I hate your kids

...and other things autism parents won’t say out loud.

The two most surprising events of the day

1. I saw around five crabs (some teeny, some bigger than my hand) crawling around Benjamin’s school today. (The campus, it should be noted, is mostly outdoors). Tried to get photos but the crustaceans were either shy, fast, or both. 

2. I learned that Benjamin can sing Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, in tune and with shockingly good articulation. Apparently one day Kayla (therapist, babysitter, light of Benjamin’s life) was singing it sort of under her breath and Benjamin found it catchy. He started requesting replays (“I want eyes,” he’d say), and soon he learned it. Tonight they did a little duet and he got all giggly.
