We had two boys; 8 and 5 years old, for a sleepover. the boys are well-natured, considerate, and familiar with Sebastian's behaviours. They know to recognize and run for cover when he screams and becomes aggressive. Sebastian is familiar with them, and I thought it would be a good experience for all to share space. All including me. Sebastian is my only child and I do not know much about "neurotipical" children's behaviour.
I have to admit that Sebastian, although demanding in some ways, is not as challenging in other areas. I am just not used to the constant questions of always wandering, forming minds, and the steady flow of ideas and projects. Sebastian, when left alone, is happy to chew on his favourite rubbery, soft objects. He jumps on his trampoline. Occasionally he flips through a book. The most adventurous thing he does is to find himself a new, most of the time inappropriate object to chew on. The visiting boys had ten ideas a minute about what they were going to do next. They were conquering Sebastian's puzzles with zest and satisfaction, making up superhero stories using a little Garfield the cat plastic figurine, requesting toys, drinks snacks (I did not have any except of raw carrots): my head was spinning. I think it would take me some time to figure out how to manage a crowd of three kids.
