The other day when we were playing out on the deck (Joy was pedaling around the deck on her trike, woo hoo!), Rose asked an unexpected question.
"Do I have a little bit of autism too?"
I wish I'd thought to ask her what exactly was on her mind.
Instead I said something like, when someone has one little thing that's part of autism, we don't call it autism. You have to have a lot of things that are part of autism for it to be autism. But probably most people have one or two or more little things.
And then something else interrupted the conversation, I don't even remember what.
I hope the question comes up again, though.
I'd really like to know what was up.
