Cute Story from Lil' Bro

I had to share this one:

I was in Dunkin Donuts with Lil' Bro a couple of weeks ago. An army dude dressed in his fatigues came in. Lil' Bro kept staring at him. The guy smiled at Lil' Bro, obviously used to little boys' fascination with all things military. After a while, Lil' Bro said, "Are you wearing your pajamas?" He said no, they were his fatigues. I explained that he's in the army and protects our country and helps keeps us all safe.

And Lil' Bro goes, "In his pajamas?"

Kids rock.

What a great boy! Sorry I haven't been around. This week has been so absolutely nutty and there are big changes ahead. I have to figure out how to get my blogging time in because life is about to step up to a VERY busy pace.

Love you,
Jane

Just read your last post, too.All of the social issues you describe are typical of "gifted" children, and in the great big mysterious brain(neuroscientist little sister, great source of info), there are so many weird little glitches we all have.You're son's intelligence may be tied to his Tourettes, it's possible that this gift came with a sidekick. See Kim Peek, if you haven't already. It's a facet of his personality, and from your voice i think I can detect that maybe you weren't head cheerleader in high school(I could be wrong, I apologize if I am). My point being, you are funny and intelligent and loving, and that will do more for him than the fickle acceptance of the crazy social environment of school. One of my son's classmates asked me "Why is he so weird?" and my mind cruelly shot back "Why are you so fat?" but I didn't say it. Because this kid asked this with true affection for his weirdo classmate.Don't ever regret the genetic lineage you gave him, we are all the sum of our weirdnesses, but what better guide through the social crap could he possibly have than you, Lady? You gave him a brilliant mind. He will overcome the rest(I know firsthand how much it sucks watching them get their efforts to socialize thwarted, my son has jumped out of the car at the park and offered everyone there free drawings of the Titanic.Or tried to lure them into playing chess with him, next to a 20 ft high climby thing.)I'm glad he is getting on well with everyone, it will only get better. Because little kids aren't as skeptical as we are.
