my daughter has profound autism and barely speaks. When she does its two or three word sentences. She will bring me a cup and say drink please. Or Say go nite nite. Things like that. She is 7 btw.
So tonight she is watching Beauty and the Beast and her 5 year old brother, just to antagonize her is walking back and forth in front of the screen. she is crying and groaning and kicking her feet and getting upset and I asked him a couple of times to stop and to please sit down and watch the movie and to be nice to his sister. So he sits down, for about 5 minutes then gets up and does the same thing.
Out of the blue my daughter yells at the top of her lungs "Move out of the way Stupid!"
I almost dropped my cup of tea. I didn't want to laugh because obviously that was mean to say but to hear that from her was one of those priceless moments.
I did tell her that wasn't nice and don't call your brother stupid but I was secretly giggling just for the fact that she actually said that. Show that she can speak when she really wants to get her point across.
