a young boy with Aspergers:
"You know what you need? You need a vacation. You need to get these kids a babysitter and take your husband and go somewhere. You need to go somewhere nice, away from these kids. You know, you need to go to hotel or something. And then come back later and be nice to these kids... 'cause you just went on the best vacation ever."
Amen, little 7 year old brother. Amen.
I love my neighbors kid and his profound unfiltered wisdom. Occasionally it's irritating to hear point blank these little truths. Sometimes it sort of stresses me out how right on he is and makes me wonder if everyone else sees through me like he does. But when he's right, he's right.
Besides, whose gonna say "naww. I don't need a vacation. the beach? phhfft... naw."
