My husband and my son went to the golf tournament in Arizona where Tiger Woods is playing. After he made his shot, he came over to the fans and started shaking a couple of people's hands. My son( who's 4) yelled to him "Go, Tiger!". He laughed and gave my son a big hand shake and tousled his hair.

My son who is autistic has only been talking for the past year. He has shown an interest in golf for the past couple of months. He knows the lingo: par, birdie, bogey and such. I showed him a picture of Tiger Woods on the tv and told him, Tiger was the best player in the world. Andrew then said "does he go back to zoo after golf?" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I love his quirky sense of humor.

That's hilarious! I love the things kids say...when my nephew was around 5 (he's 12 now), his mom (my sis) had been talking about going to Miami for a short vacation. She talked about it for a few days, wasn't sure she should, she didn't feel right leaving him, etc. Anyway...one evening he says..."Mom, are you still going to YOUR-ami?, LOL...He had obviously been hearing "MY"-ami instead of Miami.

No, unfortunately they weren't able to have pictures taken. You couldn't bring your cellphone, camera or even your purse into the tournament. I would have loved to have a picture so I could have put it up in his room!

Even though Tiger lost his round and had to leave the tournament, I will always be grateful to him for showing my son kindness.

Thanks to everyone who viewed this thread. We are going to Disneyland for a couple of days and then heading down to San Diego. My husband and son are invited to see a ship being decommissioned. They get the chance to roam around throughout the whole ship. I think Andrew is going to love it!

Everyone at Cake Central, have a wonderful day!!!
