Life with an Aspie

I was helping Emmet get dressed one morning -- pull-on pants, no-button shirt, slip-on shoes, etc. -- when we had the following exchange:

Emmet: Mom, did you know that light isn't really matter? It's really just an idea, even though it can affect matter through radiation... (continues in this vein for a while)

Me: Go to the potty, Emmet; we'll talk about particle physics when you're done.


  1. my son can spell all of the planets (in order). he just turned four.


  2. Do you watch Parenthood? I love the show and am so impressed by the kid who has Aspberger's but I'm curious what you think. Legit issues? Over/under-dramatized? thoughts?
