A blog about the poetic adventures of two curly haired and boys...and Autism.

He tries again. This time... slowly, to make sure he got it right and more importantly, to make sure she's got it!

" I..........waaaaaaaaaaaaaant.........Popcoooooooool!"

Then he looks at her with his big, black, pleading eyes.

She sighs.
The indication that her heart just melted and a sign to him that she's totally going to cave.
"Okay.", she folds."What color?"

With a little happy dance he bolts to the kitchen and immediately declares,
