A. Too young to endure his predicament! Not even the number four hangs yet over his door.
Q. He is social and by definition [in my expert, unqualified opinion] therefore, he is not autistic.
A. Although we greatly appreciate all input our predicament leads us to place more faith in those people who have earned the right to decorate their business cards and email signatures with pretty letters after their respective name; those that begin with ‘M’ and ‘D’.
Q. Why do you not discipline him more? His behaviour in social situations will improve. A good spank when I was knee high to a grasshopper taught me respect, and would end all this nonsense (half-hearted attempt to point and gesticulate in some vague direction of Lucky whilst he ‘enjoys’ another meltdown).
A. See previous answer.
Q. How do you get Lucky to eat?
A. The ability to part the Red Sea, vanish hunger and poverty from the world, and explain Einstein’s Theory of Relatively all present easier challenges when it comes to such a simple explanation. Get Lucky to eat. No, no, no. Lucky Mama merely presents every conceivable dish known to man and then we rely on divine intervention to assist. Sometimes we get Lucky, others we do not.
Q. Why does Lucky insist on removing his shoes, regardless of situation, weather et cetera?
A. See previous answer. You convince him to play society conformism and we shall concentrate on Einstein’s theories.
Q. What happened in his life that caused the regression? What event sparked the ‘change’ and introduced Lady A to these shores?
A. Raising four children, whose current ages all stand at six and under, was proving not quite the challenge we had hoped for; so much free time and energy abound in easy street. Therefore, we felt it necessary to introduce a more challengingly situation, and pitch our parenting skills against a more worthy adversary. These days, we prefer to hold the magical event secret and selfishly refuse to share our miracle discovery with the world…
Q. Will Lucky ever talk?
A. Hope and love drive the days. The days become weeks, and these in turn, stretch into months, and eventually, years over the hill.
Q. Why does Lucky love the Teletubbies so much?
A. Find us a self-respecting student who does not. What is there not to love about four brightly coloured, overgrown teddy bears, who live in a land with tubby toast and a sun housing a smiling baby? Proof enough that Lucky, is in fact, as perfectly normal as the next child.
