ever. =)
I saw that and was like "yup, we've got another one!!!" and then I was like, "Gawd, give that girl some noise reducing headphones, my son would have flipped out by now!!!"
It's so funny how we all see it but others can't!! That is my Joshua; when there is any noise around that he thinks is way to loud!!!oxo
I thought the same thing!
I thought the same thing as well but to be perfectly honest, just because a kid can't hack the noise of 500,000 plus people a helicopters does not necessarily put her on the spectrum. I think a lot of neurotypical 3 year old kids would be scared in that situation.
I'm sure you would make her wear that stupid shrubbery around her head too.
Lol @ “shrubbery ". Monty Python right? That picture is too funny and sad at the same time. That is exactly how my DD looks at every party when they sing Happy birthday..... she HATES it!
I noticed the girl doing that in the kissing picture, and my first thought was she looked like my daughter at the age! I didn't see the wedding, but considering it was during the royal couples first public kiss as husband and wife, I'm sure the noise level was pretty loud. It might have been somewhat justified! But it did remind me of my daughter! That's for sure!
fingers in the ears?? A girl after my own heart :)
@Dana: Totally. Truth be told, Audrey wouldn't have made it past the stiff dress and the scratchy headdress!
That's Wills' God daughter.
I saw pics of that afterwards, too! Poor girl - I can only imagine how loud it all was between the bells and the crowd!
Looks like we all thought the same thing! I think Audrey would've held out for that cake!
So, I wasn't he only one thinking that when I saw that child! I saw very little of the wedding, only a couple of snippets and this was one of them.xx Jazzy
With any luck, she had a someone who got her a vitamin water/goggle equivalent.
I bet she'd want the cake to be cupcakes with purple icing and that she wished she could have worn pink instead of white.
Im with Dana - could be ASD could be SPD or could just be a NT child who was overwhelmed by bloody loud planes overhead/roar of crowd of thousands.
A piece of royal trivia here - do you know there were 2 wedding cakes? The official one was white icing, tiers of fruit cake, traditional etc. The other one was to William's favourite recipe, a giant chocolate fridge cake (you know the type? melted choc, crushed biscuits, raisins etc?)Do you think she's p*ssed off because she's been told she has to watch some stupid kiss before she gets cake? Picture a 3 year old with a hunk of melting choc fridge cake and a white dress...
I LOVE this picture. This would totally be my daughter, except she'd be shrieking as well.
New follower, I have a four year old cake sniffer. My NT daughter is 6 and named Audrey as well. I think she's more trouble than her brother who's on the Spectrum. Been enjoying listening to WTF too, two episodes in so far. Love your 'spin' on Autism, other blogs that are too serious make me take to drinking. Have a good weekend.
I can so relate to this child.
I had to laugh as well, this is exactly what my son would have done, too.
It's what my daughter would have done too -- my neurotypical daughter, who happens to hate loud noises. My spectrum daughter, on the other hand, would have been off running through the crowd.
